Our last blog, 6 Essential Elements of a Service Award Program, provided essential components that create motivation and show heartfelt appreciation to your employees. We believe that these elements about service awards are also applicable to Sales and Safety awards.
Times change and so have award program. They have evolved to make achieving these recommended elements easy for companies to offer. As a reminder, awards should:
- Be functional
- Potentially suitable for use at home
- Have recurring value
- A high perceived value
- And focus on specific recognition levels – meaning the award should match what the person is being awarded for!
Let Your Employee Choose
This is a tall order to fill. How can we create a type of award that would meet all of these criteria for varying individuals with different tastes? Today recognition programs have been designed to do just that…meet the individual’s taste by letting them choose.
Now you can create a program for your company that provides useful, useable, and desired gifts for your employees that:
- Keep your company top of mind with logos added to the items chosen
- Provide varying levels of merchandise values for varying levels of service or performance.
- Are created especially for your company with materials created for you employees to choose from.
- And service to handle all of the gift packaging and delivery.
HR Manager Benefits
Human resource managers have a huge role in every company. They are tasked with helping operating managers recruit, onboard, pay, train, and manage benefits for all of the company’s employees. It is logical that they would support the operating managers in employee recognition also.
The HR manager is faced with logistics challenges with the varying needs of different departments and the desire to truly please the employees with the award. It may feel daunting.
It may also be intimidating to imagine setting up a whole turnkey program. However, the impact to your department team will be much less in the long run and with services such as ours, we can make the program set-up as painless as possible.
Take a Peak
Just to spark your imagination, see a few pictures of the items one of our customers chose for their organization:
Jewelry is a very popular choice among employees. There are a large number of selections at different prices allowing employers to have a jewelry selection at every level of their program.
An example of the items one customer chose for their 10 year service awards. Versatile and fun for an outdoor person.
Beautiful timepieces for a 40 year award. Yes, people still stay at one company for 40 years! Or maybe they have a 40 years of safe practices and no safety incidents on their record.
And charming home décor that the whole family can enjoy make for a wonderful 20 year recognition or a Top Salesperson of the Year Award.
These are just a few ideas of rich catalogues that could be created for your company and provide an organized, simple, but unique program to recognize all levels of performance and service.
