Despite efforts to implement numerous traditional employee recognition programs, the client leadership realized they needed to invest in a culture where employees felt valued and appreciated. They wanted to find a solution that would resonate with their young workforce and be sustainable long-term.
X! analyzed employees’ feedback, and curated a solution with graphic novels that aimed to benefit individuals, teams, and management. Team X! developed a series of illustrated stories that featured top-performing employees’ contributions. The company distributed downloadable digital versions and Xclaymation shipped the novels to the employee’s residence to add that X-factor!
“We wanted to build a strong team and express our gratitude towards our team members. Xclaymation came up with the idea of creating employee superhero novels that we could send to their families. The results were phenomenal. I have had my employees personally approach me, communicating how touched they were by the initiative. They expressed their happiness in sharing these novels with their families, which made them feel like a real-life superhero.”– Vice President, Operations
