Celebrating achievements and milestones have always been standard practice at the workplace. It’s also been proven that creating a culture of recognition has helped drastically improve employee morale, retain top talent, increase employee engagement and encourage higher performance. That’s why commemorating exceptional behavior, celebrating team accomplishments and recognizing hardworking employees should be priority.
Why Customized Lapel Pins?
With countless options to choose from, we’re putting customized lapel pins at the top of the list every company should consider when recognizing top performing teams and talents in the future.
You might be thinking, why not hand out trophies, medals, or plaques of appreciation? Aside from them being the usual suspects, they also have the tendency to collect dust on the shelf. These are also displays that don’t necessarily carry the recognition of an employee wherever they go- unless they’re bringing them around to show off.
Here are a few reasons to award lapel pins the next time your team hits their quota.
Aside from being able to easily distinguish accomplishments by having unique designs for each milestone, they are perfect lowkey accolades that don’t draw too much attention. This can be adjusted depending on your preference.
The subtlety of pins make for a less intimidating and discriminatory working environment. Not everybody is motivated by the same things in the workplace and that should also be respected.
Lapel pins can be used or put on almost anything- collar, coat, uniform, beret, lanyard, tie, and more! This makes pins a pretty versatile option whenever awardees receive recognition. It works well in formal corporate settings, as well as business casual settings.
They also fit in any occasion or ceremony. There is a certain air of elegance in adding shine to your wardrobe that immediately evokes respect and recognition.
Awards are meant to be shown and known. Doing that may not be easy if you were only given a plaque to celebrate your achievement. Customized lapel pins are easy enough to don because of their size and function. They can be pinned wherever. So if your team awards ever come with special benefits, they’ll be easily recognizable.
Are you cultivating a culture of recognition in your workplace?
Did you know that 37% of employees in the US consider employee recognition important at work? Studies show that an employee that’s been recognized in the workplace is 63% more likely to stay with the company for the next three to six months.
With that being said, are you giving your people the credit they deserve for reaching the heights and successes the company has had thus far? We all want our employees to be happy in the workplace because we want them to be more engaged.
Happier employees are more productive. And while handing out customized lapel pins will solve all of your HR concerns, it can certainly be the first step in starting a culture of recognition within your team. A simple gesture of appreciation can shift a person’s mindset and add to their motivation. Who doesn’t like being appreciated for their hard work?
So, give credit where credit is due and watch your employees thrive in a healthy working environment that encourages and uplifts them.
