Siemens’ employee reward and recognition program receives award for

“Most Motivational Benefits”

(New York, NY.January 11, 2022) — Madison, a global leader in social recognition, congratulates its long-standing partner, Siemens UK, for receiving the “Most Motivational Benefits” as part of the 2021 Employee Benefits Awards program. The award was received by the Siemens Compensation and Benefits UK team for its Share Thanks and Rewards (STAR) employee rewards and recognition solution. Employee Benefits Awards, now embarking on its 20th year, recognizes key contributors in the HR, reward and benefits sectors for their dedication to excellence in the industry.

According to Employee Benefits, the award was given to Siemens based on its use of branding and technology to motivate team members, as well as the program’s “consistency in recognition from country to country.”

Heike Avramovic, head of compensation and benefits for north-west Europe, Siemens, said, “This is so amazing for us as a team, it’s been a long time coming. We’ve had many colleagues involved in this, not only here in the UK but it’s a global project and a massive order for all of us. It’s a big team effort.”

The Siemens UK STAR program was launched in June 2020 leveraging Madison’s Maestro uniquely configured SaaS based solution. This solution continues to grow and evolve as Madison leverages new technologies and enhancements.

Alex Alaminos, President and CEO, Madison said this of the recent accolades, “This is why we do what we do here at Madison. Our goal is to help create programs that inspire and celebrate employees everywhere. Seeing the Siemens UK team receive this award for instilling a culture of motivation and celebration in their work environment tells us we have the right goals in mind. Congratulations to our friends at Siemens on this well-deserved award.”
