Upgrade Your Awards and Recognition Experience

[tweet_box design=”box_08″ float=”none”]Your little slugger just hit a double off the pitcher, scoring his teammate from 1st base and winning the playoffs. YOU are the parent in charge of the Awards and Recognition Celebration…..what now?[/tweet_box]

What am I going to do now?

One of the biggest challenges facing any Manager, Coach,  Business Owner or Organization today, is keeping up morale. Getting people together for a Recognition Ceremony, presenting awards and enjoying each others company in a relaxed environment is a tough assignment these days. Work and school schedules will need to be coordinated, food catered or prepared, trophies bought or certificates printed are just a small part of the effort needed for a successful event. All of this before you even realize you need somewhere to actually stage the celebration.

The Slugger

You could book the place with the Rodent who hawks pizza. Maybe the local McDonalds has enough tables for the team. Another option is to clean your house top to bottom, lock the dog outside and then invite a bunch of little leaguers, parents, and friends over to celebrate.  What? None of these options sound terribly appealing? What other options are there for holding an Awards Ceremony or Recognition event?

The Party Planner

Imagine for a moment that you are the HR Manager for a small company. The Owner is concerned about employee morale and has tasked you with working to improve things around the office. You just had a record-breaking sales month. A celebration seems like a terrific way to say thanks and recognize your hardworking employees. Just one little thing stands in the way of doing just that, space. In your office, you have resorted to storing office supplies under a bathroom cabinet. You enclosed a urinal in a tall cabinet. Just so you can store extra toilet paper and a dustpan. Since you have 20 employees, just getting them all in the office at one time is difficult. How are you going to arrange an event to say thanks for all their efforts?

The Association

It happened, it actually happened, “why in the world did I run for the HOA Board?” you suddenly think to yourself.  Not only did you throw your hat in the ring, you were actually elected President of the Board. In addition, the Board Secretary will soon come to you and explain you can no longer hold Board Meetings at the library. You have a small HOA and raising dues is HUGELY unpopular. Booking a hotel meeting room or space at a restaurant where they will expect you to not only pay but order food and drinks also, is unthinkable.
