“RPI brings together like-minded individuals who know the value that recognition delivers in driving behavior change. As an RPI member, my clients regard me as an expert in all aspects of engagement and loyalty within an organization. The information shared by RPI at the annual conference, during the webinars and among the community members helps to reinforce how and when to recognize someone in alignment with the latest research published by academics in this field.”
Dr. Jacalyn Kerbeck, CRP
