The difference in recognition today is that it is no longer restricted to a top down process; we are expanding the scope of relationships to promote collaboration, teamwork and camaraderie

While retaining exclusive rights to the PollStream solution within the recognition field, Rideau is adding a new dimension to the incentive industry. The alliance will allow Rideau to leverage its online recognition platform with PollStream's social networking tools to further facilitate employee relationships and increase employee engagement, retention and productivity.
"Rideau's mission is to get employees engaged and motivated through strengthening relationships. PollStream's networking systems let us use a proven successful social phenomenon to keep the channel of communication between employees open and active," said Lonn Shulkin, VP Sales and Marketing of Rideau.
Employee communication and relationships is paramount to instilling a true sense of pride in employees' work and company. According to a Gallup study, groups who claim to have a best friend at work have customers who rate them "5% to 10% higher than those of impersonal or acrimonious groups, explaining the difference between success and failure in many organizations."
When employees have strong relationships within the company, their success becomes synonymous to the company's.
PollStream's tools act as the social lubricant needed to increase the incidences of peer-to-peer as well as employee to manager recognition. Social networking encourages the creation of new links between staff through a live interactive platform producing a true sense of community for all employees. An increase in the sense of community translates to an increase in employee engagement and productivity.
The most exciting addition to Rideau's deliverables is PollStream's social networking tool, the Hive. The Hive is an interactive community of employee recognition where workers share accomplishments, activities and team successes. Other valuable PollStream solutions include instant polling, comment engines and a knowledge sharing marketplace which all facilitate the building of real social capital, furthering corporate culture and contributing to company teambuilding, engagement and productivity.
"The difference in recognition today is that it is no longer restricted to a top down process; we are expanding the scope of relationships to promote collaboration, teamwork and camaraderie," said Steven Green President of PollStream.
Rideau and PollStream's new partnership will continue to enhance client services and both parties are committed to finding new innovative ways in which to strengthen corporate communities and cultures.
