CM131: “Recognition is for Everyone, Boomers!”

LISTEN below, and SUBSCRIBE to the podcast on iTunes or Stitcher.

Boomers often complain about how Millennials always want to be recognized, even if it’s just for doing their jobs. But the truth is that everyone values recognition! Appreciation, feedback, and coaching cost you nothing and go a long way toward increasing productivity and satisfaction in the workplace.

So, why aren’t you doing it?!

According to Gallup, “only one in three workers in the U.S. strongly agree that they received recognition or praise for doing good work in the past seven days.” Clearly, we have a recognition deficit, and we need to find ways to engage all employees — Boomers and Millennials — in ways that make them feel valued.

Join Kelly and Robby as they welcome special guest Jeremy Todd Ford, VP of Talent at United Natural Foods Incorporated, to discuss the value of recognition and discover the next “frontier” in recognition at work. You can’t afford to get this one wrong – recognition is for everyone!
