Bravo! Incentive Program

What is Bravo! ?

Bravo! is an individual or team incentive that provides recognition and appreciation for outstanding above-and-beyond performance or service. When someone feels appreciated and valued, it affirms the commitment they’ve made to the company and incentivizes them to excel. Bravo! is designed to spotlight and encourage behavior that supports the company’s core values:

• Unique and innovative employee contributions
• Special contributions made by an employee
• Significant team or cross-functional accomplishments
• Sales or service excellence
Awards begin at $500 with no maximum value.

How do I know if an employee’s actions are appropriate for award recognition?

As a company leader, you may nominate an employee for a Bravo! award. When a simple “thank you” does not seem quite enough, Bravo! awards can be given to employees to recognize their outstanding actions that contribute to the success of the company. When considering nominating someone for a Bravo! award think about the values that the employee exemplifies. Some examples below:


We own our actions, deliver on our commitments, and actively support our company’s goals.


We perform our responsibilities with the highest standards of quality to achieve exceptional outcomes.


We embrace diverse talents and perspectives, support collaboration, and encourage the open exchange of ideas.


We develop creative strategies and solutions in pursuit of continuous improvement.


We are honest, respectful, and ethical in all aspects of our work.


We commit to serve our customers and to earn their trust and confidence every day.
