BIW is announcing a breakthrough in employee recognition technology with the release of two recognition tools for managers: Onboarding Advisor and Recognition Advisor. These mobile responsive design solutions guide managers on how and when to provide recognition that is more meaningful to employees, from their first day on the job and beyond.
Onboarding Advisor is designed to get employees off on the right foot from day one by shortening learning curves, optimizing job satisfaction, and immersing employees in the company’s culture.
In addition to ramping up productivity for the new employee, the Onboarding Advisor interacts with managers to ensure they’re providing appropriate acknowledgement and recognition for completed onboarding tasks. BIW created this unique, two-way solution because the successful onboarding of new employees is critical in today’s business climate as companies are in tight competition to gain and retain the right talent.
Recognition Advisor uses data and behavioural science to help managers pinpoint the precise point in time at which recognition will have the most impact on an individual employee’s performance. Based on each employee’s personal data and recognition history, the Recognition Advisor nudges managers to recognize employees at strategic moments. In addition to timely recognition, the tool provides managers tips derived from the best practices of high-performing global companies. It also provides actionable data based on key metrics that define active participation and appropriate recognition activities and budget utilization.
To further enhance the user experience within our recognition solutions, BIW has partnered with IBM Watson Analytics so our customers can enhance the visibility and insights of key employee recognition data. This allows us to easily explore correlations between program engagement and key business outcomes.
