Back to School Awards

When children are just starting back at school it can be pretty daunting so as a teacher why not consider awards for the students given on a monthly basis and then an overall winner at the end of each term or school year where a glass award is given? You may have a large number in your class but with our high quality, cheap glass awards you can award your whole class for their hard work.

You could give monthly certificates for All A’s or All A’s and B’s based on the grades the children in your class get throughout their lessons, this will encourage them to keep striving for those top grades so they can win the glass award at the end of the year.

You could also have monthly awards for different subjects, allowing children to win glass awards, even if they are not great educationally but better at sports, arts or drama for example. You could have Best Art Student, Best Drama Student and Best PE Student as well as many others.

There will often be students that show great improvement but they are still not the best students in the class for that subject however it is still important that these students are rewarded. This is where awards for ‘Most Improved’ come in, for example Most Improved Math Student, Most Improved Art Student, Most Improved Science Student and so on, this will show your student they have been noticed and it will encourage them to keep trying.
Teamwork and Friendship is really important, they aren’t really skills that are directly taught in the classroom but they are skills that can be learnt off each other. Have a Most Valuable Player award for those in a sports team that may not be great at sports but they are supportive of others in their team. Then have an award for a child that has shown excellent friendship, or ask for the pupils to choose someone in the class who has shown what a good friend they can be.

Do you remember any awards that you won in school? How did it make you feel when you were given a trophy or glass award as recognition for your hard work?

We feel that the Rectangle Glass Award is popular for a wide range of reasons but with lots of different clients ordering the rectangle glass award for different reasons, we couldn’t be sure of the main reason this award is so popular but we can definitely share with you a few benefits of the rectangle glass award that we feel makes it so popular.
As we have already mentioned, the shape, design and style of the glass award is typical of the corporate and business industry. It is a standard shape when it comes to glass awards and offers the large space that has plenty of available room for branding, a logo, the name of the award, a logo of the sponsor, the name of the winner and even the date that they won the award.
Another benefit of our Rectangle Glass Awards is that they are available in 5 different sizes, this means you can give awards to 1st place, 2nd place, 3rd place and finalists or if you have a tighter budget for the glass awards then you could opt for the smaller sizes?

How To Improve Morale and Motivate Employees in 2017

How To Improve Morale and Motivate Employees in 2017
We all love to be recognised by others, especially when we have worked hard to achieve something. If you don’t believe me look at a child when they win a race on sports day, swim their first 10m or receive a glass sports award for another achievement – the pride on their face, and their parents really says it all!
Your employees will often be more than happy to go that extra mile for you and the business when overcoming a problem or meeting tight deadlines, but that is no reason not to recognise this extra effort that employees have put in. If the extra effort goes unnoticed employees will wonder why they both, recognise the employees and they’ll be motivated to go that extra mile again, because they know their hard work and effort won’t go unnoticed.
Thanking an employee and emphasising how much their effort has helped the business and is really appreciated will go a long way to increasing team morale and will motivate the individual employee and those around them as the team understand what a difference they can make to the success of the business.
A thank you is brilliant, but once aid it may be forgotten after a few days or even hours, so for those employees that have really gone above and beyond you need a thank-you that is more permanent and that is where our crystal glass awards come in. We have a wide selection of glass trophies, cheap glass awards and crystal glass awards that you can choose from which will work as a permanent reminder to the employee of how grateful you are of their effort.
Before giving out glass awards in your workplace you need to decide the types of behaviour you will be recognising and rewarding along with how the glass award will be given, will it be in a team meeting, a one to one meeting or in front of the whole workplace? You need to make these decisions at the beginning because this is the stepping stone to continuous morale boosting and staff motivation going forward.
If you need help choosing the right glass awards for your business and employees then just give us a call, we would be more than happy to help you with any queries you may have.

Why Opt For Bevelled Edge Awards

Why Opt For Bevelled Edge Awards
Here at Fen Regis Trophies we sell a hundreds of glass trophies and awards every year, helping a wide range of clients, including sports clubs, businesses, industry experts, event organisers, schools and more, find the right glass awards that suit their needs and their budget.
One of our most popular glass awards is the Oval Cut Glass Award, this is a stunning glass award with a large area for engraving and personalisation, but what really sets it apart is the bevelled edge around the outside of the face of the Oval Cut Glass Award.
The bevelled edge on a glass award is often unusual in glass award designs which means it is an asset to the glass award that helps it stand out, it also gives an opportunity for natural lighting, indoor lighting or display cabinet lighting to catch the bevelled edges of the glass award creating a glass award that really sparkles and grabs attention, which is ideal under the lights of an award ceremony or corporate event.
As well as attracting more light and making the glass award sparkle, but in rooms or spaces where there is less light, the light will reflect off of the bevelled edges around the room, to really light up a room or space easily and with beauty. A bevelled edge glass award is also aesthetically pleasing, the slants catch and refract the lights and at certain angles this can create a rainbow effect through the prism that is created.
Due to the design and style of the bevelled edge on the Oval Cut Glass Award it will also look like this glass award is larger than other glass awards that are the same size because of the bevelled edges. These bevelled edges create a feeling of spaciousness and result in the illusion that the glass award is bigger – offering even better value for money on a glass award that is already classed as a cheap glass award!

