For those of you that are not football fans, it's a reference to a last ditch effort - aka a long shot attempt to throw a deep pass into the end zone to win the game.

In the work place, as in sports, decorative awards serve a necessary role in motivating and shaping employee behavior.

41% lower absenteeism
42% lower turnover
70% fewer employee safety incidents
17% higher productivity
20% higher sales
21% higher profitability
