A 2008 survey by Scottsdale, Arizona-based WorldatWork, a nonprofit organization focused on knowledge leadership for human-resources diciplines, stated nearly 90 percent of organizations polled have a company-wide employee recognition or giving program in place. Further, the organization found only 8 percent of companies eliminated such programs, a figure down from a 2005 level of 11 percent. With its members being human-resources professionals, i.e., those likely to run corporate gift and incentive programs, it is good news for promotional product distributors who may face economy-related slowdowns.
