Understanding your workers through the lens of employee experience is a way for “leaders to inspire and energize their workforces toward greater well-being and performance,” according to The Employee Experience Index, a research study by the IBM Smarter Workforce Institute and Workhuman®. In one of its key findings, the study explores how employee recognition can have a significant and measurable impact on the employee experience. 

Today, during these times of tremendous upheaval, it’s even more critical for HR and business leaders to stay lazer-focused on employee experience to maintain – and even strengthen – corporate culture.  

It’s against this backdrop that I’m particularly excited to tell you about an upcoming SHRM webcast, sponsored by Workhuman: Building a Culture of Connection: Citizens’ Story, scheduled for Sept. 29 at 12 p.m., ET

The first in Workhuman’s new “Time to Thrive” webinar series, this program features Derek DeSousa from Citizens and Derek Irvine from Workhuman. Together, they’ll discuss Citizens’ journey to modernizing employee recognition. With a people-first mindset, Citizens has successfully used recognition to maintain a culture of connection – and collaboration – during these unprecedented times.  

In one information-packed hour, you’ll learn:

  • How Citizens implemented a modern, strategic employee recognition program that supports their culture
  • Tips for effective change management to drive excitement and enthusiasm for peer-to-peer recognition
  • Key insights from Citizens’ recognition data that reveal pockets of connection and engagement across the organization

In addition, SHRM Certification has approved this webcast for 1 PDC toward SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP recertification

The “Time to Thrive” program is a rare opportunity for HR and business leaders to learn how their peers at thriving organizations are creating human-centered workplaces. Stay tuned for more upcoming events in this program.
