With changing needs among both employees and organizations, policies are moving in a direction that not only keeps the workforce engaged but also considers its future aspirations. Yet creating a collaborative work environment has challenged many businesses as the workforce continues to operate in an environment marked by volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity (VUCA). If organizations can recognize employees’ needs, work, and contributions, it becomes much easier to create a healthy environment and a smoother path to achieving business goals. Uncover some great strategies for designing recognition programs for your workforce in 2023.

Let’s face it. Our old playbooks and antiquated performance-management processes are not going to serve us in today’s ever-changing environment. What will? Alignment. Alignment creates agility, which drives organizational impact and encourages employees to align their personal development and performance goals with the company’s strategic priorities. Join leaders from Sounding Board in this workshop to safely throw away your pretenses and even some of your processes. You’ll learn why current performance approaches are not working today; why alignment is the first step to ensure that any development strategy works; and why a dynamic, developmental approach is critical for organizational success.

Brace yourself. By 2030, the U.S. could face a deficit of more than 6 million workers. Globally, that number could reach 85 million, with major shortages in China, Japan, Russia, Indonesia, and Brazil. As a result, a talent war is coming. Retaining your best people and creating a talent magnet will be critical. Winning the competition will take a profound shift in prioritizing the employee experience–from measuring employee engagement in real time to expecting more from our employee-experience technology to prioritizing communication, connection, and community. Together we will consider whether your EX strategy is up to the challenge–and if not, where you can start.
