AI, Predictive Analytics, and Human Intelligence.

AI (artificial intelligence) has effectively permeated our lives – and it’s the latest buzzword in business articles today. Simply put, AI is the science of making machines think like humans. The technology can process large amounts of data and do things like recognize patterns, make decisions, and judge like humans. Additionally, there’s predictive analytics, which is using data to predict future trends and events. We connect the two because AI can “do” predictive analytics by collecting, organizing, and analyzing data quickly.

Learn how you can effectively use these technologies to enhance your recognition strategy!

The Power of Tangible Rewards

The employee-employer relationship has dramatically changed. Today, employees hold more power than ever and have greater expectations than in previous years. With these elevated expectations, the need for organizations to rethink their recognition strategies is imminent. And the power to improve the employee experience and create profitable employee relationships is 100% achievable.

A new study just released from Runa, found that only 30% of employees are satisfied with the type of rewards they receive at work and how they are administered by their company. But more dramatic is the statistic that 65% of employees feel that rewards are key in their decision to remain with their employer!1 

In today’s climate, companies must recognize the impact that rewards have on employee retention and business success.

Back to the Basics: Recognition, Appreciation, and Employee Engagement

Recognition and appreciation should be the foundation of your employee engagement strategy and at this moment in time, it should be at the top of every CEO’s priority list.

According to Gallup’s most recent survey published in January of 2023, “employee engagement in the U.S. saw its first annual decline in a decade — dropping from 36% engaged employees in 2020 to 34% in 2021. This pattern continued into 2022, as only 32% of full- and part-time employees working for organizations are now engaged, while 18% are actively disengaged.”1  What does this tell us? It tells us it’s time for change and time to step up your recognition efforts… so your company doesn’t become a statistic.
