Hey there

Meet Recognition Plus – your brand ambassadors!

We appreciate you being here.
It’s nice to be recognised isn’t it? To be noticed, appreciated and even celebrated! Personally, It lifts you, fires you up, motivates you. For businesses, it can lead to more leads, more sales, more success.
After working our butts off (well, if only!) in the corporate world and mostly feeling unappreciated, we realised that we wanted a role that allowed us to directly help communities and small and medium
size businesses thrive by supporting the creation of amazing cultures and customer experiences and building powerhouse brands people love.
And that led us to Recognition Plus.

Whether you are a small business, franchise, large corporate, community group, charity or family, strong relationships (those deep emotional connections) are at the core of success. So how do we strengthen these connections?

Recognition! Being seen, being appreciated and being loved.

Hands down, recognising other humans takes the cake when it comes to developing great cultures, communities and corporations. It’s been proven that companies that regularly recognise their employees have higher profits (a 28 percent increase in earnings per share over a 12-month period, according to a global workforce study). That’s huge. And from experience in environments that lack this, we know its effect on the bottom line.

And, just like it is critical to generate trust and affinity in a human relationship, a business must create a strong, authentic and relevant connection with their desired clients (or members) beyond product. When it comes to our friends, we tend to stick with people that share the same values and world view and that we enjoy spending time with. This is the same in business. You need to build a level of ‘likeability’ not just trust. Research studies show that emotionally connected customers have over 300% higher lifetime value and recommend a brand at a much higher rate! It’s not enough just to be known – you need to be meaningful and compelling.

And that’s where we believe high quality merchandise, awards and gifts come into their own. Creative, personally branded or named gear that people actually love and find meaningful can create unique experiences, moments and memories that build positive connections with brands and people, and between brands and people.

The business of business is relationships: the business of life is human connection.

Here at Recognition Plus our mission is to help individuals and organisations recognise and celebrate people, relationships, experiences and moments in ways that create thriving brands and communities. Ones that people know, love and want to belong to.

In a nutshell we exist to support recognition (and celebration!) of brands, people and relationships – to help people feel significant and brands become significant. We were founded in 1994 as a Queensland retailer of awards and trophies to ‘recognise’ moments, milestones and amazing deeds. Today, while we continue to celebrate achievement, the company has grown significantly to become a national leader and preferred supplier of high quality, corporate and promotional merchandise that help businesses to strengthen their culture, communicate their personality and core values and actively build brand awareness and affinity.

The wonderful range of quality products combined with our amazing inhouse printing prowess allows you to create…well…almost anything! The experience you give your staff, your clients, your members or your loved ones is in your hands. We’ll just ensure it’s ‘on brand’, amazing quality and delivered on time and budget!

We want to see brands become epic, we want to see people reach their potential, we want to see strong, empowered teams and ahh!mazing communities.

Our team,

your brand’s cheerleaders

The Recognition Plus way

BE BRILLIANT & BRAVE

We don’t do anything half hearted. We go above and beyond to deliver a stand out result and we never, ever give up. We are continuously moving forward, innovating and improving. Small details can be huge. We aim for amazing quality in our entire experience – products and service. We’re passionate about delivering our very best in all we do, holding ourselves accountable for results. And when we fall short, we learn and only get better!

We’re constantly and courageously curious and creative. We love looking at the not-so-ordinary and challenging norms. We are innovative and love finding new and alternative ways. Rather than saying ‘no’ or that something can’t be done, we help find a way through honouring and respecting innovation, and its impact on behaviour and timeframes.

 

CARE, CONNECT & COLLABORATE – BETTER TOGETHER

We are one team! Our employees, our fantastic clients and our wider community! Every employee represents the brand. We value our people and we take care of each other. Community is also critical to us – we love supporting the communities we live and work in.

We work together with our customers to achieve positive outcomes. We genuinely care about the wellbeing of every individual, every group and every brand. We love seeing people and brands come alive.

Collaboration is inherent in our processes. We put ourselves in our customer’s shoes. We are consistently open, honest, ethical and genuine. We keep our promises.⠀

Team work really does make the dream work! ⠀⠀⠀
