IRVINE, CA – MAY 24, 2022BDS Connected Solutions, LLC. today announced the official launch of CultivateEX, its latest solution to invigorate the workforce and increase business productivity. Powered by MAG, BDS’ Experiential team, CultivateEX focuses on retaining, recognizing, and rewarding employees through employee appreciation programs. CultivateEX is centered on improving company culture by creating memorable experiences that boost employee morale.  

Due to the pandemic and state of the economy, “The Great Resignation” spurred a trend of mass resignation throughout the nation. CultivateEX helps to overcome employee burnout by increasing motivation, inspiring collaboration, and improving mental health and well-being.  

Through pop-up events, employee rallies, corporate galas, and more, CultivateEX programs recognize employees for their hard work and dedication, reward their achievements, and pave the way for employee satisfaction and productivity. The programs are tailored to result in higher retention rates. 

From small teams to large audiences, CultivateEX is curated for a variety of groups. The programs provide customized experiences for employees regardless of location. Whether they are in-office employees, remote workers, or a hybrid of the two, the programs cater to employees wherever they are.  

“At BDS, we understand the impact that employee appreciation and recognition initiatives have on the workforce, company culture, and overall organization,” said Sean Ludick, President of BDS. “CultivateEX delivers long-lasting experiences that focus on the recognition of employee achievements. We partnered with a well-recognized healthcare provider by producing over 45 events and experiences that left employees feeling appreciated. 90% of employees felt a sense of accomplishment and 88% of employees were proud to work for the organization. Utilizing CultivateEX will not only improve employee engagement, satisfaction, and loyalty, but will boost performance for the organization as a whole.”  

“Employee recognition is one of the strongest influences on the culture of an organization,” said Jonathan Margolis, President & CEO of MAG. “Employees should be recognized for their everyday contributions and achievements. We are thrilled to launch CultivateEX and provide our clients with creative and innovative employee appreciation solutions.”
