TharpeRobbins is poised to triple the size of its rewards catalog along with the introduction of several new brands and services as a result of the company’s recent merger with Hinda Incentives, a premier award supplier. Through infinitE™, Hinda offers millions of rewards choices ranging from branded merchandise and digital awards to books and entertainment with flexible solutions and well-developed web platforms for program management.
“Hinda’s expertise in the consumer, sales and channel programs offers TharpeRobbins many new options,” says Anthony Luciano, senior vice president of marketing for TharpeRobbins. “Employees want a wide variety of choices in their catalog reward selections, so we know these new alternatives will generate a very positive reaction. The more the better.”
The size of the TharpeRobbins catalog will more than triple with the infinitE™ addition because it includes a wide variety of hard media such as books, video games and CD’s, adding another product category into TharpeRobbin’s overall reward offering.
The number of stocked products also will grow substantially, which will allow for additional control over delivery for all of its programs.
The sharing works both ways. Because TharpeRobbins is a manufacturer of precious metal jewelry, Hinda now is able to offer its clients a custom jewelry option, thereby expanding its jewelry catalog offerings to include more trendy custom options.
“The strengths of TharpeRobbins and Hinda Incentives together with our joint commitment to the incentive industry will continue to provide clients with the best possible resources,” says Brett Tharpe, CEO of TharpeRobbins. “With our combined expertise, the products and services offered by each company naturally complement one another.”
For more than 100 years, TharpeRobbins’ rich history as an innovator has covered the breadth of managed reward and recognition programs. The company fosters superior performance by creating new standards for employee recognition and rewards through imaginative solutions, cutting edge programs, flawless execution, professional service and world-class technology.
