Tips for Giving 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 your employees for their contributions to your company?
A preferred way of presenting employee awards or sales awards is through engraved awards. Engraved awards are timeless and effective, and can even be witty with the right design and wording. Below are some helpful tips for an award to remember.
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. An extraordinary award would require a bit of imagination. So how do you make your employee’s award out of the ordinary? You can make use of 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.
Give careful consideration to the design.
Come up with something original. 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.
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.
Present the award decorously.
As an honor, an award is meant to be 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.
You may want to give the award to your model employee at a company meeting so he or she can be publicly 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.
