Montreal, New York City and Bangalore, May 10th, 2010 — Rideau, leader in online employee recognition solutions, has appointed Jayanth Narayanan CRP, as head of the company’s Asia-Pacific operations.

Rideau, currently holding offices across North America, Europe and China, offers worldwide service to all of its clients. Jayanth is based in Bangalore India and his appointment will allow Rideau to respond and understand Asia Pacific’s needs at a deeper level.

The region holds an increasingly important market, a market which has shown to be both forward thinking and extremely receptive to the implementation of recognition programs for increased employee engagement, productivity, and loyalty. The region’s workplace infrastructure is also readily compatible with Rideau’s technology enabled solutions. It became natural to increase Rideau’s presence in the area to respond to this demand.

He has worked with companies such as Capital One, Ernst & Young and Hughes Network Systems in sales, business management & HR roles. Prior to joining Rideau, Jayanth was part of the leadership team and the Head of HR at Capital One’s Asia Operations. He is credited with conceptualizing and implementing a network wide branding and recognition program across Capital One’s sites in this region. Jayanth holds an MBA in HR from XLRI, Jamshedpur and a bachelor’s degree in Engineering from BITS, Pilani.

“With Jayanth’s experience in multiple functions and representing global organizations in Asia, coupled with a strong interest and passion for the art and science of Employee Recognition, he was ideally suited to lead our operations in the Asia-Pacific region,” said Peter Hart, Rideau President and CEO.

With access to over 90 countries worldwide through multiple distributions centers, multi lingual and multi currency capabilities, Rideau is able to deliver its recognition systems wherever its clients work or live.
