Are your employees actively engaged with their work,
or are they simply putting in their time?

Employee Longevity Awards

McDowell Incentives, Inc. offers a unique concept in longevity award selection and presentation, developed with a single goal in mind - providing maximum impact at the recognition moment and ultimate choice in quality awards in a flexible, easily administered, web-based turnkey format.

Performance Rewards

STARS Performance-Based Recognition engages a workforce by showing appreciation, and rewarding employees frequently with meaningful awards for behavior, actions, attitudes and achievements that produce results against an organization’s goals, while reinforcing its vision and values.

Behavior-Based Safety and Accident Prevention

Preventing accidents must become an objective for both employers and employees; however, it is the employer who is ultimately held responsible either to initiate preventive measures or to compensate for injuries.  Establishing an accident prevention culture is a start.

Employee Health and Wellness Incentives

70% of healthcare expenses stem from preventable causes.  Most drivers of healthcare costs and outcomes are associated with human behavior. Targeted and well-designed incentives can directly influence healthy human behaviors and actions.  

On-the-Spot Rewards

Rewarding quality work doesn't always need to be so formal. Put the power of spontaneous acts of recognition in your front line managers' hands with Spot Recognition.  Reward on the spot! 

Manager Recognition Training

Not every manager was born to lead or to be able to praise the behavior of their subordinates.  However, these are skills that can and should be learned.  Ask us about the training courses available for your business. 

Employee Longevity / Service Awards 

The employee anniversary is one of the unique times that top management can communicate directly to its employees. McDowell Incentives, Inc. and its partners have developed the ideal turnkey solution to awarding these employees' anniversaries.  It's a unique approach to award programs, which combines the advantages of a symbolic recognition program with a contemporary flair, and is supported by the industry's most advanced web-based administration system.&nbsp

The fundamental principle behind our Service Award Program is the "recipient's choice."  Each employee is empowered to choose their award from a pre-selected ensemble of merchandise that includes gifts for the home and office, fashion jewelry, watches, tools, and outdoor lifestyles. 

With the BEST Awards Presentation Packaging in the Industry!

 Award Selections to Satisfy Even the Hardest-to-Please Employees


Unlike other reward options, STARS provides a balanced recognition solution by providing both corporately identified/logo (Commemorative) and non-decorated (Contemporary) selections in 19 budget levels.  Commemorative awards contain a 24k gold or silver symbolic medallion that will display your corporate identity.  Most levels contain 35 Commemorative items and include a lifetime warranty.  Contemporary awards include the most popular items in electronics, outdoor, home, office, designer jewelry, and other lifestyle items.  Your employees will have 1000's of award options per budget level to choose from.

Safety incentive programs reinforce safety protocols and encourage employees to work safely by rewarding them when they do. To build a successful safety incentive program, you must have a way to consistently measure success, as well as discover any areas of improvement.

Most traditional safety programs treat only the symptoms of the problem and not the cause.

Our behavior-based programs can assist you in measuring and awarding employees for leading indicators. KPIs vary by industry, but it is important to create measurable KPIs that are credible and predictive. We use a Shared Risk Shared Reward Model, meaning you only purchase points for your program when goals and KPIs are accomplished.

Recognizing employees monthly versus annually has proven to be the most effective way to achieve positive results. Our platform gives you the ability to easily recognize employees each month for leading indicators such as:

Safety Suggestions ~ Safety Audits ~ Reporting Near Misses ~ Proper Use of PPE
