Special Guest: Debra Corey: Author of ‘See it. Say it. Appreciate it!’
Debra is a highly experienced and award-winning HR consultant, world-class speaker, and five-time best-selling author who has been named as one of the top 101 Global Employee Engagement Influencers and HR Most Influential Thinkers.
After 20+ years working as an HR leader for global companies such as Gap Inc, Merlin Entertainments and Reward Gateway, she now inspires and ‘pays it forward’ by helping others develop and deliver HR strategies in a rebellious way, pushing the boundaries and challenging the status quo to truly drive employee engagement.
Showing appreciation through recognition has been proven to be one of the most effective tools a manager has. From driving stronger business results to improving morale, relationships with their people, as well as their overall wellbeing, studies have found the impact and difference it can make. However, with 65% of employees saying that they don’t feel appreciated, and 75% of employees who quit their job citing a lack of recognition as the key driver, clearly something’s not working.
Debra is on a mission to change this so every employee feels appreciated, not just a few. Where recognition occurs for all of the small things that matter and make a difference, and not just the big ones. Where recognition happens continuously and in a timely manner to reap the ‘in the moment’ benefits. And where employees feel valued and appreciated through genuine, meaningful and inclusive recognition.
Join us as we discuss the importance of having formal and informal ways of showing appreciation.
