HMI Performance Incentives Named as Inspirational Place to Work in 2021


Salt Lake City, Utah – July 13, 2022 – The Incentive Marketing Association (IMA) awarded HMI Performance Incentives of Norwood, Massachusetts as the Inspirational Place to Work in 2021 during the IMA Summit Awards program last night at The Cliff Lodge, Snowbird, Utah.

A new award, the Inspirational Place to Work in 2021 Award, is meant to spotlight organizations that put people first, offer an engaging and inspiring place to work, value the role of employees, and embrace an open and inclusive culture supported by a future-thinking leadership team. Efforts related to corporate responsibility, sustainability, and the impact their businesses have on the environment are also considered. 

HMI Performance Incentives was determined to make 2021 a year of positive impact. Knowing they would have to be creative to inspire their now largely remote workforce to discover new potential, they undertook five initiatives that engaged and rewarded employees and clients. For employees, they provided continuous training, health and wellness challenges, an employee incentive program and created a volunteer employee engagement committee. For clients, they inserted corporate social responsibility (CSR) into incentive travel programs to make them more meaningful and more effective as an incentive strategy. 
HMI Performance Incentives has seen measurable success on all fronts. Their CSR initiatives raised nearly $50,000 to address food insecurity for people in the communities that host their events. They also encouraged their destination partners to promote the CSR initiatives with other clients to increase the overall impact.

Within the company, HMI Performance Incentives has successfully promoted the next generation of leaders and 25% of current employees were recruited through employee referrals. HMI Performance Incentives also sees a direct correlation between employee engagement and new clients with 20% of programs launched in 2021 coming from client referrals.
