6 Facts About Awards Everyone Thinks Are True
How to Show Appreciation through Employee Awards or Sales Awards
From the office janitor to the head of the sales department, every person working for you looks forward to being recognized for his or her work and be appreciated for the efforts he or she exerts day after day for the success of your company. It is one way to establish a culture of gratefulness. When employees see that you take note and appreciate the hard work they put in, the more motivated they will be to work harder.
In order to ensure the productivity and happiness of your employees, you need to award them for the superlative job they are doing and let them know it is appreciated and invaluable. So how do you award those who are doing exceptional work in your company?
A preferred way of presenting employee awards or sales awards is through engraved awards. Such awards are timeless and tasteful, and can even be fun with the right wording and design. Consider the following tips to come up with a standout award.
Make the text exquisite.
An engraved award becomes meaningful when it has the recipient’s name, the achievement, and the date of the award. A bit of imagination can make the award more impressive. So how do you make your award stand out from the rest? Use superlatives in the text. Words like “superior” and “first-rate” are suitable for such awards. You would not be acknowledging your employees in the first place if they were not superb in their performance.
Spend some time deliberating on the design.
Unleash your creative side. Make sure that the award material is in harmony with the mood of the award occasion whether it is elegant and formal or light and fun. The design of the award should correspond with the image or branding of your company.
Pack the award with some oomph.
Give the award some prestige by making a distinguished higher-up or two sign it. You can request the president of the company to sign the award along with the employee’s department head and also the team members, if appropriate.
Present the award decorously.
An award means nothing if it is not celebrated and made known. You will be doing the awardee and yourself a disservice by simply placing the award in the recipient’s cubicle. Bequeath the award personally to your employee to stress how important he or she is and how appreciative you are of his or her efforts.
Make the occasion special.
Presenting the award in a company meeting will ensure that your model employee will get a healthy round of applause. If the award is best conferred one-on-one, treating your award winner to lunch or dinner will make it more special.
