How Presenting Staff with Reward Badges Can Affect Your Business

Having reward schemes in place in your business is a great way to say thank you and show that you value your staff members, which can also increase staff retention and motivation. Here’s how using Reward Badges can positively impact your business.

Using Reward Badges to Thank Staff  

Badges are a meaningful symbol of your appreciation to your team’s loyalty and dedication, with more companies taking on this idea. You may have seen that big retailers such as Costa and Starbucks are now jumping on board with reward badges, helping to motivate employees.

There are many awards that employers and managers can give to their staff, with award of service being one of them. This recognises long standing dedication to the job, and presents an opportunity to an employer to thank someone for their service and contribution over time to the company.

A creative way of doing this is having different badges for each band of service, for example a different colour or material for 10, 20 or 50 years of service. This could include the design of your badges, or the plating.  

Of course, reward badges don’t just need to be for length of service. You can also use badges to celebrate a milestone of commend your team member on a job well done.

How Reward Badges Impact Company Culture

Customised Service Award Badges can be a valuable component of your employee recognition and motivation efforts and can help your company to instill pride among workers. This can also contribute to positive company culture. Reward badges reach all of your staff, regardless of role or responsibility in the company.

You could even present a service award badge at a special event, thoroughly helping to motivate your team members and instill pride with your employees.

Make the experience even more special by awarding service badges in customised presentation boxes, which could match the colour or design of your badges.

How Reward Badges Increase Brand Reputation

Rewarding your staff can also raise your business reputation among customers, which you can also use in your marketing efforts. When awarding your staff with awards, always ensure you post this to your Social Media platforms to leverage the opportunity to build your brand awareness.

Acknowledging workers for their service and contribution to your company is an effective way to retain your team, as well as aiding your marketing strategy and increasing brand reputation.

Case Study: Celebrating Vaisakhi with Personalised Merchandise

This month we have been working closely with charities to help them to celebrate Vaisakhi – a Sikh New Year festival that also commemorates 1699, the year Sikhism was born as a collective faith.

Midland Langar Seva Service

Midland Langar Seva Service is a charity that helps people in the UK by providing hot food and drink to those who are vulnerable, including those homeless, in schools and those on the poverty line. They operate on a Sikh based ethos – helping and supporting all people regardless of social status.

We helped MLSS by providing logo pin badges – this helps to promote their charity and get the word out there or all the hard work that they continuously undertake.

Langar Aid/Khalsa Aid

During Vaisakhi, we have also helped Langar Aid – a project by Khalsa Aid. Langar Aid helps to serve the homeless and vulnerable by providing vital food and water where it is needed. Langar Aid also provides support and help to those in need, by setting up an environment that is safe and helps to make people feel valued.

We supplied Langar and Khalsa Aid with Promotional merchandise that can help to promote the amazing work that they do for humanity worldwide. This included wristbands, pens and trolley coins – all of which can create awareness and raise much-needed funds to help the charity to continue to do all of the good work.

We work with multiple charities to create promotional merchandise, helping them to advertise their charity and raise important funds. Get in touch today to find out how we can help you.

Case Study: How Trolley Coins Have Helped Raise Funds for Northampton Punjabi Association Charities

Northampton Punjabi Association

Northampton Punjabi Association is a local community group who celebrates the Punjabi culture with events to raise money for worthy charity causes. They have recently raised £3000 for charity. They did this through having a Hawaiian themed party for guests. Along with the fancy dress, they also had trolley coins made to raise awareness and funds for the charity.

How Trolley Coins Help to Raise Money

Trolley Coins represent a pound coin, and are used to raise awareness and are used for fundraising. As they are used often in everyday life, trolley coins have high exposure to users.

Despite their name, trolley coins can also be used for changing room lockers. They also usually come with keychains, allowing users to hang them on their keyring.

Using both sides of the coin can help to increase impact, allowing your charity message or logo to be viewed thousands of times. 

Trolley coins come with a low cost, allowing your organisation to save money whilst making a high impact, further helping you to fundraise those crucial amounts.

We offer a variety of high quality finished trolley coins that are perfect for any charity.