Easter School Awards

Easter School Awards
With Christmas behind us, Easter will soon be on its way and with it a mark of the end of the first term back at school. If you are the person in charge of sorting out the school glass awards for the end of the right term you have come to the right place. We have hundreds of trophies available so we are sure to have something to suit your tastes, needs and budget.
If you need awards for younger children, like nursery school glass awards then perhaps a glass dome paperweight could be what you are looking for, with the name of the award along with the date and the name of the award winner engraved in the base this is a fabulous glass award for your child’s bedroom or for the desk or glass cabinet of a proud parent that can be admired for years to come. There is also a large space for the logo of your nursery to be engraved, so it’s like a free bit of promotion too, especially when the parents and child proudly show off their glass award to friends, family and neighbours!
For primary school awards something like our Rectangle Glass Award is a popular option because it has a heavy base which results in a strong and sturdy glass award that the children will find an honour to behold. The rectangle glass award is also from our cheap glass award collection so you know you’re getting excellent value for money and the budget may allow for you to buy more glass awards than you previously thought you would be able to afford; and, like the glass paperweight award, there is plenty of space for the engraving of your choice along with a school logo or motto.
For older students, either at a secondary school or university we think that our Skye Cube Jade Glass Award is the perfect option. It is a stunning glass award that will be treated with care and admired for years to come. Due to the shape and design of this stunning glass award, the light reflects beautifully off the glass award and demands attention – which is exactly what you want from a glass award to recognise a school or university achievement, plus there is plenty of room for the school or university logo to be engraved on the glass award too.
If you need help choosing the right Easter School Awards then give us a call, we would be more than happy to help. Don’t forget we offer free engraving and delivery on all orders over £100 too!

Employee Incentives That Will Really Work In 2017

Employee Incentives That Will Really Work In 2017
Incentives are a great way to improve employees’ performances in the workplace and can really help a business grow. Research by International Society for Performance Improvement found that incentive programs, when used right, can boost performance levels by 25% to 44% – but what employee incentives are right for your business?
Employee incentives tend to be broken into three categories; cash incentives, not cash incentives and recognition awards, in this blog post we will discuss all three options to help you decide on the best employee incentive that will work in your business for 2017.
Bonuses
Bonuses are a cash incentive that is very popular with many business owners as it can help increase production for individuals and teams; it is added to the salary of the employee so they will be taxed. The main downside of bonuses is that employees will soon start to see the bonus as their salary and therefore perhaps not feel recognised for the work and effort they have put in to gain this bonus.
Recognition Awards
Glass recognition awards are given to show an employee that their hard work has not gone unnoticed and you are grateful for the extra effort they have put in to meet chosen goals. The benefit of a recognition glass award is that it can be kept for months and years to come, working as a constant reminder that the employee has been recognised for their achievements while encouraging others to strive to win the award too.
Non-Cash Prizes
Business owners that offer their sales people commission only salaries will often consider non-cash prizes to encourage sales people to work harder to achieve targets and sell more products, these are often in the form of incentives for sales people that exceed quotas or sell the most chosen goods during a set amount of time. Again, the downside is that once the incentive is received it is often quickly forgotten about.

Now you have seen the three main types of employee incentives to motivate employees, which incentive do you think you will choose for 2017 for your workplace?

Do You Use Employee Recognition Awards?

Do You Use Employee Recognition Awards?
We have noticed a recent rise in purchases of employee recognition glass awards for businesses. While some business owners have often thought of employee recognition awards to be a waste of money with very little return, or no return on investment there are some business owners that swear by their employee recognition glass awards.
In your workplace you will find that pretty much all of your employees work hard, there may be one or two you need to keep a closer eye on, but all in all your employees work hard for you and they are good at what they do.
But are there some employees that will always go that extra mile, that really excel in their accomplishments, make additional effort and can be relied on, whatever?
This may be an employee that pushed hard on a project, aim or goal and made sure it was completed successfully before schedule? Maybe someone has put in those extra hours to make sure that a computer system upgrade has been successfully accomplished and ran smoothly for others.
There will be at least one employee who exceeds expectations and does that little bit more, by publicly recognising them in front of their colleagues with an employee recognition glass award you will see some amazing effects in your business.
The pride the colleague has in themselves and your business will generate a positive wave through the workforce and their co-workers will be positively affected too, which will then encourage them to put in the extra effort too. The atmosphere in your office will quickly change for the better, creating a more positive atmosphere for everyone.
When you, as a business owner, leader or manager, publicly recognise a member of your team for a job well done and then follow on to commemorate their achievement with an employee recognition glass award your small investment will pay off big time!

