How the award is presented enhances the perceived value of the achievement and the award.
Make the presentation a personal experience for the recipient, recognize their effort, loyalty and achievement.
Presenting the award before the recipients peers not only puts the recipient in the spotlight but shows everyone present that the company puts value in the effort and the achievement, can motivate others to achieve.
The award should come from your company and not be something the recipient has to buy, there is no trophy value in something the recipient buys. People never forget who gave them a gift of personal value nor how they earned it, you can’t get that from a gift card or cash.
Use award selections that reflect positively on the values of your organization.
There are additional ideas we can assist you with including training for your managers on the value of recognition and the presentation.
