Employee of the month
Employee of the month recognition awards can have a powerful impact on your team.
There are a few ways of going about the selection process for an employee of the month. It can be led by management or employee driven, or a combination of the two.
Once you have determined who will be selecting the winners each month, the next step is to set up a list of criteria and then clearly communicate these to all staff members. There needs to be clear expectations, so your employees know what they need to do, to be considered for this coveted acknowledgment.
Outside of their name going on the plaque for all to see, you can also implement other small gestures that show genuine appreciation. Whether it be a small corporately branded gift such as a water bottle or jacket, to a special parking spot for the month, a day off, or even lunch with their manager at the restaurant of their choice.
