New Perspectives on Recognition in the Workplace

According to a study by Bersin by Deloitte, 83% percent of organizations suffer from a deficit in employee recognition. In light of evidence suggesting that effective recognition programs can contribute to outsized business outcomes, it is imperative that organizations begin to study and understand pitfalls and opportunities that are encountered when managing a recognition system. This talk will draw on research conducted using recognition data of over 1,000 companies and 25,000 employees to uncover some of the patterns (good and bad!) that we're seeing in workplace recognition today.
