Achievers Quote: When a company aligns its core values with those of its employees—and employees are empowered to recognize each other, positive behaviors and business outcomes are the result, –  said Dr. Natalie Baumgartner, chief workforce scientist at Achievers. I look forward to SHRM and plan to share my experience implementing a culture of recognition within our company, as well as helping our customers deploy technology that supports positive outcomes across their own organizations. Recognition is contagious. When we see leaders recognizing in a meaningful way, we know the program is valued and that makes us want to take part in it.
