Calgary, AB and Toronto, ON (November 16, 2011) - Kudos Inc. (Kudos) was a partner at the Globe & Mail Small Business Summit 2011, sponsoring the discussion on the challenges of hiring and engaging staff in today’s marketplace.
Over 350 Canadian small business owners and devoted entrepreneurs descended on the MaRS Discovery District for a full day of sessions and networking opportunities to learn about the newest trends and best practices for growing and managing their businesses. Kudos demonstrated how their Corporate Social Network, with their innovative recognition platform, can help organizations engage a multi-generational work force and facilitate mentoring, coaching and knowledge sharing between Boomers, Generation X and Generation Y.
“At times it seems that these cohort groups could not be more different in their work habits, attitudes, communication preferences and work styles,” said Tom Short, Kudos Co-founder. “Stuck in the middle is Generation X. The one thing they are all attracted to is organizations with a great reputation for caring about their team.”
Hiring and engaging the right team is a complex process that requires understanding of a company’s corporate values, skill requirements, goals and compensation strategy. Recruiting and retention has never been more difficult with such a divergent workforce.
“Kudos creates connections between team members with messages of appreciation,” commented Muni Boga, Kudos Co-founder. “Kudos is social, transparent and easy to use, which allows everyone to be a part of building a greater corporate culture.”
Kudos launched their innovative employee engagement system in early October and has since caught the attention of organizations across North America looking to improve their employee recognition systems.
Kudos is a social employee engagement platform designed to embrace the power of social networks, providing meaningful recognition and feedback in real time. Kudos is a simple yet powerful system that helps organizations connect with their teams and drive performance with authentic engagement. Kudos – Thank Different™.
