Leading with Recognition for Extraordinary Business Results

Employee recognition has long been known to be the simplest, most effective and inexpensive way to boost morale and impact engagement (and by extension retention, sales performance, and customer satisfaction ratings).

Despite clear evidence from behavioural science about the amount and type of recognition needed to build employee engagement and business benefit, fewer than half of employers follow these best practices.

Brandon Hall Group’s Culture of Recognition survey found that surprisingly, only 49 percent of employers give performance-based recognition, and even fewer give recognition that is timely, frequent, and inclusive. According to a recent Achievers APAC research- managers in Australia are off the mark by 2x when it comes to understanding if their staff feel recognised. A big miss for managers and one that could prove costly!

In this webinar we will delve into the science of recognition and the business benefits of creating a culture of frequent recognition that aligns to organisational goals and values. Hear from Meahan Callaghan, ex Chief People Officer, Afterpay and one of the world’s leading researchers in the subject of employee science and TEDx speaker Dr. Natalie Baumgartner, Chief Workforce Scientist, Achievers on the role of recognition and engagement in impacting the bottom line.
