[NEW YORK] – WorkStride, a leading provider of employee recognition and channel performance solutions, was presented with two prestigious 2022 Stevie® Awards in the 16th annual Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service.
The wins include a Gold award for Most Valuable Response by a Sales Team alongside client JELD-WEN, as well as a Bronze award for Incentive, Rewards, and Recognition Provider of the Year.
The Gold Stevie® Award in the Most Valuable Response by a Sales Team category acknowledges the COVID-19 response facilitated by WorkStride’s partnership with JELD-WEN, one of the world’s largest global manufacturers of doors and windows,
The Most Valuable Response by a Sales Team win recognized the success of JELD-WEN, with the help of WorkStride, in quickly pivoting their dealer strategy to a compelling training incentive program during the dealer downtime of COVID-19. This helped put JELD-WEN dealers to work with sharpening their skills on training while earning monetary rewards for participating. “The pandemic necessitated moving all training and education online, which resulted in 19.6% growth in program enrollment and participation,” according to the award submission by JELD-WEN.
Tom Silk, WorkStride CEO, said of the JELD-WEN win: “We feel honored to have been a part of the now award-winning JELD-WEN University program, in what has become a testament to executing swiftly and strategically to environmental change. Kudos to our partners at JELD-WEN and everyone involved.”
The Bronze Stevie® Award in the Incentive, Rewards, and Recognition Provider of the Year category acknowledges WorkStride as a leading solutions provider in the rewards industry.
The Incentive, Rewards, and Recognition Provider of the Year win acknowledged the notable achievements by WorkStride including client growth, technological innovation, culture, and customer satisfaction increases measured by NPS and CSAT.
“It’s rewarding to see that WorkStride’s relentless dedication to our customers and employees continues to pay off,” commented Tom Silk on the win. “I’m proud of the innovations WorkStride has made in our solutions, company culture, and client satisfaction that has earned us recognition as a top provider in our space.”
