From study to study, satisfaction with recognition is consistently and highly correlated with overall employee engagement, and therefore a key indicator of employee productivity and loyalty. But why can recognition experiences, programs and practices have this type of impact? New insights from human science shed light on why recognition can be so motivating and rewarding, and drive behavior. We will review science and experience-based insights into how Recognition can be more than just a ‘thanks’, but a powerful cultural, leadership and development tool. The webinar will specifically cover:

  • Insights from the science of human motivation
  • How science explains the impact of recognition on individuals and business
  • How we can create more powerful recognition practices
  • How we can design more impactful recognition and reward programs
  • Simple methods to value the return on investing in reward and recognition
