The Importance of Bolstering Employee Recognition with Quality Promotional Products
Many business people think of promotional products such as custom pens, logo mugs and placards as useful tools for only building brand recognition and product awareness. These types of advertising specialty products are also perfect for employee reward and recognition programs. The high quality, low prices and virtually unlimited customization possibilities make promotional pens a great method of rewarding your key employees.
One of the most important emotions in humans is the need for positive reinforcement and recognition. Many business studies have demonstrated that it’s an essential component of employee and team motivation. And many businesses fall short in maintaining productive employee recognition and reward programs. In a ground breaking 2002 study conducted by the U.S. Office of Personnel Management, only 30 percent of respondents to a survey agreed with the statement that "Our organization's awards program provides me with an incentive to do my best."
Personalized pens offer the following benefits: Opportunity to imprint or engrave custom messages; great portability and visibility as employees will be able to display their recognition reward both in and out of the office; functionality – employees can actual use this type of recognition reward; longevity – custom pens are available from many suppliers that will provide years of trouble-free writing; low cost – promotional pens start at just pennies each; choices – logo pens are available in most all colors and are offered in plastic, metal and wood construction.
There are a number of quality manufactures of custom pens including BIC, Waterman, Paper Mate and Pentel. There are also many reputable companies that provide the imprinting and engraving services offering these personalized pens at extremely affordable rates.
Show appreciation to your best employees and reward them appropriately and frequently with quality promotional products. It’s probably one of the most profitable investments your company can make.
