Welcome to HALO Recognition

Michael C. Fina Recognition has seen many changes since it began as a family owned business in 1935, and we are thrilled to celebrate our most exciting one so far. It is our pleasure to announce that Michael C. Fina Recognition will officially become HALO Recognition on October 1, 2017.

This change has been long in the making and is the culmination of a lot of hard work. When the opportunity to merge with HALO Branded Solutions arose in 2016, the goal was to combine two great companies with similar backgrounds, values, and culture into one that is uniquely positioned to continue our current growth and trajectory in the recognition space.

Suffice to say, our name will change but our DNA remains the same. We are now even better equipped to improve engagement, culture, and brand awareness throughout the hire-to-retire employee lifecycle than ever before, with added technology, services, and products to support our existing customers. Personal service, attention to detail, and genuine human connection remain hallmarks of our company culture.

The merger is the best of both worlds, opening up new capabilities and possibilities for our customers while keeping our daily operations, experienced staff, and core values intact. By combining our companies’ respective expertise in recognition best practices, brand advocacy, promotional products, and sourcing into a single global partner, we can provide engaging programs for organizations of any size and situation. Whether it’s scalable points-based platforms, service anniversaries, sales incentives, safety awards, onboarding kits, or employee event giveaways, we have never been a more complete provider.

Starting October 1 visitors to will be redirected to our new website at, which will have an entirely new look and feel, but still feature the same great content, knowledge, and insights you’ve come to expect. We hope you’ll visit and take a look.

Also please stop by BOOTH #3631 at this year’s HR Technology Conference in Las Vegas on October 10 if you are attending, where we will be officially unveiling the new brand. Until then, thank you for your support as our company takes this exciting new step!
