NaviStone Named a 2019 Best Employer in Ohio
NaviStone was honored to be named among the 2019 Best Employers in Ohio by the Ohio SHRM State Council, Crain's Cleveland Business, and Best Companies Group. This statewide survey and awards program is designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Ohio, benefiting the state's economy, its workforce and businesses.
“Creating an environment of transparency, innovation and growth for our employees has been key to our success at NaviStone. Companies do not win awards without a great team delivering award-winning results. Our team achieves this by bringing their passion and hard work to our business each day,” says Larry Kavanagh, CEO of NaviStone. “It’s an honor to receive this award two years in a row and is a great testament to the commitment we have made to our employees and clients.”
NaviStone was awarded the Best Employers in Ohio award in 2018. Additionally, NaviStone has been recognized by the Cincinnati Business Courier’s Innovation & Technology Awards Program for two years in a row, taking home an award in the Marketing Innovation category in 2018.
“We are honored to receive this recognition and applaud all of the Ohio-based companies who are helping to keep our state’s economy thriving,” says Kavanagh.

Client Shout Out! This past April, leading direct marketers across industries gathered together at the CohereOne Catalog & Integrated Marketing Summit in Philadelphia.

The Loyalty Shift: How Acquisition Plays a Part in Loyalty Programs
It’s no surprise that loyalty programs are running stronger than ever. With the rise in AI, data and personalization, why shouldn’t these advances be used to improve the experience businesses provide to their most dedicated customers? Although, marketers see endless opportunity in these programs, this push for better and more robust experiences is ultimately coming from the customers themselves.
In fact, about 50% of loyal customers have left a company for a competitor who was able to stay more relevant and better satisfy their needs. (InMoment) Additionally, 88% of U.S. consumers want to engage with brands that are setting new standards in meeting their expectations, according to Wunderman. 56% said they feel more loyal to brands who “get me” and show a deep understanding of their priorities and preferences.
While loyalty programs are great for incentivizing your active customers, there is also a tremendous opportunity to shift the focus from pure retention to acquiring more loyalty members. Let’s not forget about bringing a new universe of these high-purchasing customers into your program. By using web-powered direct mail programs, marketers from retail, financial services, travel & hospitality and more are able to transform their website visitors into loyal customers by reaching out with a personalized, printed piece within 48 hours of their site visit. This high-touch, personalized and relevant touchpoint offers consumers just the nudge they need to join your program and a great start to a long-lasting relationship.
