Recognize the potential in people.

Use our recognition programs to highlight the unique capabilities, contributions and accomplishments of your team, and encourage them to achieve peak performance.

Empower your employees

Your staff is looking for connection and purpose. We use behavioral and data science to provide both. Our programs and technology can give your team the tools they need to connect with coworkers, support business success and form the bonds that build your brand.

Working together, we can:

  • Highlight employee efforts that create value
  • Empower staff members to reach their full potential
  • Connect employee ideals with your brand vision
  • Create a company culture that attracts top talent
  • Acknowledge and support productivity

Turn recognition into results.

Our approach eliminates the need for trial and error by using behavioral science and engagement strategies that are tried and true. When you partner with us, we use proven principles and activations that help you accurately predict and shape employee performance. See some of the behavioral science rules behind our recognition strategies:

  • Shared Identity

    Shared identity connects the employee experience to your company’s purpose and values, instilling a sense of belonging and inspiring commitment and support.

  • Social Rewards

    Social rewards deliver on the human desire for connections with others, activating positive emotions in the brain in the same way a cash gift would.

  • Progress Feedback

    Progress feedback communicates progress on meaningful work, contributing to satisfaction and maintaining momentum.

It’s a matter of dollars and sense.

In an industry embracing digital engagement, most customer relationships are built at the branch level by a motivated and committed staff.
