register today: appreciating and influencing greatness around the world
Culture | May 18, 2017
People are a strategic and competitive advantage for all companies. Whether you are a healthcare organization caring for patients, a manufacturing company producing the highest quality products, or a tech company creating the latest innovation, all companies are looking for the best and brightest people in order to succeed. If you want to attract, engage, and retain the best talent, you must create a culture where people want to come and do great, innovative work for you.
Research has found that appreciating and recognizing employees is a powerful way to build an engaging culture. While employee recognition is universally relevant around the world, there are cultural differences to keep in mind when it comes to giving recognition. Recognition for years of service is the most common program globally, but Brazil, France, China, and Japan use above and beyond performance recognition more often. Asian countries are also much more likely to turn to digital vehicles for giving recognition and prefer cash, redeemable points, or trips/vacations as awards.
What are the best practices when it comes to recognizing employees in different parts of the world when they all have different needs? Are you recognizing your employees in the most meaningful and effective ways?
