It’s all about people! As VP, Recognition for CSI STARS, I have the best job in the world writing and talking about ways we can make the world and workplace a more positive place. For the past 25 years I’ve been fortunate to work with large established organizations and new start-ups building from the ground up. What I've learned is that business success is directly related to leaders who recognize and nurture talent, inspiring others to reach their potential. I strongly believe all expressions of thanks, no matter how small, when multiplied by many will transform lives and cultures. The power of appreciation is one of the most underutilized tools in business and a secret to unlocking a culture that attracts, engages and retains your most valuable asset… people. My job is to provide stories, tools and tips to help organizations lead positive change and realize successful outcomes. Lori has an MBA, is a Certified Recognition Professional (CRP) and member of the GOSHRM blog squad. Prior to joining CSI STARS, she was in Communications and HR roles with Mercer Human Resource Consulting, Manager Client Services at Youthography, Canada's first youth market research consultancy and led people and PR initiatives for a variety of start ups in the technology, healthcare, automotive and toy industry.
