Whether you’re looking to give a great ‘atta boy or girl’ to an associate, or reward someone for a job well done, or simply say ‘thank you’… it’s not as difficult as you may think. You can easily surprise and delight your employees by exercising some creativity without necessarily presenting grand or expensive gestures.  Here are some simple ideas that will create improved culture and happy faces throughout your organization!

1. Perfect Attendance

Sometimes overlooked, this is an easy way to recognize the associate who truly delivers for you each and every day.    You can either publish the incentive or simply establish a time period to track attendance and then reward your top associates!  You don’t need to break the bank either, shop our items listed under $100.



2. Every Year of Tenure

This is another employee incentive program that doesn’t cost much but can make your team members feel appreciated. Offer a reward for each year your employees have worked for your organization.  Maybe you establish a “butterfly award” and each year, the associate receives a different color of this stunning Baccarat butterfly.  The more years each employee has worked at your company, the more butterflies they earn….perfect for their desk or home office.

3. Telecommuting Rockstar


With the proliferation of home offices and the inter-connectivity of all things, telecommuting has never been easier. In fact, team members no longer have to report to an office every day — or even live in the same state, country, or continent.  Do you have someone who works remotely and is a VIP team player and deserving of recognition?  These Orrefors Starlight Awards make a great gift.

4. Health and Wellness Hero

Do you have associates who take good care of their health?  Maybe they’ve started the company’s Yoga class or encouraged others….the results can have a profound effect on the happiness and productivity of your team and improve culture.  Recognize and reward with an organic motif spa candle like these:

5. Volunteer Champion

Can you think of any associates who volunteer in the community?  Maybe they help to manage the annual Turkey Trot in town, or work with disabled youth, give their time to civic groups?  What a great behavior to reward and recognize!