A Personalised Personal Glass Award

If you are in an endless struggle deciding what to get them then why not take a look at our Curved Glass Award.
Our Curved Glass Awards are an ideal way of telling the special person just how much you mean to them as there is loads of empty space for the engraving and personalisation of your choice. Plus, due to the curved shape of the glass award it also looks great on a mantelpiece, coffee table or in a glass cabinet with other treasured items.
Why not choose a logo of the receiver’s favourite hobby or sport or a symbol of love, such as a heart. If the personalised glass award is for a special occasion then you could choose a symbol for that occasion, such as the number or jewel that celebrates an anniversary, a year of birth or balloons for a birthday or wedding rings for a wedding gift?
The greatest thing about a personalised personal glass award is also the hardest thing about it, you can put whatever you want onto the glass award, whether these are words of love, a favourite quote or saying that the receiver always uses, a poem you have written or found online or just some words that will help you get across just how much the receiver means to you.
A personalised personal glass award like a curved glass award is a gift that will be treasured, cherished and loved for years to come, bringing a smile to all that set eyes on it – creating the perfect gift for the person, or people, that can sometimes be a nightmare to buy for.

Which Is Better, Glass Awards or Flowers?

Which Is Better, Glass Awards or Flowers? – Fen Regis Trophies
When someone is unwell or struggling with ill health the standard gift is a bunch of flowers. They brighten the room, bring a smile to the receivers face and could even be a sign to represent spring, new growth or a fresh start… but if someone is or has been really ill is there something better to give than flowers?
When someone is badly injured or becomes extremely unwell they will usually end up in hospital. During their time at hospital they are often faced with a big decision, if they can fight off the illness or recover from the injury or if they should just give up all hope then and there.
To fight or repair from an illness or an injury the person will go through some tough personal struggles and self doubt. The healing process and subsequent recovery can often require a lot of personal sacrifices as well as changes in their lifestyle and often some very hard rehabilitation work too. Some may compare the struggle to an athlete preparing for an endurance challenge but there is a difference.
When the athlete prepares they are envisioning the light at the end of the tunnel, seeing their successes in front of them and envisioning themselves holding the trophy they have won. When you are struggling with a serious illness or injury it can be hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel and there is certainly no award for their struggles but why not?
If we hear that our nearest and dearest are unwell we give them flowers, of course it is a nice gesture but a week later when the flowers have died what is left? When someone battles a serious and sometimes life threatening ordeal they deserve so much more – a medal at least surely?
Why not create the trend where glass awards are created for those that have successfully won the battle of health, this award will show that we recognise the struggle they have been through and it will congratulate them on their win. Every time they see the award it will remind them of what they can really achieve and encourage them to continue fighting.
So what do you think, could glass awards be the new flowers?

What Makes Crystal Awards Better Than Glass Awards?

What Makes Crystal Awards Better Than Glass Awards?
Just looking at crystal awards it is clear to see why they are such a popular choice for corporate awards; a crystal corporate award has a special quality and a sort of ‘need to be seen’. They sparkle and glisten in all sorts of lighting conditions and we can genuinely say that a corporate crystal glass award is an honour to behold and it will be treasured for many years to come as it is such a stunning piece of glass.
Of course glass awards are cheaper than crystal glass awards, but if you are looking for a classy, sophisticated and elegant award that really stands out and oozes glamour then a crystal glass award is what you’re looking for, no questions asked.
Crystal contains denser materials than standard glass awards, which means a crystal glass award is a heavier award and also emits a pleasing high pitched resonance when tapped. You will also notice that a crystal award has smoother edges and due to the quality and style crystal awards will refract a rainbow prism of light which just adds to the beauty of the crystal award, making it perfect for a classy corporate awards ceremony.
If you are looking for a stunning glass award that looks incredible and will stand out from the crowd we have two main glass awards that may be of interest, these are the Blue Diamond Glass Trophy and the Optic Triangle Rainbow Award.
Our Blue Diamond Glass Trophy is more traditional in the sense of its trophy shape, but the mixture of blue and clear glass looks fabulous, especially when matched with the cuts and shape of this glass, a tall trophy shape with a subtle blue sapphire panel and then a sturdy clear glass base which allows the blue to travel through the glass trophy when caught at different angles.
When it comes to rainbows of light reflecting across the room, there are not many glass awards that do it better than our Optic Triangle Rainbow Award, made up of different layers of crystal glass to create the shape of a triangle. This is stunning crystal glass award and it really does offer something that stands out from the crowd and looks incredible wherever it is placed, to be cherished for many years.
If you are looking for a glass award that stands out from the crowd while oozing sophistication and elegance then give us a call, we would be only too happy to help you find the right glass award for your needs.
