An effective recognition program starts with the right rewards. Incorporating branded promotional gifts into the program rewards employees and provides a positive, continuous reminder of why the reward was received in the first place.
- Use It Or Lose It. A gift of recognition should be memorable, visible and useful. Gifts that can be seen by peers, family or friends every time they are used have a lot of impact.
- Seeing Is Believing. Choose items that will get the most visibility with your audience. Do they work in an office? Then choose a nice desktop item or award they will see throughout the day. If they travel, pick an item that will travel with them – a laptop case or leather travel bag.
- Budget’s No Biggie. You don’t have to spend a fortune on recognition gifts to make them meaningful. Gifts don’t have to be expensive to be appreciated. You can reward with inexpensive items and include a handwritten note of thanks to give it more meaning.
