MotivAction Wins the Motivation Masters Award in Support of the Mpower Recognition and Engagement Program

MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwire - February 9, 2011) - MotivAction announced today that it has been named the engagement and recognition program winner in Incentive's Second Annual Motivation Masters Awards. Sponsored by Northstar Travel Media's Incentive magazine, "These awards celebrate the most effective, most creative, and best incentive and employee engagement programs of the year, showcasing what truly great incentives look like," said Leo Jakobson, Senior Editor. In selecting the Mpower Engagement program as the category winner, Jakobson said, "It's hard to argue with ROI that includes, 'this program saves lives'!"

"Winning this award is an affirmation that the engagement programs we design, deliver, and manage for our clients are the best in the industry," said Joe Keller, President and Chief Operating Officer at MotivAction. "Our success begins with our employees and their commitment to our mission: delivering results through people."

MotivAction earned this honor for the development and support of Mpower, an employee engagement program that services over 5,000 distribution-center employees and 600 managers at a Fortune 100 company, recognized as the leading health care supply company in North America. The employees, who exceed performance objectives, participate in safety training, or exhibit behaviors that align with company principles, receive instant recognition for their contributions. The goal of the Mpower program is to create a more engaged workforce and positively influence accuracy and productivity while decreasing employee turnover.

As a result of the program, annual employee opinion scores increased, defects per million opportunities decreased, and lines per hour -- which measures productivity -- have risen. The program results are extremely positive and continue to drive performance.
