Companies now have a revolutionary way to recognize employees with technology that’s smarter than ever. BI WORLDWIDE (BIW) is introducing two ways to combine real-time, actionable data analytics with the tried and true principles of behavioral economics.
BIW is pleased to announce a breakthrough in the world of employee recognition with the release of two recognition tools for managers: Onboarding Advisor and Recognition Advisor. These online, mobile-enabled solutions guide managers on how and when to provide recognition that is more meaningful to employees, from start day and beyond.
Onboarding Advisor is designed to get employees off on the right foot from day one by shortening learning curves, optimizing job satisfaction and immersing employees in the company’s culture. In addition to ramping up productivity for the new employee, the Onboarding Advisor interacts with managers to ensure they’re providing appropriate acknowledgement and recognition for completed onboarding tasks. BIW created this unique, two-way solution because the successful onboarding of new employees is critical in today’s business climate as companies are in tight competition to gain and retain the right talent.
Recognition Advisor uses data and behavioral science to help managers pinpoint the precise point in time at which recognition will have the most impact on an individual employee’s performance. Based on each employee’s personal data and recognition history, the Recognition Advisor nudges managers to recognize employees at strategic moments. In addition to timely recognition, the tool provides managers tips derived from the best practices of high-performing global companies. It also provides actionable data based on key metrics that define active participation and appropriate recognition activities and budget utilization.
BIW collaborates with IBM Watson Analytics to further enhance the user experience within our recognition solutions. This approach empowers companies to make recognition decisions based on extensive data – not just on a gut feeling – to enhance employee engagement, deliver on their employee value proposition, improve individual performance and retain their best talent for years to come.
