Tips for Giving 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. 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.
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?
One way to do it is to give engraved awards whether as sales awards or as employee awards. They are compelling and timeless, and can even be personalized with the right design and language. Consider the following tips to come up with a standout award.
Make the text exquisite.
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 award stand out from the rest? One way to do it is with the use of superlatives. 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. 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.
Put in some punch to the award.
Making the powers-that-be signatories in the award will give it some clout. You can request the president of the company to sign the award along with the employee’s department head and also the team members, if appropriate.
Befittingly bestow the award.
Receiving an award is an honor that should 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. Personally present the award to your employee to emphasize your appreciation and the significance of his or her accomplishment.
Make the effort to turn the awarding into something special.
Hand out the award to your model employee at a company meeting so he or she can be properly lauded. If the award is best conferred one-on-one, treating your award winner to lunch or dinner will make it more special.
