When your employees work hard, they deserve to be recognized by awards or plaques. As an owner of a small business, I can attest that this simple motto is often overlooked. Often times, employee recognition is the last thought on the minds of most employers. With bills, sales, vendors, inventory and overhead, who has time to worry about recognizing employees? Well awards and plaques can easily be designed and purchased online; therefore, now there are no more excuses for not recognizing your employees.

The fact is that without employees, your business will grind to a halt. Without employees working hard your business will fall behind. This is why recognizing the most important assets in your company is not only important but it is absolutely vital. Present your employees with quarterly awards or engraved gifts. In most cases, these types of rewards are better than just a gift certificate or gift cards. When giving monetary gifts, the recipient will just spend it and not remember the reason the reward was given? However when awarded a plaque or engraved gifts, it will sit on their desk and remind them every time they see it.

Ever since we started our recognition programs, we found our employee retention rate increase. In my company we present quarterly engraved plaques to show my appreciation for their hard work. We also noticed competition among employees to earn the coveted Sales of the Year awards and other annual awards. My company also present service awards at the five years, 10 years, 15 years and 20 years interval. This helps recognize those who has been devoted their careers to the company.

Making employee recognition a priority is good business practice. Having a positive workplace will only increase the productivity of your business.
