Terryberry Past, Present, & Future

At Terryberry we are proud of our heritage, committed to recognition solutions for businesses today, and excited about the future of employee recognition!

An Established Partner with a Proven Reputation

For nearly a century, Terryberry has been helping organizations develop, implement and manage employee recognition programs. Founded by Herbert R. Terryberry in 1918, Terryberry began as an award manufacturer, crafting high quality recognition awards and recognition jewelry in our manufacturing facility in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Today, Terryberry has 26 Locations in North America and Europe and serves 25,000+ clients worldwide.  Terryberry remains a family-owned company, led by 4th Generation Managing Partner Mike Byam, and still manufactures jewelry awards in Grand Rapids, MI USA.  

Recognition Solutions for Right Now

Terryberry's approach is to do more than just offer employee recognition programs…we strive to help our clients develop a culture of recognition in the workplace. An effective employee recognition culture involves three elements: formal recognition of significant achievements; informal recognition for attitudes, behaviors and contributions your organization values; and day-to-day recognition for the ways your people go above and beyond. Terryberry's recognition solutions, like our Social Media-styled Give-a-WOW! program, are designed to meet the recognition needs of your employees today.

Whether you need to implement employee recognition programs that work in your organization, want to provide a special award for a significant achievement, or just want employee recognition ideas, we can help.

The Future of Employee Recognition

We are rounding out a century of experience, but we're not resting on our laurels. Terryberry is committed to innovating the future with our employee recognition ideas and programs. In every aspect of your recognition program, we're working to make your recipients' experience even more meaningful and inspiring. Whether it's developing new ways to give recognition like our app for your smartphone, offering new and exciting types of awards, or working with your recognition ideas to create a recognition solution like no other, we are dedicated to making more wow moments happen every day!

And Now, for a Little Recognition of Our Own!

We don't often toot our own horn…we're too busy helping you toot the horn for your esteemed award recipients! But we can't help but be excited about some of the honors Terryberry has received for our employee recognition programs that work.
