When someone says “great place to work”, people often think of stunning offices with high ceilings, bright feature walls, sleep pods, free food and ping-pong tables.
But more research shows that while those things are nice and often do make people happy, on their own, they won’t make a positive, long-term impact on your company’s culture and effectiveness. Perks might attract people and provide short-term boosts in productivity and morale, but on their own, are not enough to transform the culture of a workplace and create an environment where people are thriving.
Perks can also come with a big price-tag; enough to turn off even the most enlightened or enthusiastic of CFOs. So how do you create an environment where people are both equipped and motivated to do their best work everyday without running your budget into the red?
Our panelists will share insights on how to cultivate a culture of employee engagement by designing an employee recognition program, using technology, innovation, and plain old human interaction to reward and recognise the contributions of your teams and individuals.
Why It Matters
Culture isn’t just an HR issue. It’s a business issue. It affects all employees — from legal to sales to IT– and it should be designed for all employees. By implementing a company culture based on reward and recognition, employers are discovering innovative solutions to develop and engage their employees authentically, whilst also improving their bottom line.
