Guest Column – Joe Jones President and Founder Incenta Rewards

As America and our local community embark on 1 year since COVID-19 entered our world, one must reflect on how businesses/organizations have been impacted. Locally, we have seen successes and failures in business. Some failures were unavoidable while others have opportunity to succeed with proper planning and redirected company investments. I believe keeping a pulse on your company culture and how you invest into your workforce impacts if you will be in the post-pandemic survivor column. It is critical to not lose sight of best practices in creating or maintaining successful workforce engagement.

How does one best handle their workforce shift to Work From Home (WFH)? Business owners and leaders then ask themselves how their business culture has changed with the new norm of WFH. Are my employees focused on business objectives and productivity each workday? What are we doing as an organization to manage employee communications?

Employee recognition has never been more needed today. Focus groups report many employees are making great sacrifices with WFH arrangement, space, increased cost, online children learning at home, etc. These employees need to know their employer cares about them, nurtures them and maintains a culture where they want to continue to exceed their employer’s expectations. Thus, strong employee recognition and service reward programs need to be in place.

Incenta Rewards has invested into robust technology during the pandemic to offer online recognition and reward programs to assist companies with a culture that creates engagement and drives business goals. If your business needs a fresh look at employee engagement and intel on best practices for the ideal company culture, perhaps a goal of “Best Place to Work in the Miami Valley” feel free to reach out to  or visit  Supporting local is great for all our businesses to succeed!
