People enjoy doing this during anniversaries or anytime that the goals and ideals of the company need revamped. Find inventive and interactive ways to display your mission statements and core values. Take the time to tell your story, let your clients understand how deep your ideals go. Here are some examples…  The Boston Consulting Group (BCG) was looking for a unique way to celebrate its 50th anniversary among its 10,000+ employees.  In a dialogue with the customer, we quickly came to understand that a balance of their core values was critical to their longstanding success and growth.  We created a desktop fulcrum to symbolize this cultural drive for balance.  The fulcrum and accompanying lever are separate pieces, imprinted with brand elements.  The individual blocks and dimensional globe are included as elements to play with and balance in any number of ways—a truly unique custom award.  The result was an interactive desktop piece that perfectly symbolized the company’s fundamental principles. Northwest Nazarene University: At over 14’ in length, this honor wall is the largest scale, single-unit custom award Hasseman has ever produced.  We were involved from the outset to create, develop, and fabricate a donor recognition wall to be installed in a building that had not yet been built.  This challenge afforded us the opportunity to work with the building’s architects and designers.  In doing so, we were able to assimilate the same materials into the honor wall as were being used throughout the building.  We were also able to coordinate the location of the display, the lighting, and the structure of the wall behind it—all the infrastructural elements literally from the ground up.  This cooperative effort yielded a recognition centerpiece that will bear a legacy for the honored donors for years to come.  Victoria’s Secret & Express: Holiday sales for these retail brands represent an important portion of sales revenue and profitability, and management wanted to create an award/incentive program for store employees.  Each store would recognize the top sales performer, and they sought a one-of-a-kind symbolic recognition award that could be presented to the winning associates.  Taking our design cues from the iconic shopping bags, we created 8” tall replicas in colored glass.  Presented in a fully-branded, satin-lined box, these custom awards were perfectly suited to the recipients’demographic. TNT: McAfee, the well-regarded technology security provider, was conducting an internal performance program for its employees entitled “Today, Not Tomorrow.”  Hasseman explored a number of notions to represent this theme, but then zeroed in on the acronym “TNT.”  This quickly led our creative team down the path of a replica detonator—a fun way to convey a serious mission.  The solid metal desktop piece was crafted by hand, and delivered to key employees for display as a way of promoting the theme. Reach out to Hasseman Marketing and get help finding awards that work for you! Don’t feel lost, relax we are the experts contact us at Hasseman Marketing to get our recommendations on finding you the perfect fit. Want to keep up all the time?  Make sure to join our VIP List!  Our VIP’s get an email with the latest content…and other special offers as well.  Join here.
