Knowing the total budget amount allotted and a good estimate of the number of recognition awards that will be given each year, you can calculate the per person dollar value to safely spend on each recognition gift. It is essential to establish a set value for the recognition program's awards to ensure each recipient is receiving equal recognition for any given award.
Make Recognition Award Program Goals Relevant and Attainable
By aligning the goals of your organization with the recognition program objectives, you can ensure the employee award program is working to help achieve company goals. For example, if you are looking to increase employee engagement, then recognizing and rewarding employees for outstanding performances and for reaching milestone anniversaries will help to accomplish employee engagement goals.
Decide whether the recognition program should be in print, online or both
Depending on employee preferences, recognition awards can be printed and personally presented or employees can access the program through a recognition program website. Regardless of the type of recognition program you decide to implement, Awards Network recognition award programs always include mail-in and online redemption options.
A successful employee recognition program is flexible enough to meet the needs of any demographic and can also ensure ease of use if your company has employees working in different locations, in the field or from home. By combining print and online recognition program components and offering recipients redemption via mail or online, you can rest assured that employees have easy access to the recognition program.
Plan the Award Presentation
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.
Follow up on Recognition Program Success
Reporting capabilities need to be discussed to ensure that you can track the progress and acknowledge successes stemming from the employee award program. At the end of a year or the program itself, quantifiable results should be available to substantiate the employee recognition program budget. Awards Network recognition programs include complimentary recognition program status reports which include all of the redemption details.
