The 2014 You Better Recognize Award for Best Recognition Program goes to… Hilcorp Energy!


Andrew had this to say about Hilcorp Energy’s recognition program:

What makes their recognition program truly special is that the rewards are customized to the recipient. It follows the platinum rule that it’s best to treat people the way they want to be treated and shows that the managers really care about the person doing the job, not just the job itself.

Here’s the nomination for Hilcorp Energy:

Organization: Hilcorp Energy (
Submitted by Steve-E

Managers at Hilcorp Energy are given flexibility with how they reward their direct reports. They are given a budget from corporate that allows them to recognize their employees in personalized ways, such as equestrian rides / lassoing lessons to a horse enthusiast.
