How We Work

Research & Evaluation

We dig in and understand our clients and their markets. We identify issues regarding employees, customers and if necessary, channel marketing partners. And lastly, analyze and understand your needs, objectives and budgets.


Based on our research we will generate ideas, recommend targeted and holistic solutions, and identify potential marketing partners in an effort to address your pain points, budgets and marketing objectives.


Armed with the agreed upon strategies, we will coordinate our own efforts as well as those of any identified partners to ensure every touch-point produces the maximum impact toward your retention marketing goals.

We're in the business of building long-term relationships.

It's our hope that by cementing your relationship with your employees, we'll also cement our relationship with you. To that end, the work doesn't stop when the program launches. We will thoroughly analyze the program results and ROI and then recommend and execute adjustments to match changing conditions.

Single Source. Unlimited Resources.

Our network of exceptional marketing partners equips us to manage every project, regardless of its size, with the same level of ease, efficiency, and meticulous attention to detail that you've grown accustomed to. This capability empowers The S-Group Inc. to offer the services required to ensure the success of your employee engagement and motivation program.
