Hertz successfully took their recognition programs global to over 24,000 employees and weathered the storm of a global pandemic by partnering with Awardco.
Hertz, a Fortune 500 company, is a car rental service based in the United States that operates approximately 12,000 corporate and franchise locations around the world. For over 100 years Hertz has provided a level of service that shows they not only care about their customers, but their employees as well.
“With Awardco we’ve taken employee recognition global—something we were never able to do before.”
Awardco offered Hertz the ability to use Amazon in their rewards and recognition programs, which meant they could provide a consistent experience across all of their global business centers, from Dallas to Dubai.
The ability to develop multiple programs in the platform without having to go through frustrating hoops or multiple rounds of implementation was incredibly helpful too. The Awardco recognition platform came with the capability to create different programs AND set different budgets, and nobody else offered that. As Hertz began with Awardco, they found even more benefits in a reduction in administration time and a program adoption that skyrocketed because of the simplicity of the platform.
The ease of setting up new programs and the speed at which employees caught on to how to use the program was an added bonus that changed the way Hertz managed their rewards and recognition programs.
Now, three years after implementing Awardco, Hertz has gone from one small recognition program to 14 different programs running at once, some ongoing and some seasonal. Overall employee engagement has increased worldwide, as well as employee participation in recognition programs across the globe.
Awardco has even been able to support Hertz through a very difficult time brought on by the global pandemic when the car rental industry suffered for many long months—and now Hertz is back and better than ever.
“Awardco is not only a fantastic recognition solution but a fantastic technology solution that also provides recognition. Awardco has given us a level of confidence we didn’t have before.”
