Leadership Award Wording Ideas

Almost every company today has a series of awards that focus on the management and leadership skills of certain employees. Why? Employee retention is becoming less common as individuals hop from one position to the next. Managing employee retention involves taking strategic actions toward keeping employees motivated. Distributing service awards for qualities such as leadership and dedication is an excellent way to inspire employees to stay at any company.

Phrases, Quotes, Quips & Wording Ideas for Awarding Leaders

At DIY Awards, we recognize that exceptional service and loyalty should be acknowledged — and not with just any award. Our high-quality, deeply-etched engraved crystal awards are professional and pristine. You can customize your crystal plaque by selecting a specific award title, quote, emblem or logo to commemorate your particular employee for all their hard work.

Leadership qualities such as superior customer service, exceptional teamwork, motivation, innovative ideas and lasting contributions are all worthy of recognition. Regional managers, department managers, national managers, global managers, trustees, executive staff and board members that have demonstrated outstanding leadership deserve acknowledgment for their efforts. Another reason for honoring an employee with a leadership crystal plaque award may include their exceptional adherence to specific company values or standards, such as diversity, respect, creativity or innovation.

Whether you want to recognize a past employee's contributions or hone in on a valuable skillset held by an individual, such as new market penetration, strategy or teamwork, leadership crystal plaque awards are the high-quality glass awards that communicate genuine, heartfelt gratitude. Further, it's common to extend appreciation toward individual employees if they're retiring, being promoted to a new position or moving to a separate location within the same association.

Sometimes, it's not easy to brainstorm wording ideas for your leadership awards or customer service awards. Below are some helpful award ideas and eye-catching layouts for employees who've demonstrated noteworthy leadership abilities.
