St. Paul, MN (PRWEB) November 16, 2006
http://www.crystal-d.com -- Crystal D, a leading supplier of corporate recognition awards to the promotional products industry, announced that four employees have passed two of the four required courses to receive the National Association for Employee Recognition (NAER) Certified Recognition Professional (CRP) designation.
Chuck Dahlgren, president; Laura Jendersee, marketing manager; Debbe Kjellsen, business development, and Bridget Dahlgren, business development, passed the first two courses required to become Certified Recognition Professionals. The courses, Structuring Recognition Programs For Success and Strategic Planning and Measurement, focus on the importance of a recognition strategy within an organization and how to build, implement and measure an employee recognition program.
"NAER's Certified Recognition Professional courses are integral to the industry," says Dahlgren. "Crystal D is the first supplier in the industry to work towards this designation. This designation will help us educate our customers on employee recognition, from strategy to measurement. Now we'll be able to help our customers assist their clients. We are proud to be members of NAER and are looking forward to finishing two more courses in April."
The NAER CRP designation is made of four facilitator-led courses. Certified Recognition Professionals have practical, strategic and performance-enhancing knowledge that will add value to an organization's recognition program. The next courses in the curriculum will be offered in Savannah, Georgia, as part of the NAER 10th Annual Conference.
The National Association For Employee Recognition is dedicated to the enhancement of employee performance through recognition, including its strategies and related initiatives. The association provides a forum for information and best practices sharing as well as education to foster the use, excitement, effectiveness and enthusiasm of recognition.
