How to Show Appreciation through 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.

In order to ensure the productivity and happiness of your employees, you need to award them for the superlative job they are doing and let them know it is appreciated and invaluable. 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.

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. Words like “superior” and “first-rate” are suitable for such awards. After all, you would not be handing out the awards in the first place if the recipients did not do an outstanding job.

Spend some time deliberating on the design.

Unleash your creative side. Make sure that the award material is in harmony with the mood of the award occasion whether it is elegant and formal or light and fun. The branding or image of your company should be reflected in the award’s design.

Put in some punch to the award.

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

Befittingly bestow the award.

An award means nothing if it is not 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.

Set your sight on making the awarding special

Presenting the award in a company meeting will ensure that your model employee will get a healthy round of applause. If you would rather confer the award privately, you can make it special by treating the recipient to lunch or dinner.
