Recognizing your rock star employees

It’s no secret that recognizing your people is crucial to building a strong team of engaged, happy employees. That’s why it was a topic of conversation at last week’s IABC Speed Networking event in San Francisco. I swapped ideas and advice from fellow communicators on ways to infuse recognition into a company’s culture. So what’s important for creating an amazing...
