Next Level Performance

A Dittman Company

Our company was founded in 1976 by Jim Dittman. He wanted to create a place where he would want to work – not necessarily a big company, but a great company. In the years since, we have grown into a vibrant organization focused on helping companies move their people to the next level. That’s why we decided to rebrand our company in 2016. We changed the name from Dittman Incentive Marketing to Next Level Performance, to best reflect what we do for our clients, and for our employees, every day.

Whether it’s a white-glove incentive travel program, an engaging employee platform, or an exciting sales campaign, everything we do is to help your company and its people Achieve More. We offer a unique blend of strategic insight and value. Our full suite of solutions and rewards can be easily implemented, and scaled to fit the budget and scope of the project. Every solution is grounded in over 40 years of experience, guided by the latest research on motivation and engagement, and driven by front-line managers.

In the Community

Contributing to our community is integral to our company values. Taking inspiration from the NY Yankees, we Help Others Persevere and Excel by donating time and resources during our annual HOPE Week. From volunteering at a summer camp for homeless kids, to assembling First Night kits for displaced families, every member of the team contributes. Among other initiatives, an annual donation is made in the name of each teammate to the charity of their choice. And at the holidays we invite our team to donate to a charity selected from a drawing of teammate recommendations, to be matched by the company. At Next Level Performance, we care about our clients, we care about our colleagues, and we care about our community. We are honored to be able to give back, individually and as an organization.
