The Most Popular Employee Award Titles

Celebrating all the standout performers who go the extra mile is a must. Each year is another opportunity to recognize your employees for their efforts and loyalty to your growing business. Organizing an award banquet also acts as an element of motivation for newcomers to give their best in the future. Getting people excited about all the unique corporate gifts they can win can create tons of excitement. Award ceremonies like these can also promote healthy competition in the workplace.

While it’s always amazing to recognize the accomplishments of your employees, it’s important to make each award feel unique, so it truly feels personal to them. It’s important to craft awards, gifts, and swag that truly reflect their personality. A well-liked gift can pay dividends in productivity so, if you’re looking for exciting and fresh award titles for upcoming award ceremonies, you’ll find some of our favorite tags below that accentuate your personalized, engraved awards and trophies.

Performance Awards

It’s time to come alive and to shine! An award ceremony is a great reason to dress up, celebrate and let loose with colleagues and supervisors alike — all under one roof! One of the best ways to celebrate performance is to award it. Sometimes there are employees who do a fantastic job and go above and beyond, often asking for nothing in return. Why not reward  their exceptional performances with unique engraved crystal awards that highlight their efforts? Or how about a personalized clock to thank them for their time put into the company?

Whatever award you choose, make sure the title is better than “Best Performer!” Boring. Go for something bold that truly recognizes their efforts. Some of the most commonly recognized performance awards go the following:

  • Employee of the Month or Year
  • The Mountain Mover
  • The Conqueror
  • The GOAT (Greatest Of All Time)
  • Most Improved Performer

Tenure or Retirement Awards

Time is of the essence. In today’s work environment, it can be difficult to find someone who is loyal and willing to grow with your new business venture. But time and experience in the same company, year after year, eventually works in their favor. Some employees may eventually hit retirement in the same business after several decades of service.

Some of our favorite gifts to give to retirees are engraved crystal plaques which make their accomplishments within the company shine. Another corporate gift that retiree’s love is silver retirement trays which sport hand engraved signatures from their colleagues. Trays like these can be proudly displayed with signatures encompassing a beautiful award title that will remind them of their most important moments at the company.

Here are some award title examples for the experienced and loyal employees:

  • Company Excellence Award
  • Outstanding Service Year After Year
  • Most Loyal and Determined
  • Exemplary Performance
  • Motivated and Loyal MVP
  • Most Valued Awards

Sure, performance awards are always a hit. Retirement and seniority are also widely recognized. But it shouldn’t end there. Employees who are punctual, never take time off, and are fair to others should also get some kind of recognition that’s worth showing off. These employees bring about good behavior and motivation from their colleagues, making them valuable assets as your company continues to grow to new heights.

Employees who consistently provide results should be treated with unique corporate gifts that can add to their workflow. One amazing gift that recipients adore is business card holders for their desk. If your recipient is constantly meeting new clients and contractors, why not give them a business card holder so they always know who to contact next. Just like crystal plaques or personalized clocks, business card holders can be engraved with a  name and a slick award title to remind them of how much the company values them.

When it comes to pointing out value, go as specific as possible. Here are some corporate award titles focusing on values that your employee might have:

  • The Trend Setter
  • Business Motivator
  • Social Butterfly Award
  • The Go-Getter
