It's Not too late for Employee of The Month Plaques

For those instituting an employee of the month program there are a couple things to keep in mind. They are as follows:
  1. Don't do the McDonalds polaroid on the wall thing, it does nothing for employee morale. Instead do something like this in a prominent location around your office. Setting up a nice employee of the month perpetual plaque can go great lengths towards effectively recognizing their achievements and improving staff morale.
  2. Proper Planning prevents poor outcomes. Make sure the place you recognize your employees achievements is properly chosen.
  3. Publicize the event to those who can benefit from it. Make sure that all the employees know what caused the award recipient to receive this award and what is expected of everyone in order to strive to achieve.
  4. Make this award tough to get, measurable, and worth the outcome.
People want to be recognized for their achievements and feel like they belong to something. If you make the recognition piece something that people want, something that people will remember and something people will strive for, it will make the program that much more effective.

While we sell perpetual and individual plaques, we also provide our customers with advice on setting up their recognition programs. Because often times the perpetual plaque just isn't enough.
