Reward and recognition events are a potent way to keep your team members engaged and motivated. And truthfully, what business doesn’t want that, especially in an uncertain climate of well-documented staff and skills shortages?

Your people are your greatest assets. It’s business critical to acknowledge their efforts and make them feel valued. For this purpose, reward and recognition events are your secret weapons for:

  • Boosting morale
  • Nurturing team spirit
  • Increasing productivity
  • Cultivating loyalty

In fact, benefits and rewards platform Perkbox goes a step further. Their recent article throws retention in to the mix: “You can put the three of them in a Maslow-like pyramid, starting with Recognition as the basic need on the bottom. You follow it up with Reward, and eventually, you get to Retain.”  

It’s clear reward and recognition events are a persuasive way to keep your talent sticky in turbulent times – or at any time! And here are just a few event ideas to get your creative juices flowing.

Let’s take a closer look to help you decide.

Spectacular Awards Events

Engaging Team Building Activities

Team building events are the perfect opportunity for colleagues to bond and develop relationships outside the workplace. Think team challenges, outdoor adventures, or even a company picnic.

Imagine rounding off an energetic day in the great wide open, huddled around dark wood vintage trestle tables, wrapped in fluffy blankets, supping artisanal cider from oak barrel bars and toasting marshmallows on sticks under an idyllic rustic star-scape.

It’s life affirming stuff your squad won’t forget in a hurry.

VIP Treatment in the Workplace

Reward and recognition events don’t have to be in hired venues or off-site locations. On the contrary, it’s a lovely idea to treat your top grafters to a special breakfast or lunch at the office.

Or, how about the sense of occasion afternoon tea generates? Hiring an exquisite afternoon tea package ensures a hassle-free experience, with all the crockery, cutlery, glassware and serving equipment you need to lay an Instagram worthy table.

Plus, you can hand out gifts or bonuses, or even some paid time off work if you’re feeling extra generous. It’s an inspired way to show your appreciation for hard work and dedication.
