RPI Webinar: Strategies for Recognizing Leaders and Generalists

October 27, 2022 @ 11:00 am CDT / 12:00 pm EDT

Join thought leaders from the O.C. Tanner Institute to explore in-depth insights from the recently released 2023 Global Culture Report.

As the business landscape adjusts to new models of work and continued workplace changes, having a strong workplace community is more important than ever. Evolving organizations that prioritize employee belonging and connection will be ideally positioned to leverage their talent and lead out on industry-changing innovation.  
Daniel Patterson and Dr. Cristen Dalessandro of the O.C. Tanner Institute share their insights on how organizations can support two often-overlooked players central to the healthy workplace community: modern leaders and generalist employees. Research reveals that the evolving demands on leaders are leaving mentors and managers stressed and underappreciated. 
Generalists, those employees with diverse skillsets and interdisciplinary thinking, are also feeling the weight of feeling unsupported and unrecognized for their role in helping organizations navigate uncertainty in the workplace.

In this Global Culture Report deep-dive webinar you will:

  • Explore data and perspectives from more than 40,000 employees and leaders worldwide
  • Discover how integrated recognition can elevate performance and wellbeing for all employees, including leaders
  • Learn practical strategies for retaining and growing the talent central to building a strong workplace community
