Jennifer Sweda

Compensation Manager at Eaton


As with many large, global corporations, Eaton was challenged with driving a culture of recognition that made every employee — including offline workers — feel valued and appreciated.


Eaton partnered with Globoforce to launch E-STAR, its global social recognition solution. With 10 differentiated award levels, 23 languages available, and an easy mobile application, E-STAR offers a truly customized recognition experience.


Eaton saw rapid adoption of E-STAR, with 68% of employees participating in the first six months, 82% participation in year one, and sustainable 82% rates year after year thereafter.
