required skill is 'effective communications'
—What does it really mean?

Are you prepared to communicate effectively across today’s globally diverse workplace?
Is your global workforce engaged?

In today’s fast-paced, multicultural workplace, every organization must leverage talents, expertise, creativity, and contacts from multiple geographical areas, multiple cultures, and multiple languages.

Although technology has virtually eliminated physical distances, job performance increasingly depends on the effectiveness of these interactions, and fundamentally on an individual’s and team’s ability to collaborate, develop relationships and generate relevant innovation. English may be the language of business, but non-native and native English speakers use English differently (often without realizing it).

Professionals are now being challenged to identify trends and consequences of communication across different languages and cultures in the workplace. Professionals must understand and present the essential qualities that can foster success and explain why they are important to leveraging diversity and inclusion in leading organizations.

that better incentivize, recognize and reward employees

1. How has employee engagement and recognition evolved in the digital age?
How does it compare traditionally?

2. Non-monetary incentives are appealing for the bottom line,
but how can companies make sure they are effective?

3. An intro to '' social interaction differentiates the platform?

4. Additional benefits companies can gain through recognition programs? (hidden and known)

Is it measurable?

Questions impacting every company:
