You can show off the value of your employees by presenting them with an appreciation plaque they'll admire for years to come. Plaques are great for building camaraderie within a company and drawing traffic and increasing profits. For example, a customer may walk into a bank and spot a blue crystal employee appreciation plaque on a teller's desk. The award alone may draw that customer in and reassure them they are receiving exceptional and reliable service. Appreciation awards can advertise the beneficial value of a product or service.

Customers are often more willing to pay extra premiums if they believe they are receiving a superior service by a revered employee. Achievement tokens such as crystal glass awards or certificate plaques may reinforce your client's belief that they are getting an exceptional service or product.

Wording Ideas, Sayings, Examples & Quotes of Appreciation

Appreciation, sales and leadership awards play a significant role in employee motivation, increasing profits and building consumer confidence in a particular brand. To motivate employees, business owners offer incentives such as gift cards, programs or meaningful recognition or certificate gifts. Studies show employees often spend monetary gifts and forget about the award or the reason it was granted. With memorable desk accessories, however, such as crystal plaque awards, employees are more likely to remember their achievements and remain inspired to work hard.

An appreciation award with careful wording offers even more value when it's set out on a desk or put in plain view of customers and other employees. When showcased to the public, stone and marble plaques and awards add value to a company and its employees by reminding them daily of the importance of their loyalty and discipline. Popular categories of corporate awards include sales, performance, recognition, achievement, appreciation and best in quality.

When presenting an appreciation crystal plaque, encourage employees to flaunt it for the entire office or workforce to see. The award will also attract your client's attention. At DIY Awards, we understand the value of commemorating and cherishing an employee with a special award. We offer both pre-designed and customizable award options to help you choose the best wording and logo designs for your valued staff member.

Teachers
Paint their minds

Share their achievements
and advise their faults.
Inspire a love
of knowledge and truth
As you light the path
Which leads our youth.

Each smile you lengthen
Each goal you help reach.
For the dawn of each poet
each philosopher and king
Begins with a Teacher
And the wisdom they bring.
