Research suggests that how you present an award is almost as important as the award itself. Critical to creating a positive, lasting impression is making sure that:
- Whatever award you have promised gets delivered on time and in the condition the recipient expects.
- Presentations are personalized – delivered either in person in front of colleagues, or to the home with a personal note and follow-up phone call. The more personalized the presentation, the more powerful the impact.
- The award is customized. Engraving a message or some other commemorative adornment adds a personal touch that further magnifies the sense of appreciation and long-term impact.
