Ideas for Staff Recognition Boards
Affirm your staff by recognising their hard work and the ways they have made the workplace better. (business colleagues preparing for business meeting image by Vladimir Melnik from

If you have been invited to serve on a "staff recognition board" or an "employee recognition committee," then it is likely that you will be tasked with coming up with ways to honour, motivate and extend gratitude to employees who work at your company or organisation. Staff recognition often is the role of the Human Resources Department at your workplace. Think creatively and try to work with a budget while still trying to make sure staff and employees feel good about themselves at work.

Hand-Written Thank You Cards

Employ the help of a staff recognition board to write personal thank you notes to staff and employees at your company or organisation. You can use the same greeting card for all employees -- such as a greeting card designed specifically for company communications -- but you can ask that members of the board write personal notes of appreciation to individual employees for birthdays, work anniversaries, major holidays and for specific work accomplishments. Make sure that all of the board members sign the cards.

Employee Recognition Program

Work with the staff recognition board members to devise an "Employee Recognition Program." This program can be centred around points, advises the University of Washington. Managers can give points for employees' efforts toward team work, perfect attendance and getting to work on time. Employees can win gift cards once a month as an award for having the most points.

Appreciation Days

Depending on the budget of your company or organisation, plan an appreciation day for staff and employees. This can be a catered event, a surprise event or a formal event at a hotel or restaurant. Also consider an appreciation day event in which the "managers supply, cook and serve food," advises the University of Washington.
