ATLANTA – September 11, 2014 – U.S. Security Associates (USA) is recognized as "Best in Rewards and Recognition" in the 20th Annual Brandon Hall Group Excellence Awards Program. USA wins a Bronze Award for Best Rewards and Recognition Program in the Talent Management and Human Resources category. USA is a national security company known for offering attractive incentives, awards, and personal development opportunities to its over 50,000 employees. This year's award follows the Brandon Hall Group's selection of USA as a winner of the Bronze Award for Best Talent Acquisition Process in 2013.
Now in its 20th year, the Brandon Hall Group Excellence Awards Program was the first award program of its kind in the learning industry. Often considered the most elite Human Capital Management (HCM) recognition program in the industry, the Brandon Hall Group promotes inventive personnel management and leadership by recognizing organizations whose performance standards and clear-cut strategies produce measurable results.
USA was named one of the "Best in Rewards and Recognition" for a company-wide approach to rewarding, encouraging and promoting top performers that supports improved performance, and creates positive organizational outcomes. Award entries were evaluated by industry analysts and Brandon Hall Group's executive leadership team according to the program's fit for the organization's need, the design of the program itself, and its functionality, usability, innovation, and overall measureable benefits.
Gold, silver, and bronze award winners were announced during a special live webinar on September 9. Brandon Hall Group CEO Mike Cooke, COO Rachel Cooke, and VP/Corporate and Product Development Claude Werder named winners in more than 50 categories. Award winners are being honored at Brandon Hall Group's upcoming HCM Excellence Conference in early 2015 in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., where select winning organizations are presenting and sharing the processes and philosophies that led to their commendation.
"As a service organization, we know effective employee recognition practices are critical to retaining and motivating the best employees," says Richard Wyckoff, USA's president and CEO. "Having one of the best rewards and recognition programs in the security services industry helps us maintain extraordinarily low turnover, and we are continuously improving and expanding our program to attract and retain experienced, enthusiastic security service professionals."
