Award Presentation Speech - Employee Recognition
Award presentation speech to acknowledge and recognize staff
In the workplace employee recognition is based on a psychological theory that rewards behavior.
"Organizations that employ this positive principle encourage staff to perform better and retain employees whilst promoting the company's values and goals."
The overall effect is improved customer satisfaction through committed and engaged employees who are proud of the company they work for. To boost morale and encourage healthy competition top performers should be recognized and rewarded for their contribution. Management should devise a consistent, fair and highly visible program where supervisors record staff achievements and staff can nominate their peers for recognition.
Staff can further contribute by putting forward suggestions of colleagues they feel qualify for an award or recognition. They can add comments which can be added to the award presentation speech.
There are many opportunities and reasons to reward staff.
- Long service awards
- Rewards for a job well done
for going the extra mile
- Going above and beyond the call of duty
- Thinking of new and better ways of doing things
- Time and money saving initiatives
Management can use these ideas to write an employee recognition speech for a special event to honor outstanding achievements and carry over this theme into an award presentation speech to reward employees for their contribution towards business success. It is important to thank staff.
