Get to Know ME with Claire Urness

Motivation Excellence

Meet Claire Urness, from our Performance Management team! She hasn’t been with us a year quite yet, but she’s already found she feels right at home in our Schaumburg headquarters. A self-described “shy person,” we appreciate her willingness to sit down with us for this month’s Get to Know ME edition. Read on and watch our short video to learn more about Claire!

What’s your current title and how long have you been in the incentive industry?

My current title is Program Manager, and I’ve been involved in the incentive industry for a few years now.

What do you like about your job?

I enjoy the fast-paced environment of my role as a Program Manager and the constant growth it brings.

What’s something you want to share about the people you work with at Motivation Excellence?

I would emphasize the genuine sense of value and appreciation I feel working with everyone at Motivation Excellence. Everyone is so willing to share knowledge and help in any way they can, so it is hard to not feel like you are a part of a team here. 

What’s a specific moment in your history that always stands out as a defining moment, and why?

A pivotal moment in my life was when I moved to Tennessee a few years after college. At this point, my (now) husband and I were long-distance for two years while he finished graduate school, so taking the leap to move to a new state to close that distance was a very big step in our lives. 

What motivates you to accomplish things in your life (work or personal)?

I am always working on becoming a better version of myself both personally and professionally.

What do you enjoy doing outside of work?

I love spending time with my family and friends, as well as anything that gets me outdoors. 

One thing that always makes you laugh is?

My dog never fails to make me laugh with her goofy personality and constant need for attention.

What’s a bucket list item you can’t wait to cross off?

A bucket list item I’m eagerly anticipating crossing off is taking a cruise to Alaska to witness all the wildlife. 

This month, our theme for social media is Carbon Footprint Awareness. Is there anything you do to be more eco-conscious? 

We have recently started composting at our home and I’m excited to turn our food scraps into nourishment for our garden this year!
