Sarah McVanel – On Recognition

Sarah McVanel shares the very first, easiest and least resource-intensive step to retention: 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.  See this December 2021 session with Sarah McVanel on The Solution to the Great Resignation:  RECOGNITION!
