Serving 3,000+ global brands in over 100 countries

We’ve been around for a long time – with a rich history dating back to 1892 as the nation’s first employee recognition company. Our roots have always been in awards and recognition, but as the nature of work evolves, so does Engage2Excel. We continue to innovate and develop solutions that drive engagement and validate the business impact for today’s workforce. Engage2Excel has grown into a leading career experience company providing recruitment, onboarding, employee recognition, manager development and employee survey solutions tailored to each organization and designed to help clients find and keep their talent.


The future is bright. Rideau is now Engage2Excel

In 2019, Rideau, Inc, a global leader in recognition solutions headquartered in Montreal, Canada, joined the Engage2Excel group of companies. With a century of experience, Rideau was the first company to produce many of its country’s highest recognition honors and has earned several awards for innovative HR technology and solutions – making the company a perfect fit for Engage2Excel group. After integrating its capabilities and technology, Rideau now serves clients in Canada and the U.S. under the Engage2Excel brand.
