5 Creative Employee Recognition Ideas

When you’re working, you want to know that your efforts are appreciated. If you’re running a company, there are a multitude of ways to show that someone’s hard work has been noticed. At Woltman Trophies, we think that an employee that is recognized and singled out for what they bring to the company is going to keep working hard. Plus, they’re more likely to stick around for the long haul. So let’s take a look at some of the best ways to recognize your employees for going above and beyond.

Host a Celebratory Event

There are many events that you could host to celebrate an employee going above and beyond. An offer party complete with snacks and drinks can be a great idea, if you have the space and aren’t worried about distractions. You can even go out for a happy hour, which many of your other employees will appreciate as well. Your workers will see that you appreciate what they do for you, so they’ll be more likely to push themselves and they’ll keep doing a great job for you because they feel like their efforts weren’t in vain.

Make Work More Flexible

One way to recognize your most competent employees is by giving them some more leeway when it comes to office hours. High-performing employees could be allowed to set their hours, within reason, as a part of their reward. At the same time, giving out the occasional half day or even a full day off to the winner of a competition or an employee that consistently performs well can be a huge motivator. People need time off once in a while. Why not reward the ones that are working most diligently for it?

Support Their Favorite Charity

You can also show your appreciation for an employee by supporting a worthy cause. If they have a favorite charity, make a donation to that charity in that employee’s name when they’ve greatly exceeded your expectations. Knowing that’s a part of a rewards process can give a conscientious employee even more motivation.

Corporate Awards

We may be biased, but we think that one of the best ways that you can show your employees appreciation is through corporate awards. These are a great way to mark major work milestones or congratulate someone on a job particularly well done. Corporate awards can serve as a motivator for an employee and those that receive them hear you loud and clear. You appreciate everything they’ve on for you so far.

Ask What They Would Like

Finally, just asking what they would like for an award can make a big difference. Your workers may be able to give you an idea that you simply had not thought of. Feel free to take suggestions. They could be just what your employees need to really get motivated and give the best performance possible.
