Choosing the Right Employee Awards

Do you reward your employees for loyalty or a job well done? Multiple studies have found that companies who recognize their employees:

• Have a turnover rate that is 23.4% lower than companies without a recognition program.

• Have an employee frustration rate that is 28.6% lower than other companies.

• Are 12 times more likely to have strong business outcomes.

Buying Employee Awards

If you do not already have an employee recognition program in place, it is definitely time to consider implementing one. While you will have to decide what you want to reward employees for, we can help you determine how to buy the best awards. Here are a few suggestions that will help you select awards for employees they are sure to enjoy.

• Opt for something that the recipient will appreciate the value of and enjoy displaying.

• Base the size and weight of the award of the significance of the award. Obviously, you want to save your larger, more prestigious awards for big occasions.

• Personalize the award with the recipient’s name and the date, so they will always remember when and what they did to receive it.

• In a subtle manner, incorporate the company’s logo somewhere on the award.

• Do not forget to include a short, sincere message on the award expressing your gratitude to the employee for their accomplishments.

Presenting Employee Awards

When giving out rewards, it is a good idea to do it in front of employees, such as at an employee lunch or meeting. Always explain what the recipient has accomplished to receive the award, whether they had the highest sales last quarter, had the most customer compliments in the last month, or have been with the company for several years. This simply reassures your other employees that you are not playing favorites, as well as gives them something to strive for in the upcoming months.
