Recognition Breeds Success: the Power of corporate Gifts by Perkal

"Recognizing business achievements and milestones remains one of the simplest and most effective ways to boost morale and pride among employees, your associates, and even your clients. No matter what the size or nature of your business, there are always reasons to put someone in the spotlight for a job well done.

Working together not only creates goodwill, it also promotes loyalty, increases length of stay with a company, and encourages staff to work more effectively at their jobs. Corporate gift giving has also been proven effective at strengthening client relationships, and at encouraging repeat business and allegiance to your organization.

The bottom line? Corporate gifts and recognition awards have an intrinsic value far greater than their price tags! What's more, your options today are nearly endless - gone is the era when gold watches and pen sets were the only acceptable choices.

These days, great-looking and unique corporate gifts are in abundance, and the best place to begin your search is at Things Remembered. We offer branding on all of our products, each with the space you need to personalize your gift not only with a name and date, but also with a sentiment that beautifully captures the importance of the achievement.

Opportunities For Recognition Are Everywhere, Every Work Day

Throughout the business year, there are countless opportunities to recognize staff, associates and clients. On a monthly, or even weekly basis, many companies initiate recognition programs in which top salespeople or outstanding customer service actions are spotlighted. Individually, associates can also be recognized with unique engraved gifts for numerous personal achievements, such as team leadership, volunteerism, years of service, and new account acquisition. Whether the recognition is for a large group or a few individuals, making a formal presentation at an all-staff meeting is a great way to celebrate any achievement, and give the recipient the office-wide acknowledgement he or she deserves.

End-of-year and the holiday season are two other traditional times to express appreciation for continued business relationships or a job well done. For both your clients and staff, wehaveover 3000 products of which just one will make a unique and meaningful gift.

Personalized gifts for business come in all shapes, sizes and styles; from the more traditional engraved clocks and plaques to elegant personalized desk accessories to engraved sculptures in glass, wood and metal. How you decide which gift is right for the people on your recognition gift involves a few key considerations.

First, consider the personality of your organization. Some companies view themselves as more traditional, others as ""leading edge,"" and they want their gifts (to staff as well as clients) to reflect this personality. If you're the designated gift shopper, but you're unsure about your company's character, look to your interior decor, such as furnishings and artwork, for the best clues.

Second, consider your budget. If you are charged with choosing several gifts, you may need to set a limit, and confine your search to a particular price range. For clients, many companies choose the same gift for each to be equitable, but others may rank clients based on years of service or the size of the account to make a gift selection. There are no right or wrong solutions - it's simply a matter of management decisions and preferences.

Third, don't forget to consider the personalities and styles of the recipients! An engraved business card case that seems perfect for the sales department may not appeal to the accounting department; or the personalized clock you choose for your bank client may be less appropriate for your restaurant client, and so on.

The Value Of Loyalty - Priceless!

Recognition gifts and awards have been a staple of good business operations, since the first employee was hired, and the first client acquired. From the days of personalized calendars and engraved silver trays, the concept of recognizing achievement has grown into today's well-organized recognition program, and Things Remembered has kept pace with this evolution; offering the most unique, quality gifts available to recognize business achievements and celebrate life's milestones.
