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. It is one way to establish 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.
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. The question now is how to award the model employees 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. 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. Putting positive words like “greatest” and “world-class” in awards is acceptable. The reason there is an award in the first place is because the recipients did some outstanding feats.
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 branding or image of your company should be reflected in the award’s design.
Present the award with a bang.
The award will rise in stature if a powerful higher-up or two affix their signature on it. 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.
Confer the award properly.
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.
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 a one-on-one award presentation is more appropriate, you can treat your award winner to lunch or dinner to make it more special.
