BI WORLDWIDE's Mobile Engagement Solution Wins Top HR Product of the Year

BI WORLDWIDE’s patent-pending mobile employee engagement solution, RAVE® has been named a Top Human Resources Product of the Year by Human Resource Executive® magazine. RAVE is a revolutionary, mobile-based platform designed to maximize workforce engagement and productivity through two-way social communication, recognition, rewards and just-in-time learning.

“This award is a great honor for us and I’m proud we’ve developed a mobile solution that puts communications, learning, recognition and rewards in the hands of employees around the globe,” said Kathy Blomquist, an account director at BI WORLDWIDE. Blomquist and Lorraine Frias, interactive promotions strategist at BI WORLDWIDE, developed the technology so employers could have a real-time way to connect with and engage front-line employees, bringing them closer to their company’s culture, values and brand.

Blomquist and Frias created RAVE after seeing their clients struggle with how to engage employees, especially retail and manufacturing employers whose on-the-floor employees do not have regular access to computers. With the dramatic increase in the number of smartphone owners, they realized there was an opportunity to develop a mobile system to make it easier for managers to instantly recognize, reward, communicate and train employees.

“Large employers are always looking for new ways to increase employee engagement. We know that on-the-spot recognition from managers makes a big impact with employees,” said Frias. “RAVE allows managers to instantly connect with their employees and create a closed-loop fluid conversation to increase employee engagement.”

Some of the things managers can do with RAVE include:
• Give personalized, in-the-moment recognition
• Maximize two-way communications
• Provide immediate access to important information
• Connect front-line employees to the customer brand message
• Deliver bite-sized, interactive, on-the-spot learning
• Decrease the time it takes for new hires to become productive
• Reward employees with points towards an awards catalog where they can immediately purchase items

BI WORLDWIDE accepted the Top HR Product of the Year award at Human Resource Executive’s 14th Annual HR Technology® Conference & Expo in Las Vegas, Nevada, this week.
