[Webinar] Stepping Up Global Recognition at Schneider Electric


Learn how Schneider Electric is building a culture of appreciation in our webinar next week.

In the five years we’ve conducted the SHRM/Globoforce Employee Recognition Survey, employee retention/turnover has nearly doubled as a top concern for HR professionals. “Fortune” listed retention as a top concern this year and in the United Kingdom, companies are more concerned about staff turnover than the impact of Brexit.

While millennials are now the largest generation in the workforce, I would caution anyone against thinking this is strictly a job-hopping issue with millennials. In an article for “Forbes” on 2017 workplace trends, WorkHuman speaker Dan Schawbel rightly predicted that the war for talent would heat up this year, writing: “The average tenure for employees, regardless of age, is a mere 4.6 years in the United States, and based on numerous studies we’ve conducted, millennials leave after two years.”

Add to this the fact that 3.2 million people quit their jobs in January (the most in one month in almost 16 years), and it becomes clear that our relationship with work has changed. How can we help our organizations adapt to this change? What can we do to enrich and add meaning to our employees’ experience at work?

Many studies have shown that appreciation is the key to employee happiness. In one survey of 200,000 employees, The Boston Consulting Group found that the single most important job element for all people is appreciation for their work.

I welcome you to join us for a webinar to learn how Schneider Electric, the global energy management leader with 160,000 employees, is seeing early results through its global recognition program – Step Up – as it builds a true culture of appreciation.

  • How Step Up launched in 113 countries and 23 languages in less than four months

  • Why technology and user experience are keys to a successful social recognition program

I hope to see you there!
