Hercules Trophy and CoreCentive Partner to Bring Hercules Trophy to North America


Hercules Trophy and CoreCentive Partner to Bring Hercules Trophy to North America! CoreCentive, a U.S. leader in the Human Capital Management industry, and Hercules Trophy are teaming up to bring the Hercules Trophy to the North American market. The first edition of the Hercules Trophy will take place on New York City’s Randall’s Island July 12, 2012, and is expected to attract more than 250 corporate teams and thousands of competitors looking for a balance between work, sports, health and family.

Both Hercules Trophy and CoreCentive are confident this type of competition is entering the North American market at a right moment, because it clearly delivers an answer to specific USA-issues in the workforces. In short, the economic instability in the U.S. over the past few years has left the American workforce with a general lack of trust – and this impacts team (internal) cohesion.

Koen Blanquart, CEO Hercules Trophy North America: “We have chosen CoreCentive because of their passionate belief in Human Capital and Employee Engagement. Their values and insights in the way teams behave in the corporate workplace are key.”

Steve Walter, CEO CoreCentive: “We are excited to bring the Hercules Trophy to North America. Offering world class team building events ties into our strategy of providing the marketplace and our customers with a comprehensive Human Capital Management approach. Team building events increase morale, drive engagement and an employee’s happiness factor.”

“The expansion of the Hercules Trophy format to North America is an important milestone for our company, after our growth in other regions in the world,” says Yves Vekemans, President and Co-Founder Hercules Trophy International. “We deliver a service that is becoming vital in corporate life. The very specific combination of team building, networking, charity and competition appeals to the sentiment and value systems of our customers in the USA. We consider it to be a serious competitive advantage.”
