There is decades worth of data, spanning from academia to consulting houses, proving that recognition is one of the simplest, most powerful ways to improve morale and engagement. 

Unfortunately for many organizations, the extraordinary conditions of the pandemic have removed many of the traditional ways recognition is organically exchanged. 

As workers feel the pangs of prolonged social isolation and the climate of uncertainty and disruption lingers on, employee burnout and disillusionment are on the rise and recognizing employees for their contributions has never been more imperative.

In this program, Achievers’ Matt Tremmaglia and Brie Harvey will debunk common myths about employee recognition and provide the blueprint to getting it right for the COVID-era workplace.

Viewers will come away from this webcast with:

  • Real examples from some of the world’s most successful organizations on how they have adjusted their recognition strategy since the pandemic
  • Tips and best practices for measuring the ROI of employee recognition
  • Ideas and a free campaign template for Employee Appreciation Day

Attendees of the live videocast will also receive a free signed copy of New York Times best-selling author Chester Elton’s new book, Leading with Gratitude.
