History

In 2002, a few wise leaders sat around a table and discussed how to revolutionize the loyalty industry. These leaders interviewed and listened to influencers, C-Suite executives, and front-line company representatives across multiple industries, blending their needs together to create Energy 2 Engage (E2). E2 has worked with the biggest and most innovative companies in their respective industries, harnessing customers and employees desire to be loyal to a brand through rebate, reward, and recognition programs.

To date, E2 has issued over $400 million rebate, reward, and recognition dollars allowing our partners to generate hundreds of millions in new sales revenue and keep their employee base engaged.

E2’s mission statement is “To create value and make a difference everywhere we engage by helping organizations grow their people and performance.” This starts in-house. A culture has been created that engages from the inside out at E2. Whether it’s a team outing to support the local minor league baseball team (Go Knights!), volunteering our time to causes our employees are passionate about, or enjoying local cuisine as a group – E2 strives to be a place which takes care of its employees, who in turn take care of our clients.

WHO IS E2?

Upon initial glance, you might think our team’s diverse background is what sets us apart. Or, maybe you think it’s our relationship with QuintEvents. We like to think what makes E2 stand out in a crowd is the fact that we have been there for our clients through multiple economic cycles and continue to deliver for them. We know what works best and are excited to grow together.

  • We know you want to exceed both your sales and people goals – that’s what we are here to do.
  • We keep your budget in mind, we assist you in getting buy-in from your senior leadership team, and we are efficient enough to have a program up and running in a matter of weeks.
  • E2 has a plethora of tools and employee experience to assist with identifying the root issues at hand, create programs to solve the issues, and execute the programs.
  • As an extension of your team, let us shoulder the administrative burden – feel free to be as hands-on or hands-off as you like.

Who are our clients?

Our clients enjoy the unique partnership we have in place. The spotlight and recognition belong on the client, not E2. We typically do not name our clients or the growth strategies we have in place with them.

What we can say, though, is that if you look around your home, office, garage or favorite retailer, you use or interact with our clients’ products on a daily basis. We have long standing relationships with privately held and publicly traded clients ranging in size from Fortune 500 to Inc 5000.
