AHRI-national-convention-2019

5 min read

This week, Reward Gateway attended AHRI's National Convention with thousands of HR professionals. I had the opportunity to talk to dozens of HR innovators who are looking for ways to be challenge the status quo and drive cultural change within their organisations using diverse employee benefits, strategic reward and recognition, and real-time, relevant communications and surveys. People had a chance to learn from our Global SVP Consultancy, Kylie Green, about what it takes to be a successful and impactful changemaker.

Attendees shared with us their biggest challenges and top employee engagement priorities for 2020, and we’re excited to bring you those results.

Take a look at our infographic for more of the highlights from our live survey, where visitors placed their vote at our stand to signify what their biggest priority is:

Organisations have an opportunity to harness technology to not only increase the visibility of our leadership teams, but improve how leaders recognise employees and push the boundaries to increase open and honest communication across the organisation.

The conversations also highlighted opportunities to build a strong Employee Value Proposition (EVP) by supporting different aspects of employee wellbeing, including physical, social, mental and financial aspects of their health. 

Kylie makes the case for change

During her talk, Kylie provided some inspiring examples of HR changemakers who are turning the tide and doing their best to embrace and humanise technology and deliver a world-class and engaging employee experience in different industries.

A perfect example of this is PYBAR Mining Services, who conference delegates got to know during a mid-afternoon protein ball hit!

If you missed out, don’t worry, we’ll have plenty of give-aways (and employee engagement advice!) when we see you at our next event. In the meantime, here are a few of our favourite moments from the three-day conference. Like when everyone came over to grab a copy of Build It: The Rebel Playbook for World-Class Employee Engagement.
