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. Such recognition will go a long way in promoting 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.

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. Engraved awards are timeless and effective, and can even be witty with the right design and wording. Below are some helpful tips for an award to remember.

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 can you make your award for your employees exceptional? One way to do it is with the use of superlatives. Putting positive words like “greatest” and “world-class” in awards is acceptable. 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.

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 branding or image of your company should be reflected in the award’s design.

Pack the award with some oomph.

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.

Befittingly bestow the award.

Receiving an award is an honor that should 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.

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 a one-on-one award presentation is more appropriate, you can treat your award winner to lunch or dinner to make it more special.
