How Do You Treat Your Employees?

eNewsletter-10-29-13_04

 

After a conversation with an executive at CONSOL Energy (CNX), Proforma learned the coal and gas company’s Gas Group had received the J. Brett Harvey Safety Award. This award recognizes CNX sites that have achieved one million hours without an accident. To recognize the workers’ dedication to maintaining a safe environment, CNX wanted to reward everyone in the group with embroidered jackets featuring the Harvey Safety Award logo. They turned to Proforma to find the right solution.

To meet CNX’s request, Proforma provided 400 high-quality jackets that could be embroidered. But Proforma’s work didn’t stop there. As an additional ‘thank you,’ each employee could choose one free, high-end item from a list of options. Usually CNX would take care of finding out what everyone wanted, purchasing the items and sending them out, but they didn’t want to go through the process again. They turned to Proforma to manage the entire program.

After collecting all the data and determining what each employee wanted, Proforma’s initial order for embroidered jackets turned into a sale for not only jackets, but also TVs, generators, bags and more. Proforma’s dedication to the project was rewarded when CNX asked for the same program the next year. With the relationship now established, Proforma plans on working on this incentive project for years to come.

How To Celebrate An Anniversary Casino Style

1111_case

 

One of Proforma’s long term customers, North Star Mohican Casino, recognizes its anniversary every year with a big celebration for its staff and customers. As part of its 18th anniversary celebration, the casino wanted to offer a promotional item to its patrons. While Proforma provided the casino with high quality anniversary items in the past, this year’s product would have to top the rest.

North Star Mohican wanted to use a fun treat to grab their customers’ attention. Proforma not only provided the casino with a delicious food item, but a complete promotional program.

To participate, patrons had to amass 160 points in the casino. After this was accomplished, they could pick up one of the 12,000 custom candy bars created for North Star Mohican’s anniversary. Inside each candy bar wrapper, there was a sheet of FDA approved wax paper, which was considered a “ticket.” Based on the color, guests could win various increments of money and prizes.

The candy bar program made this North Star Mohican’s best anniversary yet. The prize tickets made their tasty promotion even more enticing and keep the patrons involved and entertained throughout the entire celebration!

Employee Appreciation This Christmas Season

Employee appreciation this Christmas Season!

Easton Coach Company wanted to show their employees their appreciation over the holiday season. The bus company wanted the best of the best for their bus drivers and asked Proforma to provide gifts that the drivers would find useful.

Proforma developed a creative mix of gifts for Easton to choose from including leather items, coolers, chairs, emergency kits, stainless gifts, watches and barbeque sets. Easton was able to see and feel each of the products before they ordered anything.

Once Easton selected a cooler and aluminum water bottle gift package, Proforma had two weeks to deliver the products so they would arrive in time for the company holiday event. A spec sample was quickly produced and once approved by Easton all of the final products were delivered to the company in just two days!

Associates loved their gifts and Easton’s president was grateful for the extra efforts made by Proforma to deliver the gifts in a short period of time. “Proforma anticipated our needs and provided several very creative ideas we never could have come up with on our own. Our experience with companies that handled our promotional items before Proforma was inconsistent. Now, we feel like we have a true partner,” said Joe Scott, president and CEO of Easton Coach Company. Since the successful holiday gift project Proforma continues to work with Easton on other projects.

One of the most effective ways to build a team is to show that you care. A small gifts, a thank you note, or even “good job” goes a long way at building a successful team.
