Looking back at your last year of high school, do you remember voting for the student who is Most Likely to Succeed?
How about Class Clown? Most Popular? Apple Polisher? Ah yes, those were the days.
Special recognition awards always make the winners feel truly appreciated because they highlight each person’s unique contributions, whether in high school or at a prestigious law firm. That’s because custom recognition awards also highlight the unique benefit a winning employee brings to an entire company.
Whether they are serious in nature or add levity to the work week, creative categories for recognition awards can be great motivational tools as well as a fun way for bosses to connect with employees on a personal level. Here are a few examples:
1. The Excellent Innovator Award – for the person who comes up with great ideas.
2. The Good Works Award – for the person who is an outstanding philanthropist and charitable volunteer.
3. The Fierce Award – for the person who is fearless enough to take the team in a new direction.
4. The Twitter Addict Award – for the person who is most likely to tweet about receiving this award.
5. The Social Butterfly Award – for the person who keeps morale high and makes people look forward to a day at the office.
6. The Think Outside the Box Award – for the person who sees an original solution for a routine problem.
7. The Drop and Give Me 10 Award – for the person who encourages morning stretches, walks during lunch or gym memberships for co-workers.
