Just as no two individuals are alike, the same can be said for employee rewards. A reward that may mean the world to one employee may be totally unappreciated by another. TharpeRobbins found a solution with its new Omni Mall program.
“We did our homework with extensive research to discover what types of rewards were most meaningful to employees ranging from delayed retirees to employees just out of college. From the grandfather clocks and pool tables of the Traditionalists to the yoga mats and iPods of Gen ‘Y’, this new mix of products in Omni Mall crosses generations,” says Anthony Luciano, senior vice president of sales and marketing for TharpeRobbins. “We have searched the globe to find the best products to appeal to people in all stages of life.”
A global leader in managed employee reward and recognition, TharpeRobbins researched the different generational preferences of Traditionalists, Baby Boomers, Generation X and Generation Y to assemble the following mall of options.
1. Omni Home – Décor and entertaining accessories that express a unique style including lamps, clocks, furniture and vases.
2. Omni Everyday – Frequently used items such as kitchen appliances, cookware sets and cutlery.
3. Omni eStore – Electronic items such as digital cameras, camcorders, printers and home theatre systems.
4. Omni Adventure and Fitness – Rewards that support exploring the outdoors, staying active and stylish travel including bikes, tents, fishing gear, golf clubs and telescopes.
5. Omni Family Fun – Items that allow everyone in the family the chance to be entertained with board games, musical instruments, pool tables, scooters and game systems.
6. Omni Outdoors and Tools – Equipment that keeps the yard and garden in great shape including power tools, patio sets, fire pits, hammocks and barbeque grills.

9. Omni On Time – Top brand name watches that reflect a wide variety of lifestyles and personalities including strap watches, sport watches, dress watches and self-winding watches.
