You can listen to my interview of Stephen about his book here. You can read my review of his book here.
As he heard of my plans to write a book on Employee Engagement, he offered to write a chapter. It's titled Stephen's Story. In it he shares his personal journey towards recognizing the power of employee recognition and a simple two-step plan to make it a fixed part of his day. Every day.
I'll read Stephen's Story and let you hear the power of a simple approach to employee recognition.
As we all know, Voice Recognition is starting to become an important Biometric technology. While it may not enjoy the "limelight" applications which Vein Pattern Recognition and Iris Recognition do, Voice Recognition is finding its specialty in specific niches such as call centers, financial trading, and specialty forensic cases. One of the primary advantages of Voice Recognition is that it has a low cost point of entry. Meaning, there is no extra, specialized hardware or software needed-it can leverage off of existing technology at a place of business or organization. In this radio show, we interview Ms. Sherrie Adcock, CEO of Voice Security Systems, Inc., based out of California. They have been in the Voice Recognition business for almost 20 years, and three US patents to their recognition. We learn more from Ms. Adcock about their "secret sauce" for successful Voice Recognition implementations, and what the future holds for it.

Why are so many people talking about Employee Engagement? We'll find out a few tips on the effectiveness of employee recognition and how it can potentially provide financial success to your company. Zane Safrit, CEO, Business Consultant, and Author will share some of his experiences and lessons learned on building employees awareness of company goals, raising morale, and increasing productivity.
Zane Safri has spent his career in call center operations, many of them serving international customers and sales forces. From an entry level position as a customer service rep to team leader to Assistant Director and Country Manager to finally CEO he saw the language of employee recognition and employee engagement is a univeral language and so are the forms of its ROI. As Country Manager, he opened his company's first overseas office in Seusseldorf, Germany and used employee recognition and engagement to double sales and triple the number of new orders within the first six months. As CEO of a small conference call service provider he rebudgeted the company's advertising and marketing budgets towards employees and customers. This resulted in revenue growth of 80% while retail prices were pushed lower by over 70%, all the time generating positive cash-flows, the lifeblood of small business. In his book Recognize THEM: 52 Ways to Recognize Your Employees In Way They Value he has compiled many of the ways he used to recognize and engage employees, many of them require no financial inventment, research and data to show the positive impact on a company's performance and inspiring quotes from business leaders on the value of employee recognition. He also shares his mistakes to help you avoid them as you being this journey towards a culture of engagement.
The Fingerprint has become the de facto standard not only for law enforcement, but for the world of Biometrics as well. Apart from Hand Geometry Recognition, Fingerprint Recognition has been around the second longest. There are many configurations availalbe with Fingerprint Recognition. For example, you can have local authentication with just one stand alone device, or, you can have a client server configuration, where many Fingeprint readers are connected to one central server. This type of set up is most common with very large organizations and businesses. Also, typically, when you use Fingerprint Recognition for Physical Access Entry applications, there is then the need to rip out the old locks and put in new electromagnetic lock strikes, wired to an access control reader. But, this may no longer be necessary. In today's interview, we talk with Mr. Bob Fee, Director of North American Sales for Zwipe AS, based out of Norway. They have come up with a brand new solution, known as known as a 'Match On Card'. In this interview, we learn more about this new technology, and how Biometrics can be a part of it. We also find out about the future of 'Match On Cards', and the promise they hold to keep Biometric deployments and configurations simple and easy to use.
If one were to examine the Biometric Modalities which are available today, the one technology which would stand out in terms of recognition by the public is that of Facial Recognition. Why is this so? Well, after the tragic incidents of 9/11, Facial Recognition, received a lot attention by the press and the media as the "cure all" technology for all of the security ailments present in the United States at the time. But when Facial Recognition failed to live up to its standards, it was ripped apart to shreds even as a viable technology. Also, Facial Recognition can be used very covertly, thus creating claims of privacy rights and civil liberties violations by the American public. In this radio show, we interview Mr. Joe Rosenkrantz, CEO of FaceFirst. From him, we will find out first hand how successful or not Facial Recognition actually is, and the kinds of deployments which they have implemented. We will also discuss with him the social implications of Facial Recognition, and what it means to the American society as a whole.

In the course of these radio shows, we have interviewed thus far two Biomeric Vendors whom specialize in scanning the eye for the purposes of verification and/or identification of an individual. So far, we have examined Sclera Recognition, as well as Iris Recognition. In today's interview, we interview Mr. Martin George, the CEO of Smart Sensors, LTD., based out of the United Kingdom. The UK can be considered the 'home' of Iris Recognition, as it was Dr. John Daugmann of the University of Cambridge whom developed the first set of commercial Iris Recognition algorithms. What sets Smart Sensors. LTD., today from the rest of the competition is that they are a 'one stop shop' for the customer wanting to use Iris Recognition technology. For example, they noy only offer various types of Iris Recognition hardware devices, but they also offer SDK's and database prototypes to meet the exacting needs of the customer. In this radio show, we learn from Mr. Martin George about their Iris Recognition products and services, what sets them apart from other Iris Recognition vendors, and what their plans and visions for the future are.
Let Them Shine is the fourth category in my book titled Employee Recognition: 52 Ways to Recognize Your Employees in Ways They Value.
Shine is an adjective, defined as to give forth or glow with a light; shed or cast light. Imagine not only this sentence but this reality in your company:
We strive to shine lights on the stars of our company - our employees - whose strengths, talents and successes are the foundation for our shared successes, today and tomorrow.
Here is another definition: to be bright with reflected light, glisten, sparkle.
Each employee is positioned to shine not only with our company but with all of our vendors, partners and customers. As they shine, our company shines.
Far too many companies are like the farmer whose land sits on top of a diamond field. As they toil in the hot sun, battling the weather and the economy, the rising costs of fertilizer and tractors they ignore the diamonds on which they walk.
You’re looking for ways to uncover those diamonds around you, beside you, on the floors above and below you. You know that if you let them shine, if you shine your light on their brilliance, your company will glisten in the marketplace.
The metaphor is almost over the top. But employee recognition is nothing more than shining your light of appreciation on those who build your company, providing a place for their own light of strengths and talents to shine and be seen and appreciated.
In this last category, I've listed 13 ways to help you shine your light on your employees, let them shine their light of achievements and engagement. I've added a few quotes to keep you inspired along the way.
