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. Acknowledging your employees goes a long way in cultivating a culture of gratitude. 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. So how do you award those who are doing exceptional work in 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.

Verbalize with style.

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? You can make use of superlatives in the text. Affirmative words like “brilliant” and “foremost” have a place in 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.

Be artistic. 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.

Pack the award with some oomph.

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.

Present the award decorously.

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. 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

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.
