How to Show Appreciation through Employee Awards or Sales Awards

From the office janitor to the head of the sales department, every person working for you looks forward to being recognized for his or her work and be appreciated for the efforts he or she exerts day after day for the success of your company. 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 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. Continue reading on how to come up with a memorable award.

Verbalize with style.

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. 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.

Come up with something original. The material, whether wood or steel, should jibe with the mood of the award occasion – be it solemn and elegant or light and colorful. The design of the award should correspond with the image or branding of your company.

Present the award with a bang.

Give the award some prestige by making a distinguished higher-up or two sign 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.

Befittingly bestow the award.

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.

You may want to give the award to your model employee at a company meeting so he or she can be publicly lauded. If the award is best conferred one-on-one, treating your award winner to lunch or dinner will make it more special.
