Fort Worth, TX (PRWEB) June 10, 2011
Inspirus, a leading provider of workforce recognition solutions, announced that it will team up with the Human Capital Institute and human capital management marketing firm Starr Tincup to present a free webinar on June 23, 2011. During this informative hour, two of the industry’s leading experts will discuss how merging workforce recognition with talent management can maximize an organization’s return on talent, helping companies motivate, engage and retain skilled workers.
To remain competitive in the job market and to prevent an exodus of talent when economic conditions improve, executives and managers need to explore ways to develop, strengthen and grow their programs for creating great company cultures as well as implementing solutions for keeping employees engaged and satisfied. The upcoming webinar offers information to help with this endeavor.
“Depending on which news broadcasts you listen to, the economy is either improving or headed for a double-dip recession. No matter what the case, keeping employees engaged is crucial,” says Kimberly Smithson-Abel, vice president of strategy and business development for Inspirus. “Whether you need to keep your top talent from leaving or to recognize employees for doing more with fewer resources, workforce recognition is the key.”
The webinar will take place at 3pm EST on Thursday, June 23 and addresses how market conditions provide tipping points for the convergence of integrated talent management and workforce recognition; reality checks demonstrate that the market is moving in the direction of integration now; and value drivers demonstrate why business leaders should prioritize the integration of talent management and workforce recognition.
