During their session, Irvine and Walker will demonstrate how HR leaders can retain employees and build an engaged, loyal, and productive workforce in any economy through the use of strategic recognition. With a mix of real-life anecdotes and measurable results, they will share how recognition tied to company values, available corporate-wide, and supported by innovative technology creates a culture of appreciation and unifies employees across teams, divisions, and countries.

Attendees to Tuesday’s session will also learn:

• Why strategic recognition is the fastest and most effective way to engage employees, increase retention, and foster a culture of appreciation.
• What recognition strategies and methods are the blueprint to success in today’s competitive talent marketplace.
• How Quintiles successfully implemented recognition on a global scale to improve retention levels.
• What best practices make an employee recognition program truly strategic.

HCI Human Capital Summit brings together the latest business thinkers, corporate leaders, and cutting-edge practices. Over the course of three days of keynotes, CEO roundtables, and corporate practitioner-led working sessions, the event will tackle the most important human capital topics at this point in time: Rethinking Your Workforce, Reengaging & Retaining Your Talent, and Reinventing Your Leadership & Management.
