Madison Announces New Webinar: “Does Employee Recognition Still Matter?”

New York, NY. October 12, 2011 — Madison Performance Group, today announced a new webinar designed to help HR leaders strengthen their business case for employee recognition programs in a challenging economy. Madison Performance Group is the global leader in providing workforce recognition and sales incentive marketing solutions for Fortune 1000 corporations.

Led by, Mike Ryan, Senior Vice President of Madison Performance Group, this webinar will provide today’s HR leaders with new insights that will help them reengage their employees in the “new normal”. Ryan will also share Madison’s top five recognition best practices to help progressive companies retain their top performers and optimize outcomes.

“With unemployment stubbornly stuck at high levels, some business leaders are asking if employee recognition still matters,” says Ryan. “Consequently, many of today’s employees are motivated to keep their jobs—not excel in them—and they are looking to leave once the opportunity presents itself. Businesses need to get back to creating and nurturing the type of employee relationships that drive long term growth and employee commitment,” he concludes.

Attendees will learn why… 1. Corporate cultures have become more competitive (vs. cooperative) and how a recalibrated recognition strategy can effectively meld the two cultures together. 2. Individual innovation is an untapped asset in a talent-driven economy and how recognition can help you commercialize those “personal patents” that could otherwise go unnoticed. 3. Why a local manger’s role is so critical and what’s holding him/her back from getting involved. 4. Why you can’t afford to ignore the unique motivational needs of virtual workers. 5. Why the HR suite needs to start thinking more like their marketing colleagues if it wants to truly optimize the impact of recognition.
