Employee Recognition and Rewards

Let’s build a recognition strategy that motivates, rewards, excites, and drives the performance of your employees. 

Employee Engagement: Unlocking your employee's potential.

Well-designed recognition and rewards programs translate into employee engagement, loyalty, and productivity. But it’s not about giving out cash or the typical “employee-of-the-month” plaques. It’s about aligning your day to day activities and building a culture of recognition. It’s about making employee recognition a central part of your business strategy.

Recognition and rewards should be aligned with your strategy and drive your employee engagement program. They should identify and reinforce behaviours that are in line with your organization’s core values. It’s the opportunity to say — both to the recipient and to those around them — “This is who we are. This is what we want from our team.”

At BI WORLDWIDE, we're a leader in global employee recognition programs in Canada. We know that specific, timely recognition is the most effective way to acknowledge employees’ accomplishments. We also know recognition is reciprocal, how you treat your employees will come back to you — for better or for worse.

We know there are keys to a successful recognition program:

  • First and foremost: Engage managers. Educate them on the importance of recognition and how to effectively recognize employees.
  • Start at the top communicating clearly defined expectations from the beginning. This message must be reinforced by all levels of management.
  • Your values should be the building block for behaviours you recognize.
  • Determine specific rewards and recognition strategies that are “glocal” – can be applied globally, taking into account local customs and values.
  • Measure, measure, and measure again. Think your recognition program isn’t quantifiable? Think again. Accurate, ongoing measurement will keep your program front of mind — and will prove it’s truly making an impact.

We have executed and managed rewards and recognition programs around the globe and across every industry.

One-size does not fit all. We’ll partner with you to understand what a recognition program might look like for your company, including which rewards to offer that will be most meaningful for the people that make up your organization. We offer a vast selection of rewards featuring a mix of brand merchandise, lifestyle, symbolic and travel awards – aspirational items that are compelling and motivating to a range of generations and preferences.

We manage award fulfillment for participants in more than 120 countries through catalogues specific to each location. Our difference: local fulfillment. This, combined with our own supply chain, eliminates unnecessary “middlemen” expenditures. It also enables us to make sure the awards we’re offering are culturally relevant to your recipients.
