Ideas Happen: Ten New Resources to Help with Your Recognition Goals!
From time to time, we like to check in with our customers to make sure we're meeting, and, with some hope, exceeding your needs. Last fall, we conducted a survey of a large pool of our loyal fans—and, it turns out, there's a lot more we could be doing!

When it came to the pain points section, we started to see some trends in your responses. Like, "I love your products, but I don't know what I'd do with them." Or, "My recognition program is failing because it's hard to treat my team fairly." Or, "I believe in the importance of employee recognition, but I can't get my managers or company leadership on board." Well, what good are we as experts if we can't help you solve these issues?

We listened to your wishes and conjured up the Idea Genie—a benevolent being who wears many hats and lives to serve your most troubling workplace needs.
