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 a 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 the 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.
