Covanta’s ILIFT (Innovation, Leadership, Initiative, Flexibility and Teamwork) Employee Recognition Program helps to create a culture of appreciation at Covanta.

Using social media elements, the platform lets individuals see the various recognitions earned by co-workers, make comments and offer their own accolades in realtime. ILIFT operates on a point-based system, enabling participants to earn points, which can be redeemed for prizes, for each type of recognition received. The points may be accumulated over time and cashed in for rewards of increased value. Participants can even display their ILIFT awards using a “trophy case” feature in which badges and honors that pertain to goals, recognition, years of service and life events may be shared.
