Both MeritShare and Trakstar are headquartered in Seattle, WA and provide innovative software as a service solutions in the Human Resources category to help companies build performance-driven organizations. Trakstar CEO and co-founder David Martin says ” Many employees have grown up in a Facebook-Twitter-Instagram world where immediate feedback is available. We live in a social world and companies who embrace rather than resist social are more successful and have lower levels of employee voluntary turnover”.

MeritShare Co-Founder Travis Pearl adds “If your managers are still sitting down with your employees once per year to review performance and set goals or you are only giving recognition for years of service, you may not be fully engaging your employees and creating a performance-driven culture”.

The webinar will discuss:
– The effects of employee recognition and regular feedback on engagement
– The types of employee recognition that work best, including more modern trends
– Tips and Tricks for effective peer-based recognition and feedback
– 3 steps for implementing a successful employee engagement plan

You’ll leave this session understanding how to update your employee performance and recognition programs to be current with today’s trends and best practices.
