NEW YORK — Madison Performance Group, a global web-based workforce recognition and employee incentives solution provider, is celebrating Employee Appreciation Day on March 2 by calling on employers to make employee recognition a strategic part of their corporate culture. Employee recognition and reward programs positively impact employee engagement, which ultimately helps drive long-term, sustained competitive advantage and positive financial performance.
“Today’s knowledge-based global business environment is highly competitive and companies that only show employee appreciation on the first Friday in March are short changing their performance potential,” said Mike Ryan, Madison Performance Group’s senior vice president of marketing and client strategy. “The ability to access, keep and leverage top talent is a competitive advantage and the most successful companies are strategically using employee recognition to drive a corporate culture that supports the long term growth and innovation within their organizations.”
Madison will present a Human Capital Institute (HCI) webinar on the topic, “The New Dimensions of Performance Improvement and How Employee Recognition Programs Are Helping HR Leaders and their Companies Do More,” on March 20, 2012 at 3 pm ET. Interested attendees can register for free at http://www.madisonpg.com/insights/webinars/ .
Attendees will learn how advanced uses of workforce recognition are helping HR teams:
1. Prepare the organization to thrive amidst an increasing volume and velocity of change
2. Organize, direct and motivate collaborative teams
3. Recognize and publicize employees’ ideas and innovations
4. Leverage existing feedback loops to better direct recognition resources, close performance gaps and build better business cases for employee engagement and its anticipated outcomes.
