1:05-2:20 pm STRATEGIES FOR ENGAGING YOUR WORKFORCE: Research-based Strategies for Increasing Employee Engagement in Your Organization
Dr. Nelson / Session Sponsor: Paul Mueller Company
The Harvard Business Review has cited “recognition given for high performance” as the most impactful driver of employee engagement. The Aberdeen Group has found the number one way best-in-class organizations improve employee engagement is through employee-recognition programs. Meanwhile, most employees today feel overworked and underappreciated, and are less valued and more stressed for their efforts than ever before. Based on his most recent book, Recognizing & Engaging Employees For Dummies and content from 1501 Ways to Reward Employees, Dr. Nelson, will help you understand the link between employee recognition and engagement and how to make that connection in your organization – even with limited time, resources and budget. This session will focus on core research-based elements found in strong cultures of recognition and engagement that inspire employees to new levels of performance and help to create an exciting, positive work environment with a strong competitive people advantage for the organization. Six dimensions will be presented with examples that you can implement to create a more motivating work environment for your employees today.
2:20-2:40 pm BREAK & EXPO
2:40-4:00 pm CREATING A CULTURE OF RECOGNITION: Build Recognition into the Strategies and Behaviors of the Organization, Transform Your Workplace into an Employer of Choice
Dr. Nelson / Session Sponsor: Paul Mueller Company
Based on the book 1001 Rewards & Recognition Fieldbook, this presentation will expand your thinking of what recognition really means and what you can do to build it into your culture. Compared to the average company, employees in a recognition-focused company are five times more likely to feel valued, six times more likely to recommend the organization, seven times more likely to stay, and 11 times more likely to feel completely committed to their jobs and mission of the organization. In this presentation, Dr. Nelson discusses the current state of employee engagement and recognition including the most recent employee engagement research regarding effectiveness and related case studies. He will share how a customized employee recognition program is needed to improve and maintain a culture of recognition and engagement in any organization, moving from a culture of entitlement to a culture of performance and increased competitive advantage. Topics covered in this session will include:
