What Wording Should You Include on Your Award?

Have you ever been the recipient of a crystal award or trophy awarded by your company? According to Forbes, an estimated 90% of employees who receive thanks or recognition from their company or boss report having a higher level of trust in the boss that shows their appreciation. Everyone likes to be thanked for a job well-done, and mementos, such as a crystal award or trophy, are an effective way to boost morale amongst your employees. If you're preparing an award, then here are a few ideas for wording that should be included.

A Message of Gratitude

If you want to recognize a team member for a specific role, be sure to include that information on the award. Language like "Our deepest appreciation for your hard work on the new product rollout" makes it crystal clear what the award is meant to recognize. Stating what the company or team is appreciative of will make the plaque, trophy, or award a lot more meaningful.

The Award Being Given

If this is an annual or seasonal recognition, you'll want that descriptor on the award too. When recognizing the efforts of your sales force, you'll want to include the quarter and year that's being recognized along with any other applicable information. If the award is for a specific sales territory or region, or for their efforts selling a new product, include those metrics. The more specific the language, the more meaningful the recognition will be.

The Name of the Organization and Recipient

Of course, you'll want to include the name of the company or organization that's presenting the award. It's also appropriate to include the department or division name too. This provides all the information needed to understand what accomplishments are being celebrated.

The Year or Date

Engraving the period being honored is a great way to mark an important occasion. In some instances, the date of the award is most appropriate. For an award that's presented each year, having the year or date inscribed is a great way to add a bit of uniqueness to each one.
