Where We Came From

Growing up, Steve Sonnenberg learned a great deal from his father’s lifelong career in employee recognition. One day, Steve wanted to make a difference in the same industry.

Like Father, Like Son

Steve and his cousin Mike both studied computer science in college, and gained experience developing software for several different companies after graduating.

Development Duo

Steve had an idea and gave Mike a call. Recognizing the critical need for new, innovative technology in the recognition industry, they immediately set to work developing a platform.

A New Beginning

Our team officially took Awardco out of beta and started solving employee recognition problems for an industry in serious need of improvement.


Awardco officially teamed up with Amazon Business to offer employees the options and convenience of a world-wide leader in ecommerce.

Awardco + Amazon

With a simple, impactful, and proven employee recognition model, we are rapidly expanding in employees and clients.
