Share Article

To help companies show appreciation for employees, volunteers and fans, the Goody Awards will now provide Pay Good Forward Services to brands.

The Goody Awards announces a new Pay Good Forward movement and services for brands to build recognition programs, custom awards and cause marketing campaigns ( To kick off the program, Net Impact Los Angeles Chapter is recognizing their volunteers with a special recognition program that has been customized to honor their leaders.

Goody Awards Founder Liz H Kelly shared, “We want to make it easy, cool and engaging to recognize good for both individuals and brands.” Anyone can now tweet Goody Awards nominations 24x7 to recognize everyday heroes, and this new Pay Good Forward program is designed to take it to the next level by including brands.

A recent 10-year, 100,000 person study conducted by The O.C. Tanner Institute, showed, “79% of employees who quit their jobs cite a lack of appreciation as a key reason for leaving,” which shows is a huge need for more companies to recognize good.

For this launch, Net Impact Los Angeles Chapter is recognizing their volunteers with a special recognition program that includes Hero Goody Award tags for their leadership team, a Team Goody Awards for these leaders and their Advisory Board, and a Special Recognition Hero Goody Award for one of their strategic advisors, Gayle Northrop. These leaders have not only inspired good thru the Net Impact Los Angeles community as the local business chapter, the group partnered with local Net Impact college chapters, businesses and the corporate office in San Francisco (who manages 280+ chapters and 22,000+ members worldwide) – and are now in the top 3 finalists for Net Impact Chapter of the Year.

To inspire positive change by recognizing good, the Goody Awards encourages everyone to take the Pay Good Forward pledge by tweeting or posting on Facebook ---> I @Username promise to #PayGoodForward everyday by recognizing good at least 1x/day via Thx, Text, or Tweet @GoodyAwards.

As part of the Pay Good Forward Services for Brands, the Goody Awards will work with corporations and organizations to help them recognize employees, volunteers and fans for their invaluable contributions through consulting services, similar to recognition programs they have helped design for corporations such as T. Rowe Price, Sprint PCS and Fox Interactive Media/MySpace.

And because this is a Pay Good Forward program, each Net Impact Los Angeles leader will receive 2 Hero Goody Award tags so that they can also recognize someone doing good – and now anyone who buys a Hero Goody Award tag will receive 2 for the price of 1 to encourage this Pay Good Forward movement.
