The staff of CUNA's Credit Union Magazine and News Now are teaming up to bring you comprehensive, onsite coverage of the 2013 America's Credit Union Conference (ACUC) now underway in New York City.

While nothing can replace the value of actually being there, CUNA's coverage will help "take you there" with team reporting . Also, CUNAVerse blog postings and a "Twitterfall" at the CUNA exhibit booth to coordinate message delivery will allow conference attendees and those not attending to catch all the action.

Both News Now and Credit Union Magazine websites will feature a cooperative slideshow of keynoters, breakout sessions, and person-on-the-street interviews. Readers also can follow events through Twitter on the News Now LiveWire and at Credit Union Magazine.

Readers will learn about important issues, such as emerging markets, social media and financial institutions, the branch of the future, and cyber security. CUNA also is arranging some high-profile live events in New York City that will promote the credit union movement as part of Unite for Good. Events include a Wednesday morning visit by attendees to NBC's Today Show to spread the word about credit unions.

Be sure to visit News Now and Credit Union Magazine frequently this week to keep up with all the ACUC action in New York City.

Great article! Unfortunately, most employees don’t feel valued or appreciated by their supervisors or employers. In fact, research has shown that the predominant reason team members quit their jobs is because they don’t feel valued. This is in spite of the fact that employee recognition programs have proliferated in the workplace – over 90% of all organizations in the U.S. has some form of employee recognition activities in place. But most employee recognition programs are viewed with skepticism and cynicism – because they aren’t viewed as being genuine in their communication of appreciation. Getting the “employee of the month” award, receiving a certificate of recognition, or a “Way to go, team!” email just don’t get the job done. How do you communicate authentic appreciation? We have found people have different ways that they want to be shown appreciation, and if you don’t communicate in the language of appreciation important to them, you essentially “miss the mark”. Additionally, employees need to receive recognition more than once a year at their performance review. Otherwise, they view the praise as “going through the motions”. A third component of authentic appreciation is that the communication has to be about them personally – not the department, not their group, but something they did. Finally, they have to believe that you mean what you say. How you treat them has to match the words you use. If you are not sure how your team members want to be shown appreciation, the Motivating By Appreciation Inventory (www.appreciationatwork.com/assess) will identify the language of appreciation and specific actions preferred by each employee. You then can create a group profile for your team, so everyone knows how to encourage one another. Remember, employees want to know that they are valued for what they contribute to the success of the organization. And communicating authentic appreciation in the ways they desire it can make the difference between keeping your quality team members or having a negative work environment that everyone wants to leave.
