Pay It Forward: Sharing the Recognition Journey

November 19, 2012 Darcy Jacobsen

On December 12 (3pm ET), we will host a webinar with Amy Montefinese, VP Global Total Rewards & HR Operations at Premier Farnell. Premier Farnell is a leading worldwide distributor of electronic components, and Amy will join us to talk about the process of defining and creating their strategic global reward and recognition program.

The webinar is called “Making the Most of Recognition: Premier Farnell’s Recognition Journey” and I highly recommend you sign up for it, not only because Amy is delightful (she is), but also because it is a rare opportunity. Working as we do within our own walls, we rarely have the chance to learn from the experience of our peers in creating great recognition programs.

We’re really grateful to Amy and the others like her who have taken the time to share their stories and lessons learned—and to inspire others along the way. The webinar is hosted by Globoforce, but make no mistake, it is Premier Farnell that will be the focus. This is your chance to hear their story directly from Amy, to ask her questions, and to take away ideas that might be valuable for you in your own journey.

Here’s a little write up on the webinar:

Passion. Team spirit. Respect for diversity. These are just a few of the core values tied to Premier Farnell’s company culture. With 4,000 employees around the globe, this organization knew its workforce was “hungry” for recognition. By directly tying their engagement strategies to corporate culture, Premier Farnell has been able to turn their employee rewards program into a strategic company initiative.

 Join Premier Farnell’s VP of Total Rewards, Amy Montefinese, and Globoforce‘s Thad Peterson, who will share:

  • How Premier Farnell unified its global workforce through recognition
  • The possibilities of recognizing remote employees equally
  • How recognition transforms company culture

Considering all of this, I thought I would also remind you of some of the past webcasts we have available , featuring other voices and other recognition stories. Perhaps one of them will inspire you.
