Challenges of Global Programs
In today’s global economy, it’s more important than ever that those organizations take steps to engage their employees. The competition in the marketplace for top employees is just as fierce for that of products and services. Award programs designed to engage and recognize employees have begun to extend beyond their domestic walls and are opening up to their organization’s entire global workforce. But the question is, how?
Many US-based multinational organizations have recognition programs in place to award their US employees but they do not extend this program to their employees located outside of the US. That’s like throwing a celebration party, and not inviting everyone.
Another common practice in global companies is treating your international program as simply an extension of your domestic program. This is a big no-no when it comes to employee recognition because it can lead to many problems such as; lack of local relevancy, ineffective award design, high shipping costs, and border hold-ups and duties (just to name a few).
Other companies simply let their other region or country heads manage a program at their own discretion. This too can be a messy situation as costs can balloon due to a decentralized budget management system. Mixed messages often occur as each branch takes their own approach and overall organizational goals are not met. Logistically speaking, this also becomes problematic as multiple suppliers directly increase program management costs as well as day-to-day administration.
Benefits of Partnering with a Global Recognition Company
Consistency: One message, one process, one organization.
Working with a single global supplier is the only realistic way to achieve such consistency and maintain local relevancy. Program goals and budgets can be aligned while specifically targeting the needs of your organization’s entire employee base.
