Rideau Training Develops Next Generation Recognition

Montreal and New York City, December 14th, 2009 – Demonstrating a commitment to leadership in recognition, Rideau Recognition Solutions announces the completion of Certified Recognition Professionals training by 38 of its employees. Today, almost all of Rideau’s executives and day-to-day recognition leaders hold recognition’s most prestigious professional designation.

Created by Recognition Professionals International (RPI), the world’s leading association for reward and recognition, the four course CRP program teaches active recognition personnel how to design a recognition program ideally tailored to an organization’s specific needs. CRP also demonstrates ways to align recognition strategies to business objectives and culture, and focuses on measuring the impact of a recognition program as processes are improved

Combining real world examples and best practices, each CRP module provides the practical education needed for designing and maintaining a successful recognition program. Elevating Rideau’s people into recognition specialists provides added value to the company and its clients. Investment in CRP certification is affirmation of Rideau’s commitment to providing excellent recognition solutions.

CRP is based on RPI’s seven best practice standards for employee recognition systems, which include Recognition Strategy, Management Responsibility, Recognition Program Measurement, Communication Planning, Recognition Training, Recognition Events and Celebrations, and Program Change and flexibility. To ensure that CRP holders stay informed of recent best practices, they must be recertified every three years. Recertification encourages continuing education for professional development.
