C.A. Short is often asked the question, “Is it possible for you to give me a total cost analysis, down to the penny for our service award program?”. Most companies are shocked when our team is able to confidently answer them and say, “Yes, we can!”.
The reason that organizations are surprised is that most employee recognition companies use what is called an “average pricing” model when designing service award programs. C.A. Short prefers to design employee recognition platforms with “budget control” pricing. Using this method means we are able to give our partners an exact number of what they can expect to spend and provide finite examples of rewards that are within their budget. In our opinion, this “average pricing” model is antiquated and, honestly, pretty deceptive.Read More >>

For employees, March of 2020’s sudden remote transition meant navigating the waters of turning their homes into their offices, learning what Zoom fatigue really means, and what to do when their child (furry or non) "interrupts" their meeting for the third time.

Each year on March 5, employers in the U.S. celebrate Employee Appreciation Day. It allows you to show your employees how much you value the work they do for your organization each day. There are no rules for this non-official celebratory day besides letting people know their value.
At C.A. Short, we celebrate workers on that same date. However, we focus on peer recognition through the increasingly observed Cheers for Peers Day, which has also become a nationally recognized, yet non-official professional appreciation day. Showing employee appreciation is the same for both days, but the method of doing so is somewhat different.
If you are thinking about switching over to Cheers for Peers this coming March 5, now is the time to discuss it and plan.
Here are some thoughts we want to share to get started.Read More >>
