Recognition Roundtable

Four CEOs share their vision for the future of employee rewards and recognition.

By Elliot Clark

As I wrote this feature article on the rewards and recognition portion of the HR services and technology industry, I was reminded of a college seminar I took on geology and ecology. I remember the professor talking about change and comparing the terraforming effects of glaciers that move, well, glacially, to volcanos that make change happen violently. The COVID-19 pandemic is the metaphorical volcano in the world of HR policy. I wonder what the outcome would have been if organizations had gradually adopted a more flexible approach to remote working instead of the violent upheaval caused by COVID-19 that continues to the start of this new year.

CEO’s Letter: Perceptions are Realities

HRO Today

By Elliot H. Clark

In this month’s issue, we present the Baker’s Dozen Customer Satisfaction Ratings of more than two dozen recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) providers. Talent acquisition is a complex blend of operational excellence, technological application, sales panache, and marketing. Yes, employment branding is a major part of the conversation. How current and potential employees view a company is a big part of the decision-making about joining or staying, so perception of the company’s policies are paramount in this dialectic.

Last month, we profiled the Baker’s Dozen Customer Satisfaction Ratings of the recognition and rewards industry. I want to discuss how rewards policies are related to attraction and retention, and how monumentally, epically, and inexplicably short-sighted it has been for so many companies to foolishly, stupidly, and callously cut the budget out from under their rewards programs during the global pandemic. And if you did, yes I am talking to you!
