Are you ready to put the winter blahs behind you and spring forward to warmer, healthier weather? I certainly am as the Director of Fulfillment here at HMI Performance Incentives. Every year as we start to turn the proverbial corner, I begin looking through our incentive catalog to see what new and exciting incentive rewards are on tap to be updated or enhanced.

At this time of the year, many companies and employers are searching for a way to find unique and memorable ways to show gratitude to those who have done good work over the past year.  As we search for new and exciting ways to rewards employees for a job well done, it’s important to remember the words of John F.
