Michigan-Based Employee Recognition Company Expands Its Reach Internationally

July 29, 2010

Terryberry celebrates its partnership with Australian-based Reasons 2 Reward through the publication of a trusted business fable.

Grand Rapids, MI (PRWEB) November 30, 2010
For more than nine decades, Terryberry has worked with businesses around the world to implement employee recognition programs that engage the workforce. Now the company marks its recent expansion into Australia by publishing the second edition of the motivational book, Reasons 2 Reward, in the U.S.

Reasons 2 Reward is a business fable written by employee motivation experts Ann-Maree O’Neill and Shawn McKeogh. O’Neill and McKeogh are also co-founders of an organization in Australia that recently partnered with Terryberry to provide products for recognizing employees. The organization bears the same name as the book – Reasons 2 Reward.
“We wrote the book to help managers understand how to transform their business by using the simple principle that engaged employees are the key to business success,” says O’Neill, one of the authors of the book.
The newly released second edition of the book Reasons 2 Reward tells the story of Max Grimshaw, the General Manager of the fictitious Wally World Theme Park. After some time away, Grimshaw returns to the park only to find out that things aren’t the way they used to be. Even though Wally World is filled with fun rides, spectacular shows and tasty treats, Max discovers that the employees are unmotivated and disengaged. Readers get to follow Max’s journey as he transforms Wally World with one simple formula: Look after your people + Look after your customers = Maximum Profits.
The second edition of Reasons 2 Reward features a foreword written by Terryberry’s managing partner, Mike Byam. Byam is also the author of The WOW! Workplace. The WOW! Workplace gives readers a blueprint for establishing a culture of recognition in the workplace.
Terryberry recently formed a partnership with Reasons 2 Reward. The joint venture will increase Terryberry’s business particularly in the areas of spot recognition items, online peer-to-peer recognition program (, and custom lapel pins for employee awards.
“The organization Reasons 2 Reward has established a solid presence in Australia for employee motivation products and services,” says Byam. “It was a great fit for Terryberry to partner with them to expand our presence in that part of the world. The book will be an addition to our line of products to help managers engage and inspire their teams.”
