Team Achievements

Did an entire department go beyond a set goal?  Did a specific team of people resolve a difficult challenge?  Do you have a group of employees that just work really well together?  Sometimes the biggest achievements were done as a team, so everyone in that team deserves recognition.  A recognition of a team achievement is a great way to honor your all employees while encouraging teamwork.

Years Of Service

What To Write On Your Award

Wednesday, April 13, 2016 @ 09:04 AM

What To Write On Your Award

Picking the perfect etched glass award is easy at Custom Glass Etcher but knowing what words to etch can take a lot of thought.  You may not know what to write on the award so that the recipient really feels honored.  So we’ve put together this short set of guidelines to make it easy for you to say the perfect thing.

Company Name & Logo

You definitely want to put your company name and logo on the award.  That way whenever someone is admiring the award, they will truly understand the prestige of the award.

Recipient Name

You definitely want the award to be personalized so that the recipient feels personally honored by the recognition of their achievement.  Also if you include their name, it becomes a great showpiece they can proudly display.


This is always the toughest part.  You want to make sure that everyone who sees the award understands the achievement.  A clear award title will also help your employee pursue their personal career goals.  So make sure to be clear by using specific language like:

● “Salesperson of the Year”

● “Excellence in Management”

● “Leadership Award”

● “Highest Quality Assurance”

● “Innovation Award Winner”

Description Of Achievement

In order to ensure both the recipient and an admirer understands the recognition, a description of the achievement should be included.  This description should be short, precise, but also convey the importance of the recognition.  Some good achievement description examples are:

● “In recognition of your outstanding sales, service, and support”

● “For your hard work, dedication, and performance”

● “In appreciation of your exceptional customer service”

● “For your contributions toward the continued success of our company”

● “Surpassing quarterly expectations”

A Statement Of Appreciation

There are a couple of ways to include a statement of appreciation.  You can say a direct thank you from your company or from the presenters.  You can also just include the words “thank you” or “we appreciate your dedication.”  Simply including a statement of appreciation will make the recipient feel honored and appreciated.


Finally you want to include the date the award was presented, so if your employee wins the same award again at a later date, there’s a distinction between the awards.  Also it is important to include the date to help your employee to continue to achieve their career goals.

If you include all these things on your corporate awards, you will ensure that the recipient feels appreciated and honored.  If you have any questions or want more tips, our experienced staff at Custom Glass Etching can help.

Three Tips To Spice Up Your Corporate Awards Ceremony

Wednesday, April 6, 2016 @ 09:04 AM

Three Tips To Spice Up Your Corporate Awards Ceremony

Awards ceremonies can be a dry affair.  We’ve all been to the corporate awards event with the overcooked chicken, long boring speeches, and awkward powerpoint presentations.  However award ceremonies don’t have to be dull, they can actually be a fun way to honor your employees, strengthen teams, and cultivate a fun company culture. Here are three ways to spice up your awards ceremonies so they are something everyone looks forward to:

Pick A Great Venue

A great venue is crucial to an entertaining awards ceremony.  A lot of companies host their awards ceremonies right in the office because it’s cost-effective, however picking a venue off-site makes the event more special.  Plus your employees will be more engaged instead of thinking about the work they have to do back at their desks.  Think about some local places that would be a fun place to have an awards ceremony.  Maybe the local happy hour spot, a great restaurant, or even somewhere with fun activities like a zoo or a go kart track.

Have Great Entertainment

The worst part of an awards ceremony can be a cringeworthy magician or a bad cover band.  These are very expensive and most of the time fall flat.  So instead think about entertainment that engages your employees.  Plan activities that everyone can participate in for the entertainment.  You can do anything from a roast to a karaoke contest to a department trivia challenge.  If people are engaged in the entertainment, your awards ceremony will be a hit.

Present Great Awards

Think about the achievements you want to reward, make sure that you aren’t just defaulting on employee of the month.  Give awards that matter to your employees, awards that will help them realize their career goals.  If you give your employees specific recognition, they will be more engaged in the awards process.  Also make sure you present your employees with a beautiful, high quality award, something the can display with pride.  For example a corporate award from Custom Glass Etching has the prestige and beauty your employees will love to display.  If you give out awards your employees actually want, your awards ceremony will be a great time.

So the next time you host your awards ceremony, make sure it’s a fun and entertaining event.  If you pick a great venue, have interactive entertainment, and present beautiful awards, everyone will be sure to have a great time.

Why You Should Recognize Your Employees?

Why You Should Recognize Your Employees?

In the workplace where competition is tough and it can sometimes feel like only the fittest survives, recognition of any form can do wonders to boost and uplift the morale of any employee. Though loyalty or longevity awards are a great way to congratulate employees that reach certain milestones in their career, it doesn’t serve as an acknowledgement of their hard work or achievements. That’s why you should consider giving out service awards.

The Benefits Of Service Awards

Service awards allows employees to feel like their efforts were acknowledged and that they are a valued employee of the company. It’s not just a gesture or token of appreciation though, it also plays an important role in employee retention and productivity.

When employees know the company values them as more than just workers and that they could even receive recognition for their efforts, it allows them to feel motivated to go above and beyond for their company. That means that they will work harder for you and boost the productivity of your company. Not to mention that they will be more likely to represent your brand in a respectable and honorable manner.

That aside, service awards can actually benefit your brand too. It becomes part of your company’s symbol and shows that your company cares about your employees.

A Custom Glass Service Award

Not any trophy will provide the recognition an employee needs or that can properly represent the brand. If you are planning to award your employees for their outstanding service, give them the custom made glass trophy that will never fail to impress.

Glass trophies have a unique elegance that would make anyone proud to receive and own. What’s better, you can customize this award to properly represent your brand and the outstanding service your employee has given the company.

In simple terms, a custom glass trophy offers several benefits and are a crucial investment in order to honor your company.
