As an employer, coach or club secretary, you no doubt understand the importance of motivating your employees, team or club members. Motivation raises the bar for everyone, because it involves everyone participating to perform at their very best, whether in the professional world or simply as a hobby or an organisation. It can be hard to generate the type of enthusiasm that you need, but if you can achieve this goal, your club or organisation will go from strength to strength.
One of the best ways to motivate and encourage participation and involvement is with presentation plaques. These are a great way to create a tangible and positive feeling of cooperation and enthusiasm. Some companies and clubs provide prizes such as gift vouchers, bottles of wine or boxes of chocolates. In the right place, these can be an effective management or leadership tool. But presentation plaques add an enhanced level of motivation. Whereas a gift voucher or other reward might have a temporary effect with your employees or team, the effects of presentation plaques last for longer. They are a visible source of pride and healthy competition which can be used to motivate longer lasting enthusiasm and commitment.
Depending on your organisation will affect what you use presentation plaques for. However, there are certain general uses that apply to most situations. The obvious use for presentation plaques is to celebrate achievement, whether that is winning a league or leading the sales board. This could be a one-off award, or it could be to represent an ongoing title that is passed from person to person as they supersede the previous winner. As an alternative, you could award effort and attitude. This could be most effective if the team or employees themselves choose the winner, such as the person who contributed the most or was the most supporting. This can engender a real feeling of camaraderie and support. This in turn can lead to greater achievements and success, with team members feeling inspired to commit more effort in the hopes of themselves winning one of the presentation plaques next time.
There are a range of options for presentation plaques which you can choose from. Glass crystal presentation plaques are a particularly popular choice. They are ideal because they look great, with a variety of styles and designs available. As well as looking good, they are easy to clean and polish so that they can be used again and again without looking tired and old.
