As it comes to the end of the year – there’s literally weeks left! – businesses begin to assess the performance of the business over the year just passed. Were targets met? Did staff exceed expectations? If the answer is yes to both of these questions, you might want to reward your staff for their substantial achievements over the year. An award night is the perfect way of doing this.
Is an award night beneficial?
Whilst it might be the nice option to take, nice isn’t always an option in business – there has to be an advantage to you; is there an advantage of an award night? There’s certainly an advantage – multiple actually.
Firstly, it boosts morale. Evidently, if your staff are already exceeding your expectations, morale must be pretty good. Regardless, staff can reach the point of burnout: A period of time where they’ve lost motivation and are therefore unproductive. Burnout can be caused by lack of appreciation from those they’re working for, even if the staff were initially happy. So, keeping that in mind, planning and hosting an event can symbolise your appreciation of their efforts, guaranteeing their desire to succeed and impress you further.
Secondly, it can help a team to work more cohesively and more productively. As you’re rewarding your staff for already exceeding expectations, this might seem unnecessary. However, if you can have your staff performing better as a team as a result of the award night, why wouldn’t you take advantage of the opportunity?
Is an award night suitable for my business?
Now you’ve decided an award night is a good idea and effective for many businesses, you might be questioning whether it’s a good idea for your business.
At ATM we’ve worked with international blue-chip companies on massive award nights, where hundreds of staff have been recognised with rewards. This doesn’t mean your business must be a large business to have an award night, however. We’ve also worked alongside businesses with very few staff as well. This means that no matter the size of your business, an award night is certainly appropriate if it’s what you want to do.
Whether an award night is suitable or not doesn’t depend on budget either. Whatever the budget you have available, we can create the awards night that you’re looking for. Whilst a smaller budget can be restrictive, our resourcefulness means that we can still create an exciting event for you.
How can ATM Events help me to arrange it?
At ATM Events, we understand that it’s hard for you. When you’re in charge of every day proceedings at your business, you don’t have the time to be taking on the responsibility of arranging this event yourself, nor do you want to assign your staff to handling it. Fortunately, we offer you a different option. We have a dedicated team who are focused and committed to make sure that you have a successful award night. You don’t have to worry yourself with the little details as our team will deal with all of that for you.
What do we do for you?
To guarantee the success of your awards night, we perform a number of tasks, all of which contribute to the bigger picture – the actual night.
Finding the venue: First, and most important, we offer a free venue finding service. This is obviously important as without a venue, your event isn’t going to happen!
Once we’ve found the perfect venue for your award night, we can also construct a conference set that’s tailored to your needs specifically. You just tell us your requirements and we’ll ensure that the result is what you’re expecting.
Audio visual: We can provide you with the complete audio-visual equipment package that you need for your event. This will help you to portray your message at the highest quality.
It’s always a pleasure to work with professionals with whom know and fully understand what it takes to deliver a perfect event. ATM Events once again delivered us a brilliant family fun day which was enjoyed by all.
We have been using ATM Events for the past 6 years and each time they come up with something different for our staff awards evening. Their dedication to every aspect of our event is always second to none and we will certainly continue to use ATM for any future events.
ATM Events provided a fantastic service for our event. The staff were extremely friendly and bubbly, and ensured that the event ran smoothly right from the set up through to the de rig at the end of the evening. Right from the start the ATM Events team were brilliant at working with us to plan and co-ordinate a successful event even given the event had a very short time frame.
