Baudville Challenges Companies to do Recognition Daily at HR Florida State Conference
Leading supplier of employee reward items brings positive mojo and new daily recognition tools to the HR Florida State Conference
Orlando, FL – August 17, 2009 – Building upon its success at the Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM) Annual Conference and Exposition in New Orleans, Baudville, a leading supplier of award and employee recognition products, is bringing its positive mojo and message of day-to-day recognition to the HR Florida State Conference.
Well-established as a provider of innovative employee reward items, Baudville has developed a niche in daily recognition products and will be demonstrating the effectiveness of day-to-day recognition in booth #313 at the HR Florida Conference and Expo, August 17- 19, 2009, at the Rosen Shingle Creek Hotel in Orlando. Attendees who visit the Baudville booth will receive an “I’m with Stupendous” tote bag from the company’s new Exclamations theme line.

Known for its leading-edge and creative employee recognition items, Baudville makes products that extend beyond traditional milestone gifts to products that help employers effectively express informal, on the spot and day-to-day recognition of employees.
“As profits have plunged and unemployment has soared, smart companies are realizing that employee recognition matters now more than ever,” explained Brad Darooge, president and CEO of Baudville. “However, stressed workers aren’t necessarily motivated by the notion of a milestone gift somewhere in their future. They’re working hard now, and they need recognition now. That’s why Baudville focuses primarily on daily recognition tools.”
In the recession, many companies have scaled down or eliminated their employee recognition programs and events. However, employee motivation and retention are more important than ever before. “In contrast to extravagant parties and lavish gifts, companies practicing day-to-day recognition find it to be a much more affordable and appropriate employee recognition option,” said Darooge. “We’re confident the companies who continue their daily recognition efforts throughout the recession will emerge stronger than ever when the economy picks up again.”
As an example, Darooge points to the new Cheers KitTM, one of 254 new day-to-day recognition products. “The Cheers Kit puts daily recognition at a manager’s fingertips and brings the satisfaction of an award ceremony to every day,” said Darooge.
The Cheers KitTM contains five different tools, each with space for a handwritten note. With 40 total recognition transactions easily accessible, managers no longer have an excuse not to recognize. And to triple the impact of daily recognition, the Cheers KitTM can be upgraded to a Caboodle that houses three different kits. The Caboodle is designed to serve as a recognition nerve center and can be used as a peer-to-peer system.
In carving out the day-to-day recognition niche, Baudville underwent an identity transformation. The company’s new identity includes a new logo and tagline, website, blog and catalog. Attendees will be introduced to the new look of Baudville and its suite of new products in booth #313 at the HR Florida Expo.
Baudville, the place for daily recognition, continues to be the leading innovator in day-to-day recognition solutions. Baudville’s day-to-day recognition solutions appeal to today’s increasingly diverse workforce with contemporary designs and relevant messaging, motivating and engaging workplaces world-wide. Baudville has been declared one of the best companies to work for in its area and strives to create the ultimate work experience for its employees.
