Online Webinar – Recorded – August 30th 2017
Activity Type: Education – Online or Digital Media 1 PDU – Free
Provider:  Human Capital Institute

In this interactive presentation, with Michael Levy (LinkedIn profile) CEO, Online Rewards you will learn how meaningful Employee Recognition is being used as a catalyst for driving Employee Engagement.

“Best-Places-to-Work” employers are utilizing creative and inexpensive solutions to driving Employee Engagement, and are finding that Recognition is one of the most effective ways to deliver results.

Michael has been responsible for the planning and execution of over 400 enterprise Reward & Recognition programs.

His presentation will detail what separates sophisticated Employee Recognition strategies from the antiquated “catalog and lapel-pin” programs of yesteryear.

Given that millennials represent almost the majority of employee populations, companies must move their recognition practices forward to encourage and embrace a multi-generational, diverse, and technology-infused population. Only then, can organizations leverage the enormous power of results-driven recognition.

When the majority of employee surveys come back with, “I don’t feel recognized” there is a problem.

But more importantly, a solution!
