We’re on a Five-Time Best and Brightest Winning Streak? Whoa!
We did it again! For the fifth year in a row, Incentive Solutions has been named one of Atlanta’s Best and Brightest Companies to Work For! Our company culture and engaged, motivated staff continue to make the Incentive Solutions employee experience one of the best around.
“We live by the slogan, ‘teamwork makes the dream work’,” says our VP of Sales, Luke Kreitner. “It might be cheesy, but it succinctly defines how we care for each other. We celebrate success, but also hold each other accountable to commitments because we expect and want to work in a high-performance environment.”
Congratulations, Incentive Solutions team, on proving once again that you know how to take your roles to the next level!
BthruB is Bringin’ it on Home to the ATL!
For the past two years, we’ve held our BthruB Leadership conference at the beautiful, historic Barnsley resort in north Georgia. In 2017, we’ll be doing things a little differently. Our attendees told us they’d love to get the Atlanta experience during BthruB and we liked the sound of that! So, this year, BthruB’s location will be the fabulous St. Regis hotel in Atlanta’s Buckhead area!
“We wanted to send a new message this year, change up the atmosphere and celebrate Atlanta,” says Travel Services Director, Deven Crane. “So we’re bringing attendees to an up-scale hotel and focusing our activities on local attractions like the Georgia Aquarium and the World of Coke.”
We can’t wait to kick off BthruB, Atlanta style!
