Experts recommend considering these trends when updating rewards and recognition programs:

  • Companies should focus more on personalized rewards — what may appeal to one employee won’t appeal to the next.
  • Frequency of rewards and recognition also is key. Celebrate often.
  • Make rewards and recognition public. Research shows that public recognition through a variety of communication channels including email, newsletter, awards and announcements drives employee engagement even among those who aren’t recognized. It encourages them to strive for recognition.

It took some time and involved lots of learning. While I'm not called Doctor, I am recognized as an expert in my field of marketing - Advertising Specialties.

Effective messaging on paper, promotional product and apparel can be tricky at times, but when done right, can achieve marketing goals and make events memorable.

Mostly I have fun when we collaborate and hit our goals together. Who doesn't enjoy a project done well?
