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. 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. 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. 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.
Make the text exquisite.
A lasting engraved award should contain the following details: the name of the recipient, the achievement, and the date it was awarded. An extraordinary award would require a bit of imagination. So how do you make your employee’s award out of the ordinary? One way to do it is with the use of superlatives. Putting positive words like “greatest” and “world-class” in awards is acceptable. 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.
Be artistic. 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.
Pack the award with some oomph.
The award will rise in stature if a powerful higher-up or two affix their signature on 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.
Present the award decorously.
Receiving an award is an honor that should 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. 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
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.
