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.
Recognition programs can help promote collaboration and camaraderie within a remote workforce.
By Marta Chmielowicz
Many companies have been forced to institute mandatory work-from-home policies throughout the pandemic, but while some employees are finding the transition a welcome change of pace, the shift to remote can be isolating for people used to working collaboratively in an office.
Recognition is a key component of a remote talent management strategy.
With Theresa Harkins-Schulz, Senior Vice President of Customer Experience, Inspirus
The switch to a remote working environment has introduced many new challenges for HR leaders. Maintaining a connected culture and managing employee performance are among the most critical to business success—and with the help of an effective recognition strategy, organizations can tackle both head-on. In this Q&A, Theresa Harkins-Schulz, senior vice president of customer experience at Inspirus, shares how recognition can motivate employees while reinforcing goals and shaping positive behaviors across the workforce.
From learning programmes to employee recognition, organisations are implementing a host of new strategies to keep their employees engaged.
By Simon Kent
HR is often seen as the backbone of an organisation and employee engagement is one area where this is particularly true. The recent pandemic has not only shown how critical HR is to a united and productive workforce, it has also brought new challenges for HR to deliver on.

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!

We rank the top providers based on customer satisfaction surveys.

HRO Today’s Baker’s Dozen Customer Satisfaction Ratings are based solely on feedback from buyers of the rated services; the ratings are not based on the opinion of the HRO Today staff. We collect feedback annually through an online survey which we distribute to buyers directly through our own mailing lists and indirectly through service providers. Once collected, response data for all providers with a statistically significant sample size are loaded into the HRO Today database for analysis.
Much work remains to prepare recognition programs for new privacy regulations despite stiff penalties for non-compliance.

Over the last two years, an increasing number of countries and U.S. states have enacted privacy laws designed to protect individuals. Privacy laws are legal frameworks that set guidelines for the collection, storage, and processing of personal information.
Recognition is a key element of a post-COVID-19 employee engagement strategy.

With a dispersed workforce that operates at government facilities across the U.S., IT company T-Rex Solutions LLC already had the building blocks in place to manage remote workers before the advent of the coronavirus pandemic. But the crisis is putting massive strain on even the most prepared organizations. In fact, mental health provider Ginger reports that 69 percent of workers say this has been the most stressful time of their entire professional career, and 88 percent have experienced moderate to extreme stress over the past four to six weeks. For 62 percent, productivity has suffered as a result.
