Published: May 14, 2013

LEXINGTON, Ky. (May 14, 2013) — Approximately 40 of Kentucky’s most innovative employers met May 8-9 at the University of Kentucky’s Hilary J. Boone Center at the 11th semiannual Roundtable meeting sponsored by UK's Institute for Workplace Innovation (iwin). This year’s theme, “Rewards & Recognition: Beyond the Dollar $ign,” was highlighted by nationally recognized researchers and practitioners to help attendees address and resolve workplace issues.

 

The semiannual meeting brings together some of Kentucky’s best employers to learn cutting edge practices, network with each other, as well as highlight iwin partners’ achievements.

 

The event kicked off as Lee Todd, former UK president, presented his namesake award, the Dr. Lee T. Todd, Jr. Bridging the Gap Between Workplace Research and Practice Award, to Fazoli’s Restaurants. Winners of this annual award enjoy a complimentary membership to the Roundtable for one year.

 

“We find that employers who engage in this face-to-face meeting come away with proven workplace practices that will help strengthen their organizations,” said Lisa Williams, acting co-executive director of iwin.

 

Attendees enjoyed a variety of speakers, including keynote speaker, Christine Porath of Georgetown University, who educated attendees on the benefits of rewarding and recognizing their employees. Ritu Furlan, a partner at Ernst & Young shared how to integrate flexibility into a company’s culture, while John Randolph offered insight on the new field of neuroleadership. A Roundtable favorite, “Speed Geeking,” offered partners the chance to learn from each other about what attracts, engages, and retains talent in their own organizations.  Lt. Governor Jerry Abramson closed the meeting with insight on how his 20 years of public service have been filled with rewards and recognition beyond the dollar sign.

 

The next Roundtable meeting will be held October 9-10, 2013, Brown-Forman in Louisville.

  

Rose Douglass, executive vice president and director of Human Resources of Central Bank, said “iwin provides something new and exciting at each Roundtable.  It’s always something tangible that I can take back to the office and implement to engage our employees and help boost the bottom line.”
