With a corporate culture that values employees & encourages them to be great, Hendrick’s General Manager Joel Smith is always looking for unique ways to recognize great employees. Existing programs recognized those who did something exceptional even outside of Hendrick. He wanted something to regularly recognize when someone was being “remarkable” on the job.
Taking a page out of other successful well known businesses, Joel developed a recognition program utilizing a custom designed challenge coin. His managers are each given a coin to give to the employee in their department that has done something “remarkable” on the job that month. Employees with the coin get to spin a wheel for cash and prizes. The coin includes the Hendrick logo and colors as well as the saying “You Are Remarkable”. This was his original concept and the designs flowed from his vision.
