Madison’s Presentation to SHRM Members Scores High

New York, NY. September 1, 2011 — Mike Ryan, Senior Vice President of Marketing & Strategy for Madison Performance Group, recently conducted a webinar on behalf of the Society for Human Resource Management’s (SHRM) membership entitled: “How HR Leaders Can Expand Their Recognition Know How”.

The presentation was attended by 443 members live and another 361 listened in during various rebroadcasts. The discussion was very well received and scored extremely high in attendee evaluations; with 99.2% of the participants surveyed rating the information as important while 94.7% sayid they would recommend the webcast to a colleague. “That last number represents the most important question we ask and these numbers are consistent with our best presentations,” said Mike Frost Senior manager at SHRM. “The audience agrees with me. This was a great presentation by Mr. Ryan.”

Ryan credits the topic, "Progressive firms know that it is the attitudes and actions of their people—the real links in the value chain—that create a distinct competitive advantage. And within the c-suite that thought process has picked up significant momentum. To serve their fellow executives and to optimize limited funds, the most progressive HR leaders are reexamining emerging opinions, research and best practices as they seek to expand recognition’s potential role as a corporate resource. This webinar provided that kind of useful insight.”
