Setting up an Employee Recognition Gift Program
If you need to find out what your total budget will be, multiply the number of awardees by the price level you want to give plus the cost of any printed recognition program materials. The number of employees you are awarding will stay the same but you can adjust the price level and printed material cost to see how your overall budget is impacted. You should always give the same price level to people achieving the same goal. You can adjust part time employee price levels and make them less than a full time employee price levels.
There are 4 different recognition program options Awards Network offers, ranging in customization and price. Awards Network can print and ship orders to employee’s homes, multiple work locations or a single one. We can also make your program completely online, which is usually preferred by clients who have employees working out of many different locations and telecommuting.
The size and structure of an organization usually determines how employee awards are presented. Annual award events are one recognition presentation idea that is more formal and allows company leaders to provide public recognition to employees. Alternatively, if a large gathering is not feasible, you may want to have supervisors personally present the employee’s award or to individually mail recognition awards to employees’ homes. If the employee service award program is set up to award for many different achievements, a variety of presentation techniques, depending on each award’s level of formality and/or frequency, may be incorporated.
