Transforming the workforce with the right employee recognition strategy

Organisations can drive innovation and change by successfully implementing employee recognition and engagement strategies.
By: | August 18, 2021

Strong employee engagement, the ability to retain top talent and increased productivity are just some of the benefits organisations can enjoy by putting in place an effective employee recognition strategy.

There is, however, an existing disparity in terms of how managers and employees perceive the effectiveness of employee recognition progammes. In Singapore, for example, 30% of employees do not feel recognised, more than double the figure estimated by managers, according to a recent Achievers research.

During her presentation titled Powerful Employee Recognition Strategies to Maximise ROI at HR Tech Festival Asia Online 2021, Emma Harvie, Head of Client Services Team, Achievers APAC, will share best practice strategies on how organisations can shift the need on their recognition programmes to deliver frequent recognition for your employees and deliver on their organisation’s objectives.

Harvie will highlight why high frequency is key to any employee recognition programme’s success, discuss how social recognition can be leveraged to create meaningful relationships, and how organisations can rethink recognition to truly move the dial on engagement and culture.

As technology adoption continues to proliferate, HR functions are becoming increasingly automated, leading to HR roles having to be redesigned and reskilled to deliver value-add to organisations. To implement a successful and seamless HR technology strategy, job redesign and change management could hold the key, suggested Stephanie Sng, Manager, Creative and Professional Services Division, Workforce Singapore (WSG).

With WSG playing a key role in promoting the development, competitiveness, inclusiveness and employability of all levels of the workforce in Singapore, Sng, in her presentation titled Support for HR Digitisation and Transformation, will share how programmes offered by WSG have helped organisations in Singapore adopt HR technology, set effective HR policies and build a strong employee experience.
