About Davene, Inc.

History

Davene Inc. began as a partnership of Gene Dierkes and his two sons, David and Dan. The company started out developing recognition awards programs and has since expanded the scope to include promotional products and concepts as well. We specialize in effective ways for a company to GET RECOGNITION and GIVE RECOGNITION.

The name Dierkes has its roots in German heritage meaning "The Keeper of the Keys!" Thus we use the three key symbol of our logo representing the founding family as well as the individuals responsible for its inception and growth. The three keys also represent our commitment to the three elements of developing successful programs - Ingenuity, Quality and Service. Using craftsmanship and flexibility in meeting any recognition and promotional need gives us the title - THE AWARD CENTER.

To complete the symbolism, we have developed the logo with the overall shape of a key. From its inception to the present, DAVENE, INC. is your KEY to meeting recognition award needs.

Davene, Inc. -- an idea in the mind of a family committed to - Ingenuity - Quality - Service - proudly living up to the name - The Award Center!

 

Motivation and Recognition Philosophy

We should try to find some way to commend our employees every day. Praise to a human being represents what sunlight, water and soil are to a plant; the environment in which he or she grows best. They do not just want it. They need it as they need air to breathe. Praise your employees and watch them grow.

How this is done can vary and depend on the specific needs, but WHY it should be done is important to understand.
WHEN YOUR PEOPLE FEEL:
Important to the company
Like they are making a contribution
"A part of the Team"
and most importantly...APPRECIATED
They will go the extra mile every time for you and the company!

Creating an atmosphere of appreciation is a key element in the philosophy behind recognition and motivation. Simply put, it is important to invest in the well being of your greatest asset - YOUR PEOPLE.
