Going back to work after the holidays isn’t easy. With the New Year just beginning, it’s more important than ever to make sure company morale is high. Acknowledging your team members’ hard work and keeping them motivated throughout the year will help keep your company moving forward. You might be asking yourself, “How can I do this?” Well, one way to keep your work environment healthy is to throw some friendly competition into the mix! Holding quarterly competitions might be the best solution to fix employee attitudes, while also keeping them engaged in the work they’re doing.
And we all know you can’t have a competition without a prize. At United Trophy Orlando we can help you find everything you need for your prize winner from personalized trophies to recognition plaques.
To help get your team motivated this New Year, we’ve put together a list of healthy workplace competitions for you to try out with your team.
Employee of the month
Standout performances deserve recognition! The winner of this contest is generally someone who accomplished all of his or her goals for the month and stands out to fellow employees. Get the whole team involved by having them vote on who they think deserves the title the most. We recommend getting a branded plaque to commemorate this honor.
You never know who’s going to win this contest! For each goal employees reaches, enter their name into the raffle. At the end of each quarter, choose one name to be the winner. We recommend rewarding the winner with a 3-D laser crystal.
Maybe you’re looking for something that will help destress the team and bring everyone together at the same time. What brings people together more than food? Managers can serve as judges and employees who want to participate can bring in their best dish. We recommend a nice ribbon or certificate for the winners.
Get everyone off their feet by holding a sport tournament. Whether it’s softball, basketball or baseball, rent out the field for an afternoon and let your employees blow off some steam. We recommend providing participation medals for everyone and a big trophy for the champs.
If you need ways to encourage your staff to work harder and up productivity this year, try bringing some friendly competition into your workplace. A participation ribbon, personalized sign or trophy can go a long way. And while you’re at it, make United Trophy your go-to awards and trophy shop. We have everything you need to thank your team for their accomplishments and hard work. Call us at 407-841-2525 or stop by one of our three convenient locations to place an order today.
