Madison Presents Workforce Recognition Strategies That Go Beyond Engagement

TMike Ryan Explains How Employee Recognition Programs Can Help Companies Foster Long-Term Growth

New York, NY. October 24, 2012 — As organizations evaluate their recognition programs for 2013, Madison Performance Group, a global web-based workforce recognition and employee incentives solution provider, today will present workforce recognition strategies that go beyond employee engagement improvements at The Motivation Show 2012 in Chicago.

The presentation by Mike Ryan, Madison’s senior vice president of marketing and strategy, “The New Dimensions of Performance Improvement: How Employee Recognition Programs Help Companies Do More,” will focus on how the most progressive companies are using their employee recognition programs to drive outcomes and cultural conditions that support the long-term growth of the organization. Ryan is a member of The Motivation Show 2012 Conference Advisory Board.

“In a business environment that demands more, it’s not enough for employee recognition programs to simply promise higher levels of engagement,” said Ryan. “These initiatives should also help prepare the enterprise for the challenges and opportunities that await in what’s become a highly virtual and knowledge-based, global economy. In a world where the ability to access, keep, and leverage top talent is a competitive advantage, recognition planners should also be making a bigger impact at the corporate planning table.”

  • Attendees will learn how advanced use of recognition can: • Prepare an organization to thrive amidst the endless volume and velocity of change; • Help managers succeed in organizing, directing and motivating collaborative teams; • Help organizations commercialize the otherwise undetected “personal patents” within their value chain; and • Leverage existing feedback loops to better direct recognition resources, close performance gaps and build better business cases.

Ryan will also be speaking at Site Canada Education Day 2012 on November 14, 2012, in Toronto about “The Evolving Elevator Speech for Recognition: New Ideas, Opinions and Research Should be Changing the Way We Talk With Potential Customers.” Site Canada was formerly known as the Society of Incentive and Travel Executives.
