Presentation Details

Forms of employee recognition and rewards have been a part of organizations for over a century to improve employee engagement and retention. Over the decades, approaches have been modernized and companies are implementing more holistic recognition strategies to improve the overall employee experience.  This session will share combined experiences and learnings from hundreds of organizations that have upgraded their recognition and reward strategy.


In this session, you will learn:

  • Why focusing on a Recognition strategy is critical in today’s workplaces and how it can be leveraged through economic uncertainty

  • The evolution of Employee Recognition, and why certain methods are outdated and no longer adequate on their own

  • Proven effective methods and practical solutions to creating a culture of appreciation

  • A live case study from OneStream on implementing employee listening into their organization.
