Our Story

Leading the Recognition Revolution

We are on a mission to share the secret to effective recognition to ignite more innovation, happiness, and growth in the workplace. There is an art to appreciation that goes beyond the perks. 

At Sparck we know that everyone is uniquely special in how they feel appreciated. Our team was brought together by complementary skill sets and a shared passion to create these personalized recognition moments. It's time to elevate people and change the world, one Sparck at a time.  

Sparck's ORIGIN Story

It all began when our CEO, Anna Straus, noticed her clients making large employee reward investments to improve business outcomes yet they would fall flat. This expensive disconnect sparcked her curiosity. 

Check out the personalized recognition moment that ignited Sparck and helped her uncover the secret to appreciation.
