The Art & Science of Recognition in the New Work Environment


11/02 | 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM ET

Hosted by – The Future of Employee Engagement 2022

From the pandemic and the Great Resignation to Quiet Quitting and surging disengagement there’s one thing that’s clear: America’s workforce is struggling.

With 11.2 million vacant jobs as of July 2022, managers and business leaders across the country have been rethinking their retention strategies. And while this is important, retention is only part of the problem. A truly thriving organization has an actively engaged workforce that’s resilient to today’s challenges and prepared for tomorrow.

We know workers in a post-pandemic world are looking to their employers to prioritize wellbeing and purpose now more than ever. And research shows one of the best ways to build engagement is with employee recognition.

Still, many companies don’t have a formal recognition program established. This is in part due to a lack of understanding of its importance or how to do it well. During this session, we will break down the art and science of recognition and how companies can use this as a tool to prepare for the workplace of the future.

There is an art to constructing a highly functioning recognition program and establishing a culture of engagement in an organization. To determine the best course of action for building the right engagement and recognition strategy within your organization, data and research is a must. We will provide business leaders and HR professionals with a blueprint and new tools for engaging members of their teams through effective employee recognition strategies.

There is a shortage of critical talent, and organizations need to retain this talent now, more than ever. Turnover will continue to increase if organizations do not take vital steps toward incorporating human wellbeing into their overall engagement strategy.

We will help answer the question: “How do I build an effective recognition program that will meet the needs of the workplace of the future?”
