Award Titles and Words of Gratitude/Encouragement for Every Occasion

Finding the time and exact words to properly celebrate the sheer awesomeness of special people in our lives can prove to be quite difficult, especially in our current virtual and work from home world.

As humans, we thrive on physical connections and being able to hand someone a plaque, trophy, gift, or award certificate—we want to look that recipient directly in the eye, shake their hand or hug them, and say, “Thank you.”

We WILL be able to do that again, but don’t wait to celebrate achievements or show your gratitude. Time is of the essence, and recognition has never been more important.


Get Your Gratitude On

Since we do often feel challenged with words to capture that just-right sentiment, we’ve curated a nice, long list of inspirational and gratitude-filled verbiage and award ideas (along with some just-right products) to help get your gratitude on:

From simply dropping a quick note on someone’s desk or sending a trophy in the mail to having a company-wide appreciation event, what matters most to people is what you say and how you say it. Every employee is unique and recognition looks different to each and every one of them. Be mindful; be thoughtful; be generous; and celebrate them all fully!
