A Guide to Effective Employee Awards or Sales Awards
Whether it is the newbie in the mail room or a veteran sales manager, every person under your employ expects to be acknowledged for his or her work and receive some appreciation for the efforts he or she puts in every day for the advancement of your business. It is one way to establish 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.
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. 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. They are compelling and timeless, and can even be personalized with the right design and language. Below are some helpful tips for an award to remember.
Be creative what you put into words.
A lasting engraved award should contain the following details: the name of the recipient, the achievement, and the date it was awarded. A bit of imagination can make the award more impressive. So how can you make your award for your employees exceptional? Use superlatives in the text. 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.
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 design of the award should correspond with the image or branding of your company.
Pack the award with some oomph.
Give the award some prestige by making a distinguished higher-up or two sign it. You can ask the company president and the employee’s manager to sign the award along with the team members, if appropriate.
Confer the award properly.
As an honor, an award is meant to be celebrated and made known. You will be doing the awardee and yourself a disservice by simply placing the award in the recipient’s cubicle. 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.
Make the effort to turn the awarding into something 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.
