How to attract, motivate and retain the best remote talent

This article was produced in partnership with Reward Gateway.

In this evolving hybrid world, maintaining employee engagement remains the biggest issue facing HR leaders today. 

But DataBank, a provider of enterprise-class data center, cloud and interconnection services, has developed a solution. As the Dallas-based firm planned for massive growth during the COVID-19 pandemic, it embarked on a journey to improve employee engagement through three pivotal ways: defining who it wanted to be, developing a clear strategy and selecting a partner to build a consistent culture of recognition.

Now, company executives are going to walk you through their evolution first-hand, providing valuable insights and inspiration on how your organization can build an authentic culture of recognition.

DataBank and its partner Reward Gateway will be hosting a free webinar on Nov. 14 at 1 p.m. EST/ 10 a.m. PST.

Join Alex Powell, director of client cultural insights at Reward Gateway, for a conversation with JP Laqueur, senior vice president of marketing, and Paul Myott, vice president of organizational effectiveness and internal communications at DataBank, as they share expert tips on how your engagement strategy can continue to evolve as your company grows and faces the pressures of the current talent market. 

“If we’re aligned and appreciated – even in the midst of change – we’ll be more productive, creative, innovative and more likely to stay,” Powell told HRD. For more than 20 years, she has helped HR and business leaders implement strategies that drive true culture change.

“While we all may feel overwhelmed during times of stress and change, if we help people enjoy what they do every day, that will support engagement despite the changes,” Powell says, “and that’s something HR teams have always been focused on. We’re just now moving into having more intentional people strategies that are a focus for the whole leadership team.”

During the webinar, you’ll learn why getting key stakeholder buy-in is critical for cultural transformation, how technology enables recognition at all levels of the organization, how to maintain a focus on recognition culture during periods of growth and much more.
