WorldatWork Article explores how Strategic Recognition Boosts Engagement at Gables Residential
WORKPROUD, a recognized leader in the design and development of innovative employee recognition programs, is featured in a new WorldatWork article with Gables Residential, a private apartment management organization that oversees approximately 35,000 apartment homes. Gables was featured in WorldatWork’s WorkSpan Magazine, a leading publication on innovative HR strategies and insights, which explores how Gable’s associate reward and recognition program delivers quantifiable results and benefits. According to Gallup, disengaged employees cost companies between $450 and $550 billion a year. Businesses with higher associate engagement scores lead to lower turnover, higher profitability, increased customer acquisition, retention rates, and more. The WorkProud technology and change management strategy increased Gable’s participation and integrated the program into their company culture.

“At the heart of any business or leadership effort is one phrase: behavior change. Whether the interactions involve employees, or B2B partners, or customers, the end goal is to make it easier for others to perform at their best by helping them feel appreciated and validated”
Philip Altschuler, Gables’ Senior Vice President of Human Resources and Learning & Development says, “The biggest factor has been the culture shift from ‘managers looking for what’s wrong’ to a focus on “looking for opportunities to recognize and reward positive contributions” and helping build a culture of appreciation (and engagement) where associates can be proud of their work and proud of working at Gables.”
