Get to know us better

We inspire the people that matter most to our customers' success - their employees, salespeople, channel partners and customers around the world.

Inspiring people. Delivering results.

Our mission is to turn inspiration into real results for our clients. We understand how to inspire employees, run custom sales incentives, build channel loyalty and engage customers better than anyone else. And, we have the tools and resources to help your business tap into that knowledge to drive and sustain measurable results.

BI WORLDWIDE's origins are both humble and ingenious. (We like to think that describes us pretty well.) It started with founder Guy Schoenecker discovering innovative ways to provide consumer loyalty programs and incentives to various industries. That idea caught on, big time. It grew into what is now a multinational company serving Global 2000 corporations in over 140 countries in more than 20 languages.

In spite of our size, we haven't lost sight of our core purpose: To deliver measurable results that truly have a positive impact for our clients and their businesses.

A global company

Our U.S. headquarters is located in Minneapolis, Minnesota. We have more than 25 sales offices throughout the U.S. and headquarters around the world in Australia, BrazilCanada, China, India, Latin America, Singapore and the United Kingdom. Our worldwide network of offices and partnerships not only give us unmatched local resources but also enable us to deliver culturally relevant programs and solutions no matter where our customers and their employees are located. That's priceless.

What makes us different

How did we get to be so good at inspiring people and delivering results? Experience is part of it, but it also stems from our unique approach to building solutions. We design and deliver customizable employee, sales, channel and customer solutions that are grounded in the science of behavioral economics.

In other words, we look at how thought and emotion combine to drive human decisions and behavior. We don't have to guess at what might motivate your employees or customers, because we use scientific research and data to determine what will really inspire them. Then we act on it.
