Recognize Your Employees with Beautiful Plaques


Your employees are important to you, and making them all feel appreciated for their hard work is a great way to retain employee satisfaction. A plaque hung in the honor of staff who go above and beyond in the work they do is one way you can do this. The following are suggestions for the many ways you can use plaques to increase employee morale in your establishment.

Go beyond employee of the month

Employee-of-the-month plaque incentives is overdone, and the special attention given to a single employee can make others feel unappreciated or even jealous of coworkers who consistently do well. The largest concern with employee recognition is in realizing that not everyone needs the same kudos for the work they do. You can go beyond the employee-of-the-month rut by having a plaque for all sorts of accomplishments, including

  • best smile
  • most helpful
  • most friendly
  • most driven
  • most customer-oriented
  • most dedicated
  • best trainer 

You can rotate these plaques every month, and even have your employees vote on the winners. Make sure you have a category for each of your employees, so everyone gets a beautiful plaque on the wall.

Choose a collage

You may not have the funds or the room to give each employee their own gorgeous plaque, but that doesn't mean you can't give each person the credit they are due. Many sign companies can provide you with a single large plaque proclaiming your business name, logo, and a special message dedicated to your staff. They can attach hooks for hanging name placards on underneath, so each of your employees can feel special in your place of business. As you hire new employees, you can add more hooks and have new placards delivered.

Have personal plaques

Perhaps the best way you can tell your staff you appreciate them is to give them a plaque that they can hang personally in their office or cubicle. The plaque should have their name on it and a special accomplishment they have achieved, such as never missing a day of work or solving a particular difficult customer issue. A simple plaque in polished wood is all you need to supply with a few words that express how grateful you are to have certain individuals on your team. The small gesture can make employees feel especially needed at their job, and give them a reason to always be loyal to your business.

Retaining staff and keeping employees happily motivated while at work all starts with the right way to say, "Thank you." A plaque in their honor is a great way to do this, whether you want to express appreciation on an individual basis or to your staff as a whole. For assistance with the plaques, talk to a professional like All Signs.

Announcing an Impending Arrival

I enjoy communicating with my childhood friends on social media outlets. Because I live a long distance from my hometown, I don’t get to see them as often as I would like. A few days ago, I was shocked and excited when I saw a social media post by one of these close friends. He and his wife announced that they were going to have their second baby this December. However, the way that they made the announcement was unique. They made a picture of their son sitting in the sand on a beach. They placed four pairs of flip flops near their son. Beside these pairs of shoes, they placed unique signs. When I finished reading all of the signs, I was able to understand the announcement. On this blog, you will discover how to announce a pregnancy with the help of unique, custom signs.
