HALO Recognition

Raising Visibility in a Crowded HR Technology Market

An employee recognition company serving the Fortune 500, HALO Recognition wanted to raise the visibility of the company’s rewards and recognition solutions among HR and employee engagement decision makers. To help the company stand out in this highly competitive market, Young & Associates developed a strategic public relations program that leverages content marketing, case studies and industry events to build media relationships for HALO Recognition and secure valuable media coverage.

An HR Industry Thought Leader

Garnering ongoing interviews and byline article opportunities for HALO Recognition’s senior team, the agency has successfully positioned the company as a recognition thought leader. This includes media coverage in leading business and HR publications. By creating and fostering relationships with several editors, Young & Associates has helped establish VP Cord Himelstein as a regular media contributor on HR issues and publications now regularly republish Himelstein’s blog posts.

Success Stories Highlight Company Strengths

Through strategic media pitching and case study promotion, the agency has helped the company achieve cover stories with Incentive Magazine and HRO Today. These media opportunities have been a valuable platform for HALO Recognition to share the benefits of their recognition programs, especially in the healthcare sector, which is one of HALO Recognition’s industry specialties. Young & Associates also promotes infographics, market briefs, eBooks and blog posts to generate increased visibility.
