A couple of years back, Eli Lilly Canada was somewhat stuck when it came to its recognition program. The pharmaceutical company had a paper-driven process with divisional awards throughout the company, along with service anniversary milestones.

There was also a committee that had to find the time to come together and review all the nominations to select the winners, says Karen McKay, vice-president of human resources at the Toronto-based company.
