One of the challenges that employers face on consistent basis is finding ways to keep their employees motivated and focused. According to research, one of the most effective modalities for motivating employees is to acknowledge their accomplishments. Verbal acknowledgment of achievements has benefits, but it is important to mix it up and stay away from comfort zone in which you acknowledge your employees will appreciate.
When you have an exceptional employee, you should reward them for their remarkable effort and accomplishments with something tangible in nature, something that will be symbolic of who they are and what they have achieved
When employees have displayed loyalty to your company, especially in an era in which it is acceptable to jump ship to run to the highest bidder, it is imperative to acknowledge their outstanding contributions to the company. This not only shows appreciation for the work and loyalty of the employee going un-noticed, but it also motivates new employees to strive to reach the same benchmarks and goals. A good time to praise employees for their accomplishments is on their birthday. You will want the gift or reward provided to be unique and somewhat personal. While there are a number of ways to personalize a gift, showing interest in their life outside of the office demonstrates that you see them as more than an employee. Try giving them a customize kitchen cutting board. Cutting Boards USA offers a wide variety of Maple, Cherry and Walnut cutting boards and will be privileged to contribute to your employee’s gift.
Retirement awards are immensely important. When an employee has put in the work and dedication to finally reach the point of retirement, it is extremely important that you make sure that they and coworkers are aware of how much you appreciate their sacrifices. This can be done through a retirement dinner off-site, where the employee will be presented with a retirement plaque and a gift.
Your employees are the core element of your business. How they perform will determine the level of service that your customers will receive.
