Montreal, Quebec and New York, New York (PRWEB) April 28, 2006
Rideau Recognition Solutions, Inc., North America's leading provider of Web-based incentive management programs, today announced that it has acquired the Recognition Management Institute, a consulting organization specializing in training managers how to recognize and retain top employees. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The Recognition Management Institute (RMI), which is based in London, Ontario, has worked with dozens of firms, employing innovative employee recognition techniques to improve business results. Its clients have included Bell Canada, 3M, and the Canadian government, among others. Founder Roy Saunderson is also an accomplished speaker and author of the book How to Focus on Success! He will remain president of RMI and act as a consultant for Rideau clients.
"Roy is a visionary when it comes to recognition," said Rideau CEO Peter Hart. "His time-tested methods for engaging managers have helped some of the world's finest global firms drastically improve their recognition and retention practices. We're thrilled to have him on our team."
"Rideau was preaching employee recognition decades before it became popular. The philosophies of our two organizations appear perfectly aligned. That's why this deal is a natural fit," said Saunderson. "But, more importantly, we're coming together at a critical time -- when organizations are starved for talent. The opportunity exists to show these firms a better path -- a path that's best paved through service to employees, not the other way around. I believe we'll be able to help many organizations give “real recognition” to their employees."
Rideau enhances all of the relationships that impact business performance through a comprehensive suite of rewards and recognition products. Rideau's offerings include performance awards that reinforce excellent work habits and celebrate achievement and service awards that commemorate loyalty. It's a unique, bundled approach that has caught on among many of the Fortune 500 and leading HRO providers. For example, Ceridian last year became the first to include employee recognition with traditional HR services by partnering with Rideau. From RBC Financial Group to FedEx and from Lucent Technologies to Bell Canada, global businesses of all sizes use Rideau's rewards and recognition solutions to reduce turnover and engender loyalty.
