I’m very pleased with our latest achievement as a company – being listed among the 2008 Inc. 500 fastest growing private companies in the U.S.
Jane Berentson, editor of Inc., commented, “If you want to find out which companies are going to change the world, look at the Inc. 500. These are the most innovative, dynamic, fast-growing companies in the nation – the ones coming up with solutions to some of our knottiest problems, creating systems that let us conduct business faster and easier, and manufacturing products we soon discover we can’t live without.”
One of the “knottiest problems” in today’s fearful economic climate is helping employees stay motivated and focused on achieving company objectives. Our continued success in this ailing economy is due in part to our customers realizing the role strategic recognition plays. With just a small, well-governed investment in recognition programs for their people, company leadership can reap dramatic benefits in performance and achievement. Many companies having to do more with fewer resources, are putting strategic recognition to work for them.
Our listing is thanks to the hard work of all of our people – from product development creating an easy-to-use and fun platform for employee recognition to our rewards network developers securing relationships with nearly 3,000 desirable merchants around the world for truly global recognition capabilities to sales and marketing effectively communicating the value of achieving a global strategic recognition ambition to our Global 2000 customers. I thank all of our people for their efforts that put us on the Inc. 500!
