Giving a traditional wall plaque award is a classic way to recognize exceptional employees and honor special people.
Wall plaques are practically expected at awards ceremonies. One of the benefits of giving a wall plaque is that your company will be remembered in the award for many years to come.
A wall plaque leaves a legacy for future generations. Once a wall plaque has been mounted on a wall, it’s likely to stay there for many years. The names on the plaque will remain long after some employees and team members have moved on. Future employees can discover who won the awards hanging on the wall by reading them.
A gift of money alone for achievements is not the motivator you might think. Cash is quickly spent. Also, with money, there is rarely a celebration. There is nothing physical to remind the employee of his or her achievement. A wall plaque, however, gives the individual a tangible reminder of his accomplishments and recognition of the value of his contribution.
Plaques also prove that you won an award. If you put on your resume that you won an award, for example, and a prospective employer wants evidence, you can show him the award. When you have a solid award in your hand with your name on it, nobody can dispute the evidence that you exceeded expectations and received recognition for it.
Retirement Plaques Are Great Gifts For Retirement
Retirement plaques are a great way to congratulate your retiring employees and show them how much they mean to the company. A plaque can be given as a gift, or it can be used as a trophy or award at an event celebrating the retiree’s years of service.
Plaques are available in many different styles and shapes, so you can choose one that matches your company’s brand and style. There are also many different materials from which to choose, including wood, acrylic, metal and more.
The plaque will include an engraving of some kind, either text from you or the retiree, or both—so you can get as creative as you want with what you write on there. You can also choose whether to have a photo engraved into the plaque (if applicable) or not.
Plaques are great because they’re easy to order online and don’t take much time to get ready for delivery. They’re also affordable enough that most companies can afford to give one away at retirement parties without breaking their budgets!
