Yankee Candle Company Celebrates World's Best Loved Employees with Recognition Program by Michael C. Fina

Honoring the “World’s Best Loved Employees,” The Yankee Candle Company, Inc., the world’s largest manufacturer of premium scented candles, is working with Michael C. Fina, a leading provider of global employee recognition and incentive programs, on the design and deployment of its employee recognition program.

Michael C. Fina is helping Yankee Candle celebrate their employees’ company achievements and milestones, including service anniversaries, with a dedicated recognition program designed to align with Yankee Candle’s corporate goals and unique work culture.

“As a company that is committed to its customers and continued growth, we realize the importance of fully recognizing each employee’s individual contributions,” said Donna Vance, Benefits and Administrative Services Manager, The Yankee Candle Company, Inc. “Michael C. Fina has helped us streamline our employee recognition strategy and implementation. The program is now turnkey to scale with our growth and more effectively delivers on the promise of ‘The World’s Best Loved Employees’.”

Yankee Candle selected Michael C. Fina for a consistent and reliable recognition process that could be expanded globally and managed from a central location.

The program, which the Yankee Candle HR team can track through Michael C.

Yankee Candle honors 10-year employees with a brick in the sidewalk at the flagship store in Deerfield, Mass. or at the EMEA headquarters in the U.K. Web-based recognition tools and training for managers also help ensure manager participation and more meaningful workplace celebrations.

Fina. “Making recognition an event to look forward to helps drive loyalty and a culture of recognition within the organization.”
