Rideau Inc. adds the workplace thought leaders Adrian Gostick and Chester Elton to its suite of Vistance workforce solutions

MONTREAL, Feb. 23, 2017 /CNW Telbec/ - Rideau Inc., a world leader in employee recognition and workforce analytic solutions, continues to be on the forefront of engagement and organizational management strategies by licensing content from two of the industry's top workforce thought leaders and culture improvement experts, Adrian Gostick and Chester Elton.

"We are very proud to add this new dimension of thought leadership to our Rideau family of services and solutions," says Rideau's CEO, Peter W. Hart. "Adrian and Chester's expertise in workforce motivation and engagement is second to none in the industry and we are extremely excited to work with them."

The new agreement will allow Rideau to license and incorporate the duo's heavily researched and widely respected work into the company's existing leadership training and educational materials. "I've known them both for many years, and collaborating with Adrian and Chester in this way is such a natural fit. I wonder why we hadn't thought of it sooner! I am a fan of their work and have read all of their books and industry papers. We think like they do, and we both understand the importance the employee relationship has to the success of business today," says Hart.

The announcement of Gostick and Elton's work with Rideau coincides with Rideau's new rebranding and launch of their consumer website. "The timing could not be more perfect," says Rideau's Chief Marketing Officer, Jennifer Lumba. "We are constantly looking for ways to innovate the human capital landscape and add real value to our client relationships. The subject matter expertise that Adrian and Chester bring to the Vistance Prescriptive Learning Solution allows our clients a new depth of training in employee engagement."

Rideau's Vistance RQ Score™ is the IQ score for human capital strategy.

"Recognition, when done correctly, motivates employees and helps create a culture of engagement that drives business results," says Gostick. "A lot of managers simply do not know how to effectively motivate their employees. Many do not realize that they hold the power to create a culture that is conducive to high performance – and that's where we come in."

Elton continues, "Peter and the team at Rideau understand that managers are the key to employee satisfaction and engagement. They also understand that not everyone is born knowing how to effectively communicate and give meaningful recognition to their employees. We are excited to partner with Rideau and add to their diversity of thought leadership. It's a win-win for everyone."

To help kick off the new joint venture, Rideau Inc. will be hosting a series of meetings featuring Adrian Gostick and Chester Elton in various cities across North America. Contact Tommy Lee Hayes-Brown at TommyLee@Rideau.com for more information.
