Recognition and Retention: Fighting Turnover with Technology

January 8, 2018 | Michael Levy

Employees want to know that they’re contributing to company success and making a difference, and not just going through the motions to receive a biweekly check. If employers can realize that their recognition practices need to get up to speed and better align with employees’ job satisfaction, they’ll be more likely to keep employees happy and keep them around, which is where technology makes all the difference.
