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.
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. 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.
Be creative what you put into words.
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 employee’s award out of the ordinary? You can make use of 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.
Deliberate long and hard 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.
Making the powers-that-be signatories in the award will give it some clout. 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.
Befittingly bestow the award.
As an honor, an award is meant to be celebrated and made known. You cannot just leave haphazardly the award in the recipient’s cubicle any time of the day. Hand over the award personally to underscore your appreciation and the importance of what the employee had accomplished.
Set your sight on making the awarding 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.
