Strategic recognition from Globoforce helped Quintiles achieve 90% and higher employee retention through values-based recognition of 23,000 employees in 59 countries.

CHALLENGE

Employee survey scores indicated only 63% of employees felt their direct manager or supervisor recognized them for good work. With employee turnover rates higher than its goal, Quintiles also needed to increase retention of highly skilled, hard to find employees.

SOLUTION

The Globoforce-powered “Work Worth Doing” recognition program lets managers and peers recognize behaviors consistent with organizational goals and reward individuals for exceptional work and performance for all global employees, fostering a new culture of shared success, engagement, and appreciation.

RESULTS

Soon after launch, employees reported managers were doing a much better job of recognizing their efforts. Retention rates also soared, increasing 13% with an overall retention rate of over 90%. Quintiles achieved all of this by increasing employee recognition four-fold while reducing the cost per award by half.
