Famous Brands International Chooses Teamphoria, Employee Engagement Software, to Power Its Rewards & Recognition Program

(PR Web Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Charleston, SC (PRWEB) February 19, 2014 SPARC announced today that Famous Brands International, the parent company of TCBY Frozen Yogurt and Mrs. Fields Cookies, has implemented Teamphoria at its Colorado-based corporate headquarters and nearby Gifting Facility in Utah. Teamphoria will provide digital, peer-to-peer recognition across multiple locations, power the company’s rewards program, and increase communication across the organization.

Teamphoria has been tapped by Famous Brands International to be used as the software behind its employee recognition and rewards program tied to the company’s core values. Teamphoria, a software platform designed to build, measure, and grow employee engagement, is comprised of several different apps, one of which focuses specifically on employee recognition. Teamphoria’s data-driven electronic recognition captures and shares all of the good deeds happening within an organization.

“We have a successful rewards program here at Famous Brands International, and we were looking for a way to expand it beyond our Gifting Facility, increase peer-to-peer recognition, and ultimately make our people even more engaged,” said Neal Courtney, CEO of Famous Brands International. “With Teamphoria up and running, we’ve been able to bring the entire company together on one recognition platform and increase the visibility of the program.” “Ultimately, we chose Teamphoria because of the flexibility it offered. After researching several options, Teamphoria was clearly the best choice for our organization from a functionality, implementation, and cost perspective,” said Sarah Vonnahme, Human Resources Consultant, Famous Brands International. “We are also excited about offering rewards directly tied to recognition that people are receiving and giving within Teamphoria.” Electronic recognition is just one of the apps available through Teamphoria, the complete employee engagement software, which encourages and reinforces positive workplace behavior based on five pillars: recognition, communication, camaraderie, culture, and performance.
