Employee recognition is more than an HR program—it has a profound impact on an organization’s workplaceculture and bottom line.

• 53% more likely to have highly engaged employees
• 29% more likely to have employees innovating and performing great work
• 27% more likely to have increased in revenuelast year
• 25% more likely to have growth in team size in the last year1
By creating a great workplace culture employees want to engage with, you’ll see an improvement in business results. Employee recognition touches every aspect of your company culture and your employee experience—from recruiting, to engagement, productivity, innovation, and retention.
Business evolution and technology advancements during the last decade have driven a sea change in the way data centers are funded, organized, and managed. Enterprises are now focusing on a profound digital transformation which is a continuous adjustment of technology management resources to deliver business results, guided by rapid review of desired outcomes related to end clients, resources, and budget constraints. These IT transitions are very much part of the competitive landscape, and executed correctly, they become competitive differentiators and enable bottom line growth. These outcomes are driving data centers to virtualization, service-oriented architectures, increased cybersecurity, “big data,” and “cloud,” to name a few of the key factors. This is completely rethinking and retooling the way enterprises handle the applications, data, security, and access that constitute their critical IT resources. In essence, cloud is the new IT.

Modern business-to-business (B2B) buyers have unprecedented access to information to support their buying process and, as a result, have become more self-reliant in the evaluation process. This has made B2B sellers’ jobs harder; not only do they have less control in earlier stages of the sales cycle, but they have to work harder to connect and engage with buyers, turning prospects into customers. Sales technologies have helped modernize how sellers and sales leaders manage their pipelines and execute contracts, but technology gaps around engagement persist, making it difficult for sellers to keep pace with, connect with, and support buyer engagement. The common outcome: Sellers become slaves to their CRM systems, focused more on updating reports and logging their activities than they are in driving business results.
