About C.A. Short Company 

For more than 85 years, C.A. Short Company has been a leader in the employee engagement and recognition industry.

Through our People Are Everything™ recognition platform and engagement solutions, we help organizations inspire, reward, and retain their most valuable assets: their people.

Our People Are Everything platform is completely configurable. Our programs are custom-tailored to meet your needs and ultimately, reach your business goals. With our Shared Risk-Reward Model, you only purchase program points when your goals and KPIs are met.

Our service award programs offer a wide variety of presentation options and thousands of awards to fit your culture. Feel confident to eliminate common budget overages with our Guaranteed Fixed Budget Control Pricing method.

As the first company to create 100% OSHA-compliant safety incentive programs, we understand you need to consistently measure success and discover any areas of improvement. We also understand that safety programs can often take too much time to manage. Our program, Safegagement™, was designed to reduce your administrative and management time. 

Our sales incentive programs are designed to retain your best salespeople while engaging the rest of your sales organization. 

Do more than tell your employees they matter - show them. From planning to implementation to program measurement,
we help you create memories that last a lifetime.

In Memoriam of Jeff Ross

We have some very sad news to share with you. C.A. Short Company's CEO & CFO Jeff Ross passed away on October 23, 2022. 

Those fortunate enough to know and work with Jeff have lost an inspiring mentor and dear friend. 

Words continuously fall short when expressing our sadness at Jeff’s passing.

Jeff was a true advocate for employee recognition and engagement. Our industry is immeasurably better because of him and his vision for C.A. Short Company.

He has left a beautiful legacy for us to cherish and carry forward. And we will do just that.
