The Incentive & Engagement Solutions Providers (IESP) is a Strategic Industry Group of the Incentive Marketing Association (IMA).
In 2015 the IMA Board of Directors approved this new Strategic Industry Group (SIG) to add to the IMA structure. The Incentive & Engagement Solution Providers (IESP) was born from the collaboration of three previous SIGs; the Global Incentive Council (GIC), the Performance Improvement Council (PIC), and the Recognition Council (RC). These three SIGs shared many of the same goals and core competencies and it was the collective belief of the leadership of these SIGs that combining their efforts would make their members stronger together and, most importantly, help members better serve their target end-user audience. Collectively focusing on the end-user and being able to create more white papers and educational content for them would also significantly advance IMA’s goals for the incentive and engagement end-user buyer.
The IESP launched January 1, 2016 with a new membership structure and updated goals.
