Tips for Giving 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. When employees see that you take note and appreciate the hard work they put in, the more motivated they will be to work harder.

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?

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. 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. To make it unforgettable, some imagination is needed. So how do you make your employee’s award out of the ordinary? Use superlatives in the text. Affirmative words like “brilliant” and “foremost” have a place in awards. 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.

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 award’s design should reflect the image or branding of your company.

Pack the award with some oomph.

Give the award some prestige by making a distinguished higher-up or two sign it. You can ask the company president and the employee’s manager to sign the award along with the team members, if appropriate.

Present the award decorously.

Receiving an award is an honor that should be 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.

Make the occasion 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 you would rather confer the award privately, you can make it special by treating the recipient to lunch or dinner.
