Awards Program

Interested in applying for and attaining awards and recognitions to celebrate your organization’s hard work and successes? Barten & Associates, LLC offers turnkey solutions coupled with comprehensive support services.

Barten & Associates, LLC provides:

  • Award and recognition research. We develop a customized list of potential awards and recognitions tailored to your organization’s needs, desires and strengths. At-a-glance summaries combined with detailed application requirement descriptions help your leadership team conveniently evaluate and select the most appropriate honors to pursue. Opportunities and requirements change annually and sometimes drastically. Barten & Associates’ research and recommendation services eliminate the tedious and time consuming research process, allowing your team to focus on critical business processes without interruption.
  • Application writing, editing and submission services. Many applications include very specific submission requirements and prep work, costing organizations valuable time and taking employees away from their core business of servicing customers. Barten & Associates alleviates this, making an awards program easy to implement and rewarding.
  • Tailored internal consultations to help clients evaluate and implement internal policies and achieve stretch goals in line with the latest quality and workplace engagement research. By aligning company goals with leading-edge research, Barten & Associates’ clients achieve enhanced results, improve customer satisfaction and better position their firms for continued awards and recognitions. Many clients consider an annual evaluation a key component of their strategic planning and budgeting processes.
