There are different ways to motivate workers and employees. Some are able to motivate themselves, while some need a form of external encouragement. Working for a company that you believe in, or doing a job that you really love are the two best situations that a working adult can ever have. However, even the most dedicated and passionate individuals need some sort of motivation in time, especially if they’ve been doing the same kind of work for a long time. Here’s where appreciation trophies and awards come in handy.
Depending on the company administration, awards for motivation can be given on a monthly, quarterly, biannually, or yearly basis. Titles like “Employee of the Month” or “Highest Sales” are some of the titles and acknowledgments that we are familiar with. The awards can come in many other forms, too. This is the company or the employer’s way to let the workers know that hard work, loyalty, and dedication to the job still matters no matter how long they’ve been there. Incentives may also come with these accomplishments, through material gifts, monetary bonuses, or even promotions.
Not everybody receives these awards all the time, so these can also boost the individual’s self-esteem and renew their drive for the work that they do. Appreciation trophies and awards are merely concrete proof that the company values its best employees, it is the sentiment behind it – the real “appreciation” – that counts the most.
