Employee Network was established in 1998 to have an employee discount
program that would compliment a company store owned and operated
by the founder Steve Kogan. The store operated as a convenience
for a client of Kogan's other business, Corporate Promotional Advertising
of Arizona Inc., a full service Promotional Advertising Company
est. in 1992. Several employees (about 9,000) from this client expressed
the need for a program such as we have now created. The client had
a similar program in-house with a volunteer doing the best to keep
up with the program along with job responsibilities. The idea of
The Employee Network was to bolster that program, take the pressure
off the volunteer and to turn the program into a business that would
have its own employees that could focus on the employee discount
program and nothing else.
new company would work constantly to improve the program by finding
great Advertising Partners that could recognize the power that a
large buying group could make on their business. An Employee Network
staff member would work with the Advertising Partners to create
more and better discounts, programs and specials for the employees.
This program would be designed to emulate the original company program
whereby the employee only needs to show his/her ID badge - no coupons,
books or membership fees.
The next step was creating an informational
website where the employees could find their discounts readily from
home, work or while traveling. This original program was received
wonderfully by the business as well as the employees. Soon after
inception, one of the Advertising Partners, Earnhardt's with 1,800
employees, asked why their employees could not make use of the same
program as a part of their employee benefits package. Then came
MicroAge, Insight, Super Shuttle, Pinacor, Honeywell, US Airways,
Valley Big Brothers/Sisters and several others. The Employee Network
started with 9,000 members and over-night became 500,000 members
and still growing!
Now, The Employee Network has transformed into the nation's premier employee discount program with well-over half a million members!
