Celebrating Your Stars

As a business owner you will know that is important to celebrate the stars in your business. It’s important to focus on staff recognition to those that do go the extra mile are appreciated for their hard work and feel proud to represent your company.
But how can you really celebrate the stars within your business? Why not consider a glass star award? If you think that someone in your organisation has been a superstar then what better way is there of telling them this than by giving them a glass star award?
Presentation of the glass star awards could take place at your annual or bi-annual staff party; often the owner of a business will take to the stage at this time so why not turn the staff party into a little awards ceremony? You could even encourage your staff to dress in ‘Oscar’ themed clothing to give them a little clue of what is to come.
The glitz, glamour, sophistication of the event will be shown through the men in tuxedos and ladies in ball gowns and silky dresses. Everyone will look fabulous and as you take to the stage to welcome everyone to the annual staff party and thank them for their hard work over the last year, you can then add that there are some people that really have gone the extra mile and call them up to present them with their very own glass star award.
The great thing about high quality personalised and engraved glass star awards is that they can have the company logo on, names and wording of your choice but because they look so good your staff will be proud to put them on display in their own homes.
After having your first ever awards ceremony and celebrating the stars within your business, you will start to notice other members of your organisation will become rising stars as they can see there is recognition within their business and peoples hard work gets noticed.
Before you know it you’ll have a whole organisation of shining stars that are making your business a huge success, but don’t worry – we offer bulk buying discounts on our glass star awards so it won’t cost you as much as you think!

Do Recognition Awards and Programs Work?

Successful business owners all over the world support recognition programs and recognition awards to achieve more from their businesses. If you have focused and motivated staff members that are all heading in the right direction you will have a more successful business so in our opinion, yes, recognition awards and recognition programs do work.
But then, as a trophy and glass award supplier we would say that wouldn’t we? Of course we are going to be a little bit bias; after all we sell recognition awards. So much so that when new people start within our team we tell them that we really do have the best job in the world, we help people get recognised for the amazing work they do.
Not sure if recognition programs and recognition awards could work for you? Let’s have a look at the facts for recognition programs;
• 90% of voluntary resignations within a business are because team members feel under-appreciated by their managers or by the business as a whole.
• On average, key staff members within a business cost around 150% of their quarterly salary to replace them.
• Companies that start recognition awards and recognition programs within the workplace experience a 50% lower turnover rate on their staff.
• Just 30% of staff members will improve their performance after being criticised, whereas 90% of staff members will improve their performance after being praised or recognised.
The most popular reasons that businesses use recognition programs are as follows;
• To create a positive work environment for those in the workplace
• To motivate and encourage high performance from staff members
• To reinforce desired behaviours from high achieving and hard working staff members
• To increase morale within the workplace and among staff members.

Tips For Awarding In The Workplace

Giving glass awards and glass trophies in the workplace can be a great way to increase motivation and boost morale in the workplace; however it is important to develop and implement effective awards for your team while avoiding some of the worst mistakes you can make.
We have put together some top tips that will help give you a guideline for awarding staff in the workplace;
• Don’t reward the basics like turning up for work, instead have glass awards that need to be worked for, that need to be won and not just awarded by default. A glass award needs to be won for outstanding performance in the workplace, not just for turning up at work because that’s what they get paid for.

• It’s really important not to have glass awards that involve ‘chance’, if someone has done something that deserves recognition they shouldn’t then have their name put in a hat to see if they ‘might’ win the glass award. This can be a sure fire way to de-motivate your staff if someone who has done the basics wins the award by sheer good luck.

• When creating awards for your work place, make sure there is no way to play the system so people can win a glass award. If for example, you are giving an award for attendance you may notice attendance dropping so it can go up the next month to win the glass award. If one person cheats the system the rest will follow and overall morale will drop.

• Have a think about what is important to your staff, it might not always by money instead it may be a Saturday off, a meal for two at a local restaurant or cream cakes on the lunch break. Providing an additional gift or incentive alongside a glass award or trophy can be a really nice way to make the receiver feel extra special.

• When it’s time to announce the award winner don’t just slide a glass award across the table quietly, instead make a big deal of it. Have a glass award that they can keep forever, or until the next month when it’s handed to the next employee. Recognition by peers means so much to your workforce, so go big and get the team celebrating their win with them.

If you’re not sure about the best glass award or trophy for your team then give us a call, we’re always happy to offer advice or guidance.

Even More Disappointment At Formula One For Lewis Hamilton

It seems that Bernie Ecclestone had to deal with a very unhappy Lewis Hamilton at Formula One recently when Lewis complained that he was not impressed with the shocking state of the Formula One trophies.
Lewis Hamilton was so unimpressed with the Formula One trophies that he even protested to Formula Ones chief executive while personally criticising the man in charge of the trophies at Formula One Management.
It has been recently reported that Lewis Hamilton said “We just need to make better trophies – it’s shocking how bad the trophies are.” Going on to say; “The trophies are as good as…at go kart level. It was really bad. Formula Renault was just little boxes with a car in the middle. Formula 3 was good and at the beginning of my Formula One carer the trophies were really good, but now they are just terrible man. They are so bad”.
It’s a little known fact that Lewis Hamilton keeps hold of all the original trophies while his team keep the replicas of the trophies at the factory in Brackley, Northamptonshire. However recently the interest of sponsors has been taking over and historic trophies have been relegated to secondary prizes once the awards ceremony is over.
Last year Lewis Hamilton was presented with the Santander trophy and he said “Where’s the gold trophy Man?” – can you imagine how embarrassing that must have been for the award giver? This is a concern for many people purchasing the glass awards and trophies for their awards ceremonies and events.
Here at Fen Regis Trophies we offer only the highest quality glass awards and glass trophies to ensure that each glass award that is given is received as an honour and the award giver is proud to present an award of its type.
Maybe we’ll drop Lewis Hamilton and Bernie Ecclestone a line and see if we can offer any advice in upcoming awards, we’re always happy to help!

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?
