Ask the Guru: Recognition and Reward
How do we make our Recognition and Reward programmes more effective? UK organisations spend an astounding £37bn a year on employee bonuses1. Around 94% of all organisations offer some form of annual financial incentive. Yet 59% of UK employees say they do not receive enough recognition and praise to make them happy2. Just 3% of UK employees say they feel they’re treated like a key part of their organisation3. And our output per hour and per employee remains well below the G7 average4.
So how do we improve the effectiveness of our reward strategies?
Hear three inspiring lightning talks from Engagement professionals whose passion for effective Reward and Recognition strategies has re-ignited employee commitment and enthusiasm. Then have your say as part of the lively debate.
