ISO Selects Rideau Recognition as First Recognition Provider to Help Create Global Employee Engagement Standards

June 14, 2017 (New York, NY) - Rideau Recognition, Inc., a global leader in employee recognition solutions, has joined ISO (The International Organization for Standardization) to help create and regulate global engagement best practice standards. ISO is an independent, non-governmental international organization that oversees the development and manufacturing of products and services in a variety of industries worldwide. The use of ISO standards creates efficient and standardized global processes across a number of industries.


Rideau will join the ISO employee engagement committee and will contribute its 105-years of expertise and thought leadership in recognition, engagement, and human capital management. “ISO understands the value and need of appreciating employees and creating a culture of respect and empowerment”, says Peter W. Hart, Rideau CEO. “ISO’s quality management principles align very closely with what we already know to be true to attain business success. Its engagement principles mirror the best practices that we have been using with our client partners to help move their key performance indicators in the right direction to the benefit of organizations and their employees”, says Hart.


ISO has published over 21,000 agreements containing specific criteria that are used as guidelines. The standards, if followed, can have a profound influence on how businesses are run and how employees are treated. Because the world’s leading thought leaders are invited to serve on ISO committees, the standards that are produced are widely accepted as the final word on processes and procedures.“ISO has done a noble job in defining employee engagement and advocating the rationale and key benefits of a culture that encourages and values all people”, says Hart. “We are honored to be the first employee recognition company invited to work on an ISO committee and look forward to positively influencing the way employees are treated and their work environments all around the world.”
