EDCO Awards & Specialties Recognition Awards Perfect for Employee and Team Achievement
September 27, 2013 Business News(PRLEAP.COM) Many employers may wonder why they have a low employee retention rate. It could be because they haven't established an employee recognition program, where team members are recognized for achievement monthly, quarterly, or yearly. It's one thing to give an occasional nod to a well-deserved worker, but it's probably not enough. Employees thrive when their boss actively offers something in recognition of their efforts.
Awards and trophy manufacturer EDCO Awards & Specialties of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., offers an extensive collection of corporate recognition awards and employee recognition plaques. The newly released crystal awards collection will impress, as each is tailored with an innovative design and added color. They have even updated the customary glass designs with more vibrant colors for added appeal.
Several of their popular corporate awards like the Crystal Distinction Award, the Star Recognition Award, the Voyager Art Glass Award, and the Rising Diamond Crystal Award are striking and will impress any employee. "We feel that these new designs make a compelling statement. The styling, design, and color speak volumes and would make any employee feel valued and appreciated," says EDCO vice president Mike Szczesny.
Research proves that employees want more recognition. Sirota Consulting surveyed 2.5 million employees in 89 countries in private, public and not-for-profit organizations and concluded that 49 percent of workers were not happy with how they were recognized for a stellar work performance. The data shows that employers could do a better job showing appreciation.
Surprisingly, there is very little cost associated with implementing a recognition system; and the benefits far outweigh whatever cost is related. A few of those benefits include: increased productivity and work satisfaction, enhanced teamwork, higher retention rates, less absenteeism and stress-related incidents. Proof is in the pudding, as they say, when positive results speak for themselves.
EDCO's Goal-Setter Recognition Program or Employee of the Month Awards and Plaques make it easy to get started. Either program will establish a monthly or quarterly program that assures success. Employee of the month is a good place to start, while the Goal-Setter Program could establish quarterly recognition; it's designed to honor performance that occurs incrementally. Blue crystal blocks are added to the award as employees achieve company goals over time.
Whatever the occasion or budget, it won't be difficult to find that perfect award. EDCO's expanded collection, from acrylic awards, custom awards, glass awards, sports awards, and more, has been designed to accommodate any business's budget. So get started today.
