Employee Engagement is the most important issue for organizations

The Society of Human Resources Management (SHRM) and Globoforce recently released the findings and report of its annual employee survey.

Their key findings:
In the SHRM/Globoforce survey, 803 HR leaders and practitioners shared their practices
and perspectives on engagement and recognition and their impact on performance.
Some of the findings include:
1. Employee engagement is the most important HR challenge facing organizations.
2. Employees are more motivated and perform better when rewarded through praise
and prize.
3. Stand alone years-of-service awards are often an ineffective type of recognition.
4. Leveraging the collective recognition across a company provides a clearer picture of
employee performance.
5. Crowdsourced feedback can make performance reviews more effective and enhance
manager and employee appreciation.

The full report is attached.  Enjoy!
