At Red Pin Incentives we have seen first hand both large and small corporations achieve their peak performance when their staff and distribution channels are working at their maximum potential. But, how do you achieve this with the current ‘company hopping’ mentality that both the expanding millennial job pool and the aging, and seasoned, boomers have grown so fondly of adopting?
Red Pin Incentives firmly believes you cannot only incentivize revenue-producing positions while leaving the rest of a hardworking staff annoyed and unmotivated. The whole staff contributes to the service and maintenance of clients, and so, top performers from ALL Divisions should be allowed that fabulous trip to Bali or other great rewards.
With a workforce that is all too ready to move on to the next best 9-to-5, we are here to help engage and retain with fun and authentic experiences.
We have the option of starting with fun Personality Profiling using the latest tools. Once we understand the broad strengths and personality preferences of an entire team, we build out ‘incentives’ and ‘rewards’ that are relevant to ALL company departments.
Based on our client’s budgets and timing we can create an engaging Team Building Activity, which highlights any personality differences in a fun way. This gives staff the tools to know how best to engage with peers based on both personality and generational traits.
Ultimately, to help companies drive revenue and staff excellence we produce unforgettable Travel Incentives or Annual Company Kick-Off Conferences. We have seen time and time again the morale boost within companies as employees across all the company divisions feel appreciated.
We also understand that taking a team out of the office is not always an option and that rewards and incentives need to be in place all year long to ensure a staff's commitment to hitting goals, staying motivated, and creating productive habits to achieve, or even exceed their goals.
Therefore, we are thrilled to have in our ‘tool box’ of staff & customer motivation the latest in Gamified Digital Rewards. Partnering with one of the top Digital Rewards companies, we are able to customize ‘team goals’ and ‘peer-to-peer recognition’ with instantaneous digital gift cards across 60+ top US and similar rewards in 80 countries.
Our founder, Kelly Ditta, is the epitome of a ‘people person’ and has always loved the agency side of the corporate world where she produced experiential events spanning across technology, electronics, finance, media, sports, fashion, and medical sectors.
After helping many Fortune 500 companies for 25+ years to sell their products and motivate their staff through live events of all sizes, Red Pin Incentives was formed to bring together the most current and effective tactics for the Workforce of the Future and help companies create Sales Growth with Loyal and Incentivized Customers.
'Jobs fill their pockets, but traveling fills their souls.'
At Red Pin Incentives, we are passionate about completely immersing ourselves in destinations near and far, those which top lists, and those much less traveled...

Project Manager, Global Events
Making the very best of a rainy day while on her honeymoon in San Sebastian, Spain, with not one, but two, gelatos. Her enthusiasm is contagious, and you will love working with her and the rest of her project team.
Sarah is an Atlanta girl, Southern by birth, and Texan by choice. After getting her degree in Hospitality Management from Ole Miss, she moved to Austin, Texas and has spent the last decade in events and sales roles in downtown Austin’s high volume, convention market.
After years of managing the events team for Marriott’s first ever dual-branded hotel and producing events for SXSW, Formula One, numerous Fortune 500 clients, Sarah moved to the sales side and excelled in various corporate and association markets, ranking as a Platinum Top 10% Performer. Most recently, she was a Market Senior Sales Manager for two of Austin’s newest properties - The Westin Austin Downtown & Aloft/Element Austin Downtown.
While sales helped to build a more robust professional toolbox, it was events that has always had Sarah’s heart, and a serendipitous opportunity fell into her lap when she joined the HSMAI Austin board and was able to work up close and personal with Kelly. In a sort of “love at first event planning’, it was clear…Sarah was destined to join the Red Pin team.
She loves building relationships with clients and producing unforgettable events. She is organized like no other, loves providing small delights, and luckily, has an extensive knowledge of hotel sales and events operations, procedures, and most importantly, contracts.
Let her be your secret weapon to negotiate the best terms for YOU when it comes to sourcing for your event.
