An employee of the month plaque, to which the names of successive winners can be added over time, can be found on the walls of many businesses and organizations. Known as perpetual plaques, these public recognition boards serve to highlight not only employee dedication, talent and hard work, but also the appreciative culture of the institutions that display them.
Employee award ideas and opportunities, and the way honors are communicated publicly, should never be treated casually. The more personalized and distinguished the recognition, the more impact it makes on the honorees and their colleagues.
Perpetual Design for Perpetual Growth
One issue with using a perpetual plaque to record winners of employee of the month or similar honors is the fact that it’s filled up only over time. So it needs to look good from the time when it first goes up and contains only a few names, to the day when all its slots are filled.
For that you want a plaque that is customized, elegant and visually arresting on its own, regardless of how many names it holds. The design should also be flexible, allowing for the list of honorees to easily be expanded as new winners are named.
It all comes down to design and quality. Gilson’s Executive Awards use only the highest quality materials. Our products feature the finest woods such as walnut, cherry, rosewood, and mahogany. Our partners include AT Cross, Bulova, Seiko and Waterford.
The Art of Recognition
We believe that for employee recognition to be meaningful, an award should be of superb quality. We treat our executive awards as works of art, designed to be loved and valued for years to come. Your best employees deserve the very best. Show your appreciation with a high quality, personalized corporate award. It reflects well on them as well as the character of a business. That’s what corporate recognition should be all about.
Recognize and Celebrate the Uniqueness of Your Team and Mission
While a perpetual award plaque to recognize your best employees recognizes the individual, more importantly, it serves to unite the team and business as a whole and inspire others to greatness. This is about more than just the individual employee; it speaks to the mission of the company as a whole. As such, it touches everyone in the organization and serves to unite them under a single mission, a single banner. That’s why it is important that the award plaque be uniquely customized to showcase the culture and spirit of the company itself.
You can use custom engraving to include, say the image of a beloved founder, a drawing of the business building, a corporate logo or an inspirational emblem of significance. You can include inspirational quotes and sayings, or perhaps special dates or anniversaries significant to the corporation. Use this as an occasion to bring your team together and celebrate company culture. We can customize your employee of the month plaque to celebrate that uniqueness of spirit.
Celebrate Years of Service
Working in and out of the office, day after day, year after year, can get repetitive. Finding that groove at the workplace can be challenging. With patience comes success and years of service should definitely be celebrated. Not only does it make the employee feel good, it also boosts motivation for those who may be newer to the corporate world. From 5 to 10, 15 to 30 years of service, we help you celebrate those with highest regards in any corporate or non-profit office.
