    Session: Communications Drive the Value of Rewards

    When: June 26th, 11:45 am to 1 pm Speaker: Glenn Bonci, Managing Partner of the HR Creative Group 

    You invest a lot in your rewards programs, and they do a lot of heavy lifting. They attract and retain, inspire, drive productivity, boost morale and goodwill, and enhance employee health and well-being. The perceptions of your programs are largely driven by communications. Ideally, they should match or exceed the quality of your programs to ensure the right image and perceptions of your rewards programs are realized. And to ensure that all the different parts are known, used, and appreciated.

    In this session, we’ll explore creative ways to simplify the message, have fun, attract attention, and increase awareness of the real value you offer.

    With 39 years of experience working with HR departments to help them connect with employees on a multitude of issues, Glen works with companies of any size in the U.S. to create and deliver employee communication strategies. 

    Glenn is driven by an obsession with simplicity, distilling content to meaningful and understandable messages for employees that result in the desired change.

    He works with his clients to determine specific and measurable goals for every project, often utilizing surveys and focus groups to measure employee perspectives, understand the audience, and refine strategy. He then works with his team of writers, designers, animators, and web developers to make the communications come alive.

    Every client is different. Every approach is different. But some things remain constant: Great writing combined with great design yields superior results. As long as you keep it simple.
