Sarah McVanel on “Recognition: The Solution to the Great Resignation” | NSB Engage Virtual Webinar

As the pandemic continues to change the world of work, many organizations and industries are facing an unprecedented staffing crisis. We’ve all heard tales of people leaving their jobs or switching careers as part of a broader re-evaluation of work and what really matters to them. Now, more than ever, we must pay close attention to the “Employee Experience‘.

How can employers give their people a reason to stay? 

Sarah McVanel shares the very first, easiest and least resource-intensive step: recognize the people you already have. Recognition is one of the most effective, accessible and cost-effective ways to fuel healthy working relationships, trust and collaboration.

The reality is, the changes in our workforce are here to stay. Employee expectations are higher, choices are greater, and there isn’t a single business that could survive without great people. 

Learn from Sarah about the multitude of manageable and effective ways to launch a successful recognition program and remain more resilient in the process.

Sample takeaways from her events:

  • Learn the FROG technique – Forever Recognize Others’ Greatness™
  • Understand the exponential power of recognition
  • How to ask your team what’s working and what’s not
