Tips for Giving Employee Awards or Sales Awards
Every person under your employ, whether he or she is a simple receptionist or a very experienced manager, looks forward to you recognizing them for their work and appreciating the efforts they put in their jobs for the success of your business. Such recognition will go a long way in promoting a culture of gratefulness. As long as employees are aware that their hard work is being observed and valued, they will continue working harder without hesitation.
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. 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. Such awards are timeless and tasteful, and can even be fun with the right wording and design. Continue reading on how to come up with a memorable award.
Verbalize with style.
A lasting engraved award should contain the following details: the name of the recipient, the achievement, and the date it was awarded. To make it unforgettable, some imagination is needed. 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.
Give careful consideration to 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 award’s design should reflect the image or branding of your company.
Present the award with a bang.
Give the award some prestige by making a distinguished higher-up or two sign it. 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 your recipient and yourself an injustice by just leaving the award on the awardee’s worktable. 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.
Set your sight on making the awarding 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.
