The HR Tech 2023 Session

Within the discussion, all participants established that recognition is a human need. Knowing this, companies should be prioritising efforts to make recognition where it is due. The pandemic has brought new challenges to the HR world, as many have taken alternative modes of work which has caused some degree of disconnection in many workplaces. 

Currently, as mentioned by Ellsworth, the conversation on recognition in the workplace is much more mainstream. This is echoed by the other speakers, as they continue to delve into the changing needs of employees to feel connected with the company culture and fulfilled in their roles. 

Cheesman noted that regular appreciation creates an air of social connectivity. Thus, it is important to recognise everyday achievements – even if they are small. However, this does not mean going all out in small achievements – rather giving the right degree of recognition for the right achievements. 

A significant way to do that is to build sentiment and create a personalised way to recognise employees. Understanding that employees differ in the way they could feel recognised is important. Building on symbolism and combining it with personal elements and doing it in time is what creates recognition. 

2023 Global Culture Report

The report established that although the tough time brought on by the pandemic has passed, there is a lot that has to be done to improve workplace culture and recognition. 

Within the report, they acknowledge that leaders need support in their efforts to team development and boost company culture. They recognise that modern leaders will have an easier time navigating the new challenges, but leaders of all kinds will need support, appreciation and connection to do so. 

The advancement of technologies has caused work to evolve at an even faster rate than before. As various traditional work standards, such as working from the office and 9-to-5s, are becoming transformed, traditional leadership styles will also become redundant and there will be a need to rethink ways to lead workplaces.
