Terryberry Presents: Mastering Peer-to-Peer Recognition

Thursday, March 27th, 2014 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM EST

Free Webcast

Course Description:

Is your organization moving towards developing an effective program for Peer Recognition?

A culture of appreciation leads to people working together to achieve more. Learn about the latest trends and tools to help you establish a consistent culture of peer recognition in your business.

Experts agree, effective recognition is timely, personal and tied to the mission, vision and values of an organization. Managers and Business Leaders might not always be around to witness above and beyond work in action, but employees are. They might have experienced a situation when a coworker stepped in to help in the eleventh hour. Or they might know an employee who takes on extra tasks frequently and without complaining. So why not let them recognize the helpful acts of their peers? Not only does this help managers give employees the recognition they need, it also gives your employees a sense of ownership and participation in your organization’s recognition culture.

In this interactive webcast, you will learn:
  • What the research shows about peer recognition’s impact on business objectives
  • Best practices (and pitfalls to avoid) when establishing a peer recognition program
  • How to maintain enthusiasm and engagement over time
  • New tools to create consistency and ensure alignment
Who should attend:
  • Human Resource Professionals
  • Recognition Program Administrators
  • Managers
  • Business Leaders

10 Employee Recognition Best Practices

KevinSheridanEmployee Recognition is the #1 driver of employee engagement, says Kevin Sheridan, Best-Selling Author and Employee Engagement Expert.

In this whitepaper, Sheridan outlines recognition’s impact on employee engagement and defines 10 employee recognition best practices for ensuring that recognition has the most impact on your people and your business.

“Some might find it surprising that Recognition surpasses many other important motivational factors, such as adequate training, relationships with coworkers, physical working environment, and career growth. What might be most surprising is that an employee’s feelings about the Recognition she receives accounts for 56 percent of the variance in her level of Engagement. These results illuminate that even as adults, people still want to feel appreciated for a job well done,” writes Sheridan.
