Derek Irvine, co-author with Eric Mosely, of WINNING WITH A CULTURE OF RECOGNITION: Recognition Strategies at the World's Most Admired Companies ( answers why so many companies are reluctant to address why so few of their employees are actively engaged, emotionally and intellectually, with their work. Their book reveals the surprising answer: Most managers fail to formally recognize high performance and connect it with company culture. Salary and bonuses are only part of today's employment contract. To get everyone performing together, employers need to create a culture of appreciation, recognition, and reward. Derek Irvine, VP of Client Strategy and Consulting for Globoforce and co-author and Globoforce’s CEO, take an in-depth look at this question and provide hands-on steps to help any employer create a culture fostered by strategic recognition, a management practice as different from the old "rewards programs" as Six Sigma is from last century's "quality control." And in this process begin to enjoy the benefits of an engaged workforce which include higher profits, faster growth, higher cash-flows, lower employee turnover....a sustainable business through these turbulent times. In his role as a thought leader for Globoforce, Derek helps clients set a higher ambition for global, strategic employee recognition, leading consultative workshops and strategy setting meetings with such organizations as Avnet, Celestica, Dow Chemical, Intuit, KPMG, Logica, P&G, Symantec, and Thompson Reuters. An authority on the topics of employee engagement and recognition, he is a regular speaker at conferences worldwide and frequently published in leading media including Businessweek, Workspan, and HR Management. During his career, he's lived globally and advised clients in corporate strategy, organizational behavior, marketing, and corporate communications.
