“Social recognition is the foundation for creating a more human workplace—one which fosters a culture of recognition and appreciation while empowering individuals, strengthening relationships, and pr...
We like to have fun while working hard so today we celebrated National Blame Someone Else Day.
While we blame each other for the little things, we know we sink or swim as a team. We truly are a Team at FineAwards.com and it takes a total Team effort to deliver for our customers. What can we create for you?
It was a huge treat to visit our client's brand new headquarters on Tuesday.

From the nautical colors and flags to the layout that encourages interdepartmental communication to the replica restaurant/kitchen for training, it truly is an office of the future well fit for a company pre...

If you’re an employer, you might think employee recognition is not necessary. After all, your employees are being compensated for their time and work, so why should you go the extra mile to recognize them?
Human motivation isn’t so cut and dry. Most people have the innate drive to feel like they matter, that what they do has meaning and they’re contributing to what they belong to, whether it is family, church, organization, or society at large.
For your employees, recog...

Yoremi opened up all her presents and was thrilled with all the gifts for her newborn. You can never have too many diapers. She also received a nice gift certificate from the staff to help with her needs on...
Employee retention is a tricky thing. Average employees now leave after 3.8 years and are expected to cycle through jobs more often than the previous generation. So why bother trying to retain them at all?
Perhaps another way of looking at it is to know why they leave in first place. The often-stated reasons are not enough pay, not enough recognition, not enough connection to the big picture, and not getting along with management.
From here, you can engineer your compan...
Employees thrive on recognition. When companies show their employees appreciation for exceptional work, employee satisfaction and retention increase. If an employee does decide to leave, they will likely do so with positive feelings about the company they worked for.
An employee retention strategy is important for attracting and keeping top talent. While a certain level of attrition is expected, recognizing employee performance will bode well for companies. There’s a reaso...
