Trends in Employee Recognition

Registration is closed

The last few years have drastically changed how employees and employers view work. Turnover rates continue to rise, and retention rates continue to plummet. Employee recognition, when done right, creates a culture that helps employees thrive. In this session, we'll discuss trends in employee recognition, reasons to recognize, and the power of thank you in the workplace. This event will be led by Ryan Sudweeks. Ryan is the Enterprise Sales Director for Awardco and works with some of their largest clients in recognizing and rewarding their people. He’s spent over 20 years - most of his adult life - in the employee recognition industry. Part of that time has been spent facilitating manager recognition training and speaking to leadership groups around the world on the power of appreciation. Most recently, Ryan interviewed Jamie Lee Curtis at an event for HR leaders and innovators.
