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. Such recognition will go a long way in promoting a culture of gratefulness. Employees who feel that their hard work is being noticed and valued by you tend to work more with no qualms about it.
To keep those working for you productive and in high spirits, you need to award them for a job well done and make them feel that their efforts are appreciated and valuable. The question now is how to award the model employees in your company.
A preferred way of presenting employee awards or sales awards is through 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.
Be creative what you put into words.
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 employee’s award out of the ordinary? One way to do it is with the use of superlatives. Affirmative words like “brilliant” and “foremost” have a place in awards. The reason there is an award in the first place is because the recipients did some outstanding feats.
Give careful consideration to the design.
Be artistic. The material, whether wood or steel, should jibe with the mood of the award occasion – be it solemn and elegant or light and colorful. The award’s design should reflect the image or branding of your company.
Pack the award with some oomph.
The award will rise in stature if a powerful higher-up or two affix their signature on it. You can ask the company president and the employee’s manager to sign the award along with 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 your recipient and yourself an injustice by just leaving the award on the awardee’s worktable. Hand over the award personally to underscore your appreciation and the importance of what the employee had accomplished.
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.
