IHR Rewards & Recognition Opening Remarks
Welcome to the Institute for Human Resources (IHR) Rewards & Recognition Workshops and Program! This session will introduce the Rewards and Recognition Community and the Institute for Human Resources (IHR) certification program. You’ll find out about the workshops that will be available, and learn how the IHR certification process works.
Meet Greg Butterfield, Senior Partner for Terryberry, a provider based in North America that manages employee recognition programs for over 25,000 organizations worldwide. Greg has over 30 years of experience in the field and is honored to be asked to fill in today for Mike Byam, the chairperson on the IHR Rewards and Recognition track and to work with an incredible board of industry experts to bring you these sessions.
Throughout this conference you will gain practical ideas and concepts that you’ll be able to put into practice in your business. Because recognition addresses the human need to be valued and to provide value in the workplace, a framework for rewards and recognition is vitally important. In this conference, we will look at why recognition is so important and how it can impact your business objectives. Giving employees recognition for their contributions has been proven to improve retention, enhance engagement and positively impact business performance. You’ll discover how these real results can happen in your business, and find out what the best practices are to use along the way.
During the IHR Program, you will also learn how to develop an effective recognition strategy that encompasses Design, Implementation, Review, and Assessment that also connects to you organization’s mission, vision, and values. This will ultimately strengthen the future of your organization.
