Years of Service Plaque Wording Examples & Ideas

A Years of Service Award celebrates an employee for their devotion to a particular company or position. That doesn't have to be all, though. Years of Service crystal plaques can commemorate an individual's quality of work and the contributions they've made to a specific industry. Qualities such as organizational skills, leadership, active listening, ambition, honesty, strong work ethic and teamwork are all character traits worthy of recognition.

Service Award Phrasing Ideas, Quotes & Sayings

Recognizing employees for service is an excellent way for companies to make evident how much they value dedication and the ongoing contributions of employees. This has become especially important in recent years because statistics show the average individual changes jobs approximately every four years. According to a study conducted by the Bureau of Labor Statistics in January 2018, the average employee tenure was 4.3 years for men and four years for women. Also, businesses that can advertise high employee retention rates look more attractive to prospective clients and staff members. These companies have been shown to have higher profit margins than those that do not retain customers.

Years of Service Awards are the ideal corporate gifts for those companies wishing to retain current employees and boost sales revenue. At DIY Awards, we distribute a multitude of glass and crystal awards, art glass sales awards, Years of Service plaques and corporate gifts for businesses with this intent. The length of employee dedication matters — and so does the quality of their award! We distribute pristine, high-quality crystal and glass awards with deep-etched engraving. Common Years of Service Awards recognize employees at the following year markers: one, three, five, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45 and 50 years.
