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. Acknowledging your employees goes a long way in cultivating a culture of gratitude. As long as employees are aware that their hard work is being observed and valued, they will continue working harder without hesitation.
If you want to sustain the satisfaction and productivity of your employees, you have to give them awards for a job well done and make them see that their efforts are valued and vital. So how do you award those who are doing exceptional work in your company?
The number one method for presenting employee awards or sales awards is with engraved awards. They are compelling and timeless, and can even be personalized with the right design and language. Continue reading on how to come up with a memorable award.
Verbalize with style.
A noteworthy engraved award includes all pertinent details such as the name of the awardee, his or her achievement, and the date it was given. To make it unforgettable, some imagination is needed. So how can you make your award for your employees exceptional? Use superlatives in the text. Words like “superior” and “first-rate” are suitable for such awards. The reason there is an award in the first place is because the recipients did some outstanding feats.
Spend some time deliberating on the design.
Come up with something original. Choose wood or steel to match the importance of the award or the occasion – be it light and fun or elegant and formal. The design of the award should correspond with the image or branding of your company.
Present the award with a bang.
Making the powers-that-be signatories in the award will give it some clout. Ask for the signatures of the president of the company and of the head of the department along with that of the team members, if appropriate.
Confer the award properly.
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. Personally present the award to your employee to emphasize your appreciation and the significance of his or her accomplishment.
Make the occasion special.
Hand out the award to your model employee at a company meeting so he or she can be properly lauded. If a one-on-one award presentation is more appropriate, you can treat your award winner to lunch or dinner to make it more special.
