3 Ways to Acknowledge a Job Well Done

Forward thinking and effective organisations realise the importance of acknowledging when work has been done well. In order for employees to feel satisfied and to have their efforts validated, an overt expression of gratitude and recognition of their efforts is most significant.

Of course, there are a number of different ways in which to acknowledge a job well done. Here we take a look at three of the best:

1: Gift baskets

You would be hard pressed to find a person that does not appreciate receiving a quality gift basket and believe this to be a fitting acknowledgement for their hard work and achievements. Corporate gift baskets and gift hampers come in a variety of styles and can either be chosen from the ‘menu’ of an online gift basket specialist or tailored to suit individual tastes and preferences.

Chocolate gift baskets make a wonderful gift of acknowledgement for those who appreciate sweet treats. In fact, many people choose to give a chocolate hamper even when they do not know a person so well, because it is generally a safe and appreciated choice – the vast majority of us really do appreciate fine quality chocolate products.

Similarly, wine gift baskets are an outstanding way to acknowledge a person’s professional efforts and accomplishments when they are a connoisseur or simply enjoy drinking wine. When you choose and purchase your gift basket from a respected and credible online retailer, you can feel assured that your gift recipient will receive products of excellent quality – the quality of which you would want to represent your organisation.

2:  Picnic hampers

The gift of a picnic hamper that is loaded with delicious and great quality products for a picnic as well as all the utensils, plates and glasses that you need to have a fabulous outdoor meal, makes a wonderful gift of acknowledgement for a job well done.

Rather than giving an employee something that is tokenistic or for which they have little use, it is far more impressive and worthwhile to give a gift that will be used many times and is both practical and a little decadent at the same time.

3:  Workplace activities

Within the workplace itself, there are many ways that work that has been done well can be acknowledged. Some organisations choose to give teams or groups that have been highly successful a special day or fun activity as a reward for their hard work.

In other organisations, acknowledgement of a job well done may come in the form of public acknowledgement (such as an email, entry in a staff newsletter or special mention at a staff meeting), diversification of work (such as offering staff the possibility of new or different work tasks) or financial reward.

In all organisations, the importance of appropriately acknowledging work that has been done well is tremendously important. Employees like to know that their efforts do not go unnoticed and that their contributions are valued by their employing organisation.

While there are many ways to appropriately recognise work that has been done well, awarding a quality gift basket or picnic hamper or facilitating unusual and appreciated workplace activities, tend to always be well received by staff. Such gifts also communicate a very positive message about your organisation and the respect that it has for its greatest asset, its employees.
