St Louis, MO, November 22, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Without a doubt, businesses during these difficult times are cutting costs and even employee benefits. However, employee recognition is one employee benefit not on the block. RBD (Recognition by Design) creates custom awards to recognize employees the proper way. It is time to stop buying off-the-shelf awards and help employees recognize their significant role in your company with unique plaques and trophies.
RBD, a Saint Louis, MO supplier of Employee Recognition services and products is enthusiastically responding to an increased demand for meaningful recognition, awards, and strategies. It would appear that businesses and organizations across the country are quickly discovering the power of communicating meaningful and sincere individual recognition. The power of informing valued employees of their unique contributions is the second most significant motivator to increase productivity and positive behavior.
RBD announced today that in recognition of the significant increase in the demand for Individual Awards (i.e. trophies) for “one up” events and peer to peer recognition, it will begin aggressively marketing its unique capabilities of producing “One-Up” custom awards.
RBD has gained its reputation creating custom awards for employee recognition programs as an alternative to off the shelf products. RBD’s awards are custom designed to reflect the culture of an organization and the purpose of the award. Ned Durham, Director of Business Development, has been providing corporations and organizations with custom and traditional awards since 1998. RBD found a unique niche in the market by proving that custom awards can be competitive with off the self products. Durham says, "While it is no secret that custom awards are far more meaningful to employees, most companies buy off the shelf plaques, trophies, and crystal to save time. As a result, their expression of personal appreciation for an employee’s unique behavior with an off the shelf product creates a subtle but damaging contradiction. While employees appreciate being singled out for recognition, the 'plaque' becomes just a gesture actually denigrating the more important message of appreciation."
RBD’s focus has always been to provide recognition awards that reflect the organization’s culture and the value of the employee. To stay competitive with off the shelf awards, RBD has developed a highly efficient process which has eliminated up to 50% of the cost of producing a custom product. Leveraging on 12 years of experience in creating custom awards and decorating off the shelf trophies, crystal, and plaques has allowed RBD to expand its services to ONE UP Awards, custom or off the shelf.
RBD plans to begin marketing their new initiative in Saint Louis, Missouri, and then to the Midwest region next month.
