Levy Recognition is a Recognition Solutions Provider


Powering Peak Performance

Levy Recognition forges deep relationships with organizations to deliver an unmatched portfolio of recognition products and services. The Levy Difference elevates the tangible and intangible milestones of individual and organizational achievement, bolstered by 60+ years of developing distinctive offerings tailored to each customer's vision and needs. Our ultimate goal is to help brands like yours reach and achieve their greatest potential in meaningful, memorable ways.


Fueling Motivation in Everyone

Levy Recognition is a small but fast-growing company with a goal: to make people feel appreciated and valued. For decades, this goal was manifested through the creation of memorable custom awards. In recent years we witnessed a major problem unfolding; companies were struggling to keep employees engaged, productive, and happy.

We envisioned a platform that integrated recognition and communication to connect people to workplace goals and values that would be effective for companies of all sizes and industries. We wanted to put the employee back in the employee experience.  Elevate   was created from the belief that recognition should be embedded in all aspects of a business to create a fully aligned and engaged culture.

By helping companies connect their people to a shared purpose and making them feel valued, employees are empowered to do their best work.

While "innovation" may be a buzz word, it really is at the heart and soul of everything we do. From our updated and unique award designs and solutions to continually updating and perfecting our employee engagement solution, we never stop creating.

Levy is a fast-growing company, and we are proud of the quality of service we offer to our clients. Our growth is backed by a close network of strategic partnerships, giving our clients the best of both worlds. By positioning ourselves this way, we are able to provide companies of all sizes access to dynamic athlete and employee recognition programs that are both affordable and scalable.
