Boston, Mass. (Vocus) July 8, 2010 Globoforce, the world's leading provider of global, strategic employee recognition solutions, today announced that Grant Beckett, its Vice President of Product, will co-present with Susan McGowan, Biogen Idec's Associate Director of Employee Benefits, at the IHRIM 2010 Global Forum at the Hyatt Harborside in Boston on July 12, 2010. The session, "Employee Engagement Strategies that Re-Ignite the Global Workforce," will be held from 4:00-4:30 p.m. and will be followed by a panel discussion on Global Employee Engagement from 4:30-5:00 p.m.

The session will explore how strategic employee recognition programs can be used by leading organizations to unify fragmented recognition efforts, cultivate future leaders within the company, increase retention and loyalty, and thwart an exodus of talent, particularly once the economy rebounds.

Attendees will also learn:

  • How strategic recognition can be applied to culture management and deliver on key C-level priorities.
  • Why a unified, technology-driven global recognition platform improves reward efficiencies and minimizes company risk.
  • What technology platforms and SaaS models enable HR leaders to link recognition to performance management and measure recognition's impact on business results.
  • How Biogen Idec built a global recognition program linked to the company's core values, designed to motivate and reward its global workforce in a simple and consistent way. IHRIM's Global Forum brings together a variety of industry experts. Practitioners, academics and advisors will present case studies, theoretical findings, and best practices to address the major issues and challenges facing HRIT organizations today. The Forum will provide a distinctive learning and information sharing environment which will allow presenters and audience to share knowledge, discuss ideas, and exchange feedback on real challenges and issues
