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. 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.

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 your employees for their contributions to your company?

The number one method for presenting employee awards or sales awards is with 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.

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. A bit of imagination can make the award more impressive. So how can you make your award for your employees exceptional? One way to do it is with the use of superlatives. Affirmative words like “brilliant” and “foremost” have a place in awards. 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.

Unleash your creative side. Choose wood or steel to match the importance of the award or the occasion – be it light and fun or elegant and formal. The award’s design should reflect the image or branding of your company.

Put in some punch to the award.

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 cannot just leave haphazardly the award in the recipient’s cubicle any time of the day. 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 you would rather confer the award privately, you can make it special by treating the recipient to lunch or dinner.
