    SPS SHRM is proud to introduce:

    Theresa Chambers from Recognition Works


    "Get Your Thank On!"


    Although U.S. companies spend upwards of $100 billion annually on recognition and
    incentives, 65% of employees say they don’t feel valued for their contributions. Trends
    show companies scaling back on formal awards and focusing more on fostering a culture
    of appreciation at the team level – where it matters most! This session will expand the way you think about employee recognition and inspire you to practice more meaningful appreciation at work.

    We’ll begin with a short presentation to:

    • Build a business case to elevate recognition as more than just a “nice thing to do” to one that increases engagement and retention;
    • Introduce the four-dimensional model that challenges the way many organizations practice employee recognition; and
    • Practice ThankologyTM, the art of noticing “out loud.”

    We’ll wrap up with a discussion to share low cost tools and ideas to build stronger
    cultures of appreciation and engagement. Join us and #getyourthankon!
