Awards Network incentive program solutions are designed to lower hiring, operational and healthcare costs while maximizing employee motivation and retention. By providing brand name merchandise and expert recognition and incentive program advice to clients, Awards Network is delivering a valuable strategy given the current recession.

"Human Resource Professionals are looking to incentive programs in order to achieve cost reduction in the short term and employee retention in the long term," states Bob McDowell, Director of Sales at Awards Network. "By targeting employees with health and wellness incentives, recognition awards, mentoring incentives and telecommuter award opportunities, organizations are taking a modern approach to reducing costs amid the recession without sacrificing long term organizational performance."

McDowell continues, "Our expert account managers are partnered with clients to align business objectives with the incentive program goals. Account managers advise clients on the variety of incentive program solutions being utilized in today's workplace and work to ensure each employee incentive program is reaching its full potential."

Contemporary employee incentive programs tend to include wellness incentives, employee recognition events, mentoring incentives and telecommuter awards. These kinds of incentives allow companies to reduce healthcare costs, increase employee motivation, successfully transition/build a team and provide flexible work situations-all of which impact the organization's cost structure and ability to attract and retain employees."

Awards Network incentive programs offer participants a variety of corporate gifts that will appeal to all employee demographics. Depending on employee access and familiarity with computers, clients have the option of having a completely online incentive program, a paper-based solution or a hybrid of both.

"Incentive program supplements allow our clients to utilize multimedia in order to communicate reward program goals and progress," McDowell explains. "Company newsletters, emails, posters, statements and other media are consistently branded, keep employees informed and make the incentive program relevant to employees."

Managers are learning how to work within the new economy by leveraging the power of employee incentives to reduce costs and boost performance. "Putting the power of employee recognition and the motivational aspect of lifestyle award merchandise to work for clients," McDowell acknowledges, "has been our focus for over 50 years. The 2009 recession presents a unique opportunity for companies to rethink the way employee incentives can assist an organization in both the short and long term."
