Employee Recognition Award Plaque Wording Examples, Phrases, & Quote Ideas

At DIY Awards, we offer crystal glass awards unparalleled in the industry. It's an important responsibility when you must acknowledge an employee's exceptional service, leadership abilities or retirement. Besides appreciating staff, we encourage companies to motivate employees to continue their contributions. Every year, we produce hundreds of thousands of awards to recognize individuals who go above and beyond their regular duties, act with integrity and honesty, generate excellent creative ideas, promote teamwork within their workplaces and contribute exceptional innovation, time, commitment and effort.

When brainstorming how and why to commemorate a fellow employee, it's useful to consider whether you want a plaque to display the company name, any nicknames (if these were used more than the individual's given name), what skill or accomplishment you are measuring and how you'll present the award when the time comes. Company parties, gift ceremonies or other formalities may help you extend heartfelt gratitude along with any crystal plaque award.

At DIY Awards, we recognize the power of words, phrases and quotes in conveying a sincere message that will be treasured for years to come. Are you looking for some powerful quotes or inspiring wording ideas? We offer pre-designed crystal glass awards with deeply engraved wording options. Or, if you have a specific design in mind, you can turn to our online customization tool to create a uniquely personal award with your favorite fonts, colors, logos or emblems.

See our examples of awards below.
