Break Out The Balloons & Re-Energize Your Employee Recognition Program


Keeping consumers healthy, especially from food borne illness. Not an easy task.

But it’s one that Mérieux NutriSciences takes seriously. By working with clients as a trusted partner to promote public health through analysis, consulting, auditing, training, contract research and sensory analysis services, they’re accomplishing their mission worldwide.

The company has grown rapidly over the last years and is now present in 21 countries with over 80 laboratories. Mérieux NutriSciences is increasing its presence in emerging countries, in particular in China, Brazil, Turkey, South Africa and India, with the purpose of answering these countries’ growing demands.

It’s vision is consumers’ well-being and health. That’s why they strive to provide the best services to their clients to prevent health hazards.

Mérieux NutriSciences knows that to keep their mission and vision moving forward, they also need to recognize and reward staff.

That’s why they break out the balloons when it comes to their employee recognition programs.

Why use balloons?

Balloons are bright and colorful. They lift people’s spirits.


“We use these balloons to re-energize our recognition program for our employees. We blow up the balloons to celebrate monthly and quarterly awards as well as anniversaries”, noted Megan Irvine, HR Business Partner.

“We tie them to employees’ desks so everyone knows to congratulate them throughout the day.”
Mérieux NutriSciences’ awards are given to employees who are either upholding the company’s values (Excellence, Initiative, Integrity, Accountability), being leaders and setting an example to other employees, or they are for employees who go above and beyond for clients, ensuring results are released on time, and that clients are getting the best possible service.

A little balloon goes a long way – especially when it comes to employee recognition.
