Carol Meyers of Globoforce and Evren Esen of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) to share startling results and insights about employee engagement and recognition practices

SOUTHBOROUGH, Mass. and DUBLIN, Ireland – June 15, 2011 – Globoforce®, the world’s leading provider of SaaS employee recognition solutions, today announced it will host a webinar for HR leaders and practitioners on the state of employee engagement and recognition. The webinar will unveil the results of the 2011 Globoforce/SHRM Employee Recognition Tracker*, the first of a new semi-annual survey program. Scheduled for Thursday, June 23, 2011 at 11:30 a.m. ET, the free webinar will provide critical insight into the current engagement and recognition practices, perspectives, and challenges for today’s leading companies.
The results of this year’s survey are surprising. In fact, 54 percent of HR leaders do not think managers and supervisors at their company effectively acknowledge and appreciate employees, while an even higher percentage don’t measure their recognition programs. In the webinar, Globoforce’s Chief Marketing Officer Carol Meyers and SHRM Survey Research Center Manager Evren Esen will share the full results of the survey, including insider views as to why effective, measurable recognition continues to be a challenge at many companies.

Attendees to the webinar will gain actionable ideas to better engage their multi-generational employee base as well as learn:
• Which challenges are of greatest concern for HR leaders and how employee recognition can promote a positive, productive work environment
• How HR leaders currently practice rewards and recognition and which strategies are most effective for driving ROI and securing executive buy-in
• What are the best opportunities to engage and motivate today’s diverse workforce towards greater productivity and alignment
