In what seemed like the blink of an eye, how we engage employees has completely changed. Not even 15 years ago, some of the largest social platforms – LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter, to name a few – were nowhere to be found. And now, as we navigate a new landscape of how people communicate, much less how we communicate with our employees, one thing is clear: We’re all falling behind.
Companies need to recognize that the tools we used in the past to connect with our employees will not continue to work as our workforce changes. These tools were designed for a different workforce - one that did not need real-time interactive communications or regular transparent recognition. We need to accept that these tools are no longer a fit and respond by embracing new tools such as social media.
Learn how to be a rebel in designing a recognition strategy that challenges the status quo, encourages peer-to-peer recognition and promotes social cohesion, while mastering social media to put recognition under the spotlight.
