Even good HR directors can make big mistakes when choosing a new social recognition product.

The BI WORLDWIDE development team built G5 and is justifiably proud of this industry-leading new social recognition system for many reasons. Here are just a few:

Badging, the icons that build a community around engagement. G5 badges can be awarded as reinforcement for company values, giving or receiving recognition, celebrating personal or professional milestones or in recognition of objective achievement. Badges can be earned through a progressive rules structure, as part of a “collect ‘em all” design, or through a simple file load.

Tangible rewards that change behavior. BI WORLDWIDE has a diverse and robust tangible rewards collection, featuring millions of merchandise offerings, digital downloads and event ticket options. Through the science of human behavior, we've learned that employee performance increases significantly more when there’s a tangible reward, not cash, to be earned. And through the science of tax implications (and that’s quite a science!), we've proven that our buy-wholesale capabilities really will save you money over our competitors’ tactics of selling gift cards at retail plus a markup.

Truly mobile, truly personalized. When you’re selecting a supplier for social recognition, you need to ask some hard questions about mobility and design. Do my employees need to go through a lot of clunky downloads, or visit an app store? Does the mobile site offer everything that’s on the main system? G5 is ready-to-go on any device, any time. And, with the largest available library of built-in
recognition applications, it requires no additional mobile downloads and no need to visit an app store.

Global, and meaning it. Saying you’re a global company is one thing. Delivering on that promise is another. Because we provide vigorous support with in-country local representation, we understand your environment in the way that other “global” companies cannot. We offer you more than “global” – we deliver global programs, locally.

See what happened to Joy and what you should look for – and beware of – when you’re making this important decision. http://www.biworldwide.com/en/white-papers/employee-engagement/the-3-biggest-myths-about-social-recognition
