How to Recognize Excellence: Crystal Awards and More

People love to be recognized for their accomplishments. It is a proven fact that people respond much better to positive reinforcement than criticism. Getting recognized for success makes people want to continue that positive behavior even more. One way to recognize excellence is by using crystal awards. But before you present that award, you should plan the ceremony and your speech.

Plan a Ceremony

It is important to plan the event. It may be casual or formal. Choose a venue; this may help you decide how formal the event is. Whether it’s “just at the office,” or somewhere else, it should be set up as a distinct, special event. It would be a good idea to invite people who are close to the award recipient. Invitations, even electronic ones, are a great way to turn the recognition ceremony into something of importance. On the invitation, notify everyone about the attire. Finally, plan the food according to the formality of your event.
Practice Your Speech

However you have planned the event, and no matter how many people are being recognized, make sure each recipient feels special. It would take away from the whole experience if you were receiving an award, and the presenter had nothing to say about you. It is important to plan the presentation, with at least a few notes of things you want to say. That way it doesn’t seem like you have no reason to present the award or like you didn’t feel it was important enough to plan it. Even better: practice your speech. It will make you feel more comfortable and help you to fine-tune it in advance.

Pick the Award

There is a huge variety of actual awards to choose from. You may just want a basic certificate, but you can make it even more impressive by framing it before you present it. You can do a medal like those received in a race. Plaques are extremely nice as well, and easy to hang in a home. Or you can choose a variety of trophies. Glass, acrylic, or crystal awards are all good options for recognizing a job well done.
