Award Presentation Tips:
Recognizing employees with a formal presentation (when possible) is a very important part of service awards. For the most impact, have the employee's manager do the recognition in front of their peers. These events are great opportunities to honor and praise the employee's long service and significant achievements, and will demonstrate to all in attendance that your company values its people.
Employee Recognition for Years of Service is one of the most popular and motivating employee awards programs you can provide. To help you plan, and get the most success from your program, consider which service milestones you plan to include.
Although many companies still recognize milestones beginning with the employee's 5th anniversary, then each 5 years thereafter (5, 10, 15, 20, etc), this practice is rapidly changing.
Employee Anniversary Gifts by Year: Today, many companies are adding new-hire gifts, gifts for completing your on-boarding program, and giving recognition for earlier service milestones, such as 3 months, 1-year and 3-years.
Changing employee demographics are requiring these changes, as newer employees need management to provide earlier feedback, acknowledgement and recognition for their service. Without it, they may feel unappreciated and simply leave. Earlier service recognition will help improve the morale and retention of your newer employees.
How much should you budget for each Service Milestone?
Many organizations we work with spend between $10-$25 (and more) for each year of service. Using this range, an award for five years of service would be budgeted between $50 and $125 (or more). What you allocate for each recognition package will depend on many factors, including your budget. (see these budgeting tips)
