crosscheckCrossCheck has launched a quarterly sales contest to reward its best-performing sales people. The inaugural competition began January 1 and ends March 31. Sales teams in CrossCheck’s Petaluma, Calif. and Irving, Texas offices are eligible. Next quarter's contest begins April 1.

"The efforts of our sales people enhances our public image," said Senior Vice President of Sales Charles Dortch III, "and these sales contests encourage longevity and commitment from our highly valued employees."

Salespeople placing first, second and third in the category of highest new revenue generated during Q1 will earn prizes. This contest is a part of a larger effort to recognize employees for their hard work in contributing to the ongoing success of the 35-year old company.

“Every department in our company contributes to our organizational success, but sales is the engine that powers all of us,” said Senior Vice President of Sales Al Arco. “We value our sales people and take pleasure in awarding $5,000 in prize value. Beyond the money, what truly makes this contest so special is that it recognizes our early-year sales leaders, and rewards them with wonderful vacation experiences.”

Contest Prizes — Give ‘Em What They Want

A recent survey of our sales teams indicated a preference for spending quality time with family and friends over receiving items such as electronics, gift certificates or even cash. Consequently, contest prizes are vacation-oriented.
