2021 Business Success =  Exceptional Leadership of Engaged Employees Aligned With Purpose and Committed to Results Because They Are Appreciated, Recognized, and Rewarded.  

We help you achieve success with strategic plans that include employee engagement & recognition programs as well as incentive programs, cutting-edge technology, and rewards in 185 countries.

Since 1996, we have been helping businesses get the most of their employees willingly.  We combine expertise with market-priced rewards and AI powered technology designed specifically for your needs. 

why work with us?

We combine sustainability, engagement and business performance expertise and include a recognition, incentive and reward component.

AND while we have a rewards catalog with over 100,000 market priced, locally sourced items and AI-powered technology, you aren't required to use them.

Research & Strategy

What is going on in your world?  Lots, right!  Everything seems like a moving target -- expectations, market, economy, regulations, restrictions, competitors' responses and so on.

The stakes are so high that one decision can have devastating consequences.

We work with you to create a business improvement strategy that helps to future-proof your business and then we add an incentive and/or recognition component to it, to help inspire employees to embrace it.

Design & Development

You know the saying "garbage in, garbage out", well it also applies to incentive program and recognition program design.

If you miss an important element when you design your program, you could do more damage than good.

As your strategic partner in improving sustainability, engagement, AND performance, we ensure your program aligns with corporate objectives AND is desirable and achievable in the eyes of the participants so that you shine! 

Implementation and Analysis

There are many options for implementing a do-it-yourself incentive program or recognition program and it might be tempting to consider one of them but then, who is going to design, implement and manage the program and where are you going to find the time to analyze the results so that you can adjust on the fly?

The good news is that you don't have to choose either a do-it-yourself app or a full-service advisor because at Marquee Incentives, we aren't tied to one app or specific rewards.

Instead, you can have the best of both worlds while we implement and manage your programs for you.

about us

We use our experience to create yours

Since 1996 we have been challenging the status quo in the incentive industry.  We launched with nothing more than a dream and a website and Microsoft was our first client.  A few years later, we developed an incentive program management software and we created a global network of incentive company providers to service multi-national clients.

But something wasn't sitting well.  The industry was all about selling the sizzle -- the rewards -- and not about the results.  Well, 2009 changed that for the better.

As with most industries, it was time for a reinvention and we were eager to be part of it.  

A few iterations later, we changed our name and our focus to be more aligned with people, planet and profit.

As part of our transformation, we changed our business model too.  

Our catalog has over 100,000 locally-sourced and market-priced rewards in 185 countries, which means your participants will find at least a few wish-list items while your rewards budget goes much farther.  Locally-sourced also means a lower carbon footprint and no logistical challenges.

We also partner with technology companies so that you get the best solution for your needs.  We have our favourites, of course, but we'll work with you to find an alternative, if needed.

Our Purpose is to reinvent business and transform lives and we're living on purpose each day.


Discover how we make a difference with your company

Today, creating and sustaining a high-performing workforce is a top challenge for most companies.  The combination of multiple generations in the workplace, pressure to do more with less, keep employees engaged and productive and external pressures is keeping executives and the C-Suite up at night.

Our approach is to understand your vision, Purpose, core values, strategy and goals, and your challenges.  Then we drill down to the root of the problem, look at what works well and what could work better, then we create a plan that positively impacts the entire organization while specifically addressing unique needs within a department or region.

Then we come up with campaigns and initiatives which often includes an incentive and/or recognition program to help inspire stakeholders to embrace change.  

Each organization is unique, so it's part science, part art, part push and part pull and we design the plans accordingly.  It's exciting to have wins along the way to keep people inspired too! 

For years we've been told we are a breath of fresh air and we all could use that these days!

…I wanted to thank you for your patience, time and of course, Tim Horton’s coupons at Christmas. I enjoyed working with you and your wonderful staff. …I was worried when Lynn left on mat leave. I couldn’t picture you finding a replacement that was as capable, as outgoing and as dedicated as her. But, you found Arlene, who is a real treasure. She has just been so wonderful, fun and just a delight to work with. Beverley.
