Grass Roots America Continues to Enhance Global Options Rewards Offering

Leading the Way With Coverage Spanning 120 Countries With Localized Services

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - August 31, 2009) - Grass Roots America, the leading provider of global performance improvement solutions for employee, channel and consumer, continues to enhance its global incentive, recognition and rewards solutions through breadth of coverage and depth of choice. The company's programs now span 120 countries with 27 Grass Roots offices strategically located throughout the world. With four million reward choices, Grass Roots programs are the easiest and most cost efficient to deploy as well as the most globally expansive programs available on the market today.

"We continue to systematically expand our network of offices and investment in resources to ensure that we are able to provide a broad choice of rewards throughout the world," said Stephen Humphreys, CEO and president of Grass Roots America. "Global clients are finding significant benefits in offering comparable rewards programs to employees, customers and channel partners throughout the world. With our global reach, organizations don't have to make any strategic compromises. They can be secure in the knowledge that there is sensitivity and adherence to local custom and practice through a single service provider anywhere in the world," he added.

Unlike traditional incentive solutions that service multiple countries by drop shipping rewards from the U.S., or claiming global access by simply having one location on each continent to deliver rewards, Grass Roots takes a truly global approach with its domestic offices which supply rewards locally. This means that Grass Roots can bring truly global service, immense cost savings in not only shipping and managing rewards, but also speed in expediting rewards fulfillment.

Whether applied to employee reward and recognition, channel incentives or customer satisfaction and loyalty, Grass Roots manages results-orientated programs on a local, regional or international basis.

With more than four million rewards choices, Grass Roots targets specific cultural and social interests. "Catalogs are compiled to present local economic and cultural merchandise and gift selections. In France, for example, one of the most popular redemption items is fine wine; Spain favors Jamon; a favorite in the UK is a personal shredder; first choice in India is a case of fresh mangoes; and in the US, electronics top the list. With our global network of offices, we can easily deliver these and country-specific choices quickly and cost-efficiently," added Humphreys.

"With economic pressures throughout the world impacting bottom line performance, it's increasingly important to reward behaviors of employees and partners in order to attract and retain the 'best of the best'," Humphreys added. "Cost effective incentive programs can be a key factor in this mission."
