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 business centers, whether for Dallas or 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 employee 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 boost in 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 was an added bonus that changed the way Hertz managed rewards and recognition in their organization.
Now, three years after implementing Awardco, Hertz has gone from one small localized recognition program to 14 different global programs running simultaneously, some ongoing and some seasonal. Overall employee engagement has increased worldwide, as well as employee inclusion and participation in recognition programs across the globe. Awardco even provided support 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.
“Using Awardco has given us the confidence that we’ve partnered with someone that knows what they’re doing,” says Anna. “We’re not only saving a lot of time, but we’re building the confidence of our employees as we express our appreciation to all of them worldwide.”
