Employee Recognition and Appreciation

Helping your employees understand how much you appreciate them is part of your managerial job. However, sometimes communicating this celebration can be difficult. So here are some ways to help your employee recognition of a job well done by using personalized ribbons.

Using Custom Top Ribbons for Employee Recognition and Appreciation

Recognize Achievement and Celebrating Excellence

Recognizing employee and colleague achievements has incredible outcomes. When you celebrate their excellence with a tangible award, they will respond with increased motivation and know that you appreciate their hard work.

When you reward good behavior and recognize achievement, you set the foundation for how someone needs to act. In addition, taking the time to acknowledge good behavior lets the recipient and others around them know what you expect from them. So, giving out rewards for good behavior, such as staying on task, will help shape how your office, classroom or other employees will continue to act.

As a leader, teacher or manager, you have a responsibility to ensure that your employees or students know how much you care. When you celebrate even small achievements, you are helping those you lead to see their excellence. This recognition will help them feel appreciated and know their contributions are welcome and wanted.

PRO TIP: The quality of the reward will affect the quality of the return work, so make sure your awards are high-quality!

Custom Top Ribbons for Employee Recognition

Employee recognition starts with ribbons! Seriously…start recognizing your employees with these fantastic full color awards. Personalize each of the following ribbons with custom text, a company or event logo and full color graphics. Some of these options even come with event cards so that you can date the award!

These ribbons are also a great way to give awards. Design the ribbons with a message of congratulations so that when someone wins a contest or accomplishes something extraordinary, you are prepared with a gift of gratitude.

Customize each full color ribbon with a professional message to thank every employee for a job well done. Match colors to your business logo, or custom design the ribbon to feature nearly any message to keep up your employee recognition.

Another great thing about these custom top ribbons is that they are completely flat. This allows them to be used as a bookmark or another marker or hanging object so that your employees will keep them around.

Trading Office Noise for Summer Fun

From the noise of machines to the buzz of a social activity, summer is definitely more fun in the sun.

Mondays through Fridays in the Coller Industries building are always noisy. From the ticking of keyboards in marketing to phone calls about orders in customer service, the noise is constant. And the loudest place of all is production and shipping. With the laser machines going full strength and the packing tape being stretched out to wrap each shipment securely, each employee is focused on one thing: our customers.

From the creaking of plastic under bare feet in the bounce house to the gentle murmur of a crowd while they attempted to socialize while eating delicious barbecue, Coller Industries’ employees created a unique sound at the annual company barbecue get-together.

As always, the bounce house was a hit with the kids. And someone brought water guns for the kids to play with as well. While the adults chatted away, the kids ran around chasing each other, and everyone had a blast!

Joe Morely’s Bar-B-Q pulled it off again this year. With spare ribs, two types of sliced meat smothered in barbecue sauce, potato salad, macaroni and cheese, baked beans and rolls, the spread was amazing. To finish off the meal was a giant apple pie and a couple of strawberry cheesecakes. Oh, and cookies for the kids who were still chasing each other with the water guns!

While the noise of the office is anything but mundane, it’s always nice to be out with colleagues and to have the variety of the outdoors and social conversations. We want to say thank you to Coller Industries for providing such a wonderful event for their employees. The company works just as hard at keeping their employees happy as the employees do for the customers.

And, here’s some noise from those busy employees:

Patrick, Production and Shipping Manager, said, “This was our best barbecue yet! And, having the bounce house was great for the kids. My daughter loved it. But, by far my favorite part of working at Coller Industries is all the cool people I work with.”

Hannah, Customer Service Manager, said, “Even though the free food is always a plus, it’s great to see everyone in a relaxed environment and see all the kids. We have such a great group of employees, and it feels more like we’re friends than coworkers.”

Fun in the Sun with Coller Industries

Summer is always a wonderful time here at Coller Industries!

playing at the park with coller industries at the summer bbq and partyWe’re busy getting out orders and making sure we stay on task so that our customers get what they ordered. But, we also know how to have fun! Every year, Coller Industries throws a Summer BBQ Bash for the employees. And every year it seems just to get better.

The party is held at Germania Park (a local park here in Utah) every year. It’s a great place with plenty of space for all the employees to come and enjoy the food and company. There is always fun for all ages, and the employees were encouraged to bring their families.

This year included a bounce house for the kids and water guns for anyone who wanted to play. We also had fantastic food provided by Joe Morley’s BBQ. The spread they brought was fabulous and fed everyone till they couldn’t eat anymore.

As employees, we would like to give a special thank you to Coller Industries and especially the Coller family for providing such an enjoyable activity for their employees.

And here’s how we do that:

Mathew, Web Design and Development, said, “Being with family and friends was the best part. I love being with people that I can socialize with and be comfortable around.”

Lydia, Customer Service, said, “The food was my favorite part because it was all really good and there was nothing I didn’t enjoy.”

Charles, Sample Requests, said, “The ribs were delicious!” He also said, “I think we have an exceptional staff. I work for a very special company who really cares about its employees. And the result is that the employees have developed long lasting relationships.”

Amanda, Solutions Manager, said, “It was really HOT! But, my favorite part would have to be the BBQ. Coller Industries always tries out new and exciting BBQ places every year.”

Merry Christmas from Our Desk To Yours!

coller industries incorporated annual employee christmas party with fun prizes and a jugglerColler Industries enjoys spoiling their employees! And we all love accepting it, especially at the annual Christmas party!

Now, don’t get us wrong. We care about our customers too. And part of that caring means that we are always giving back to our clients and our local community. But, it also means that we are regularly returning benefits to our employees and trying to make work as fun (and productive) as possible.

So, every year Coller Industries invites all the staff and their families to an annual Christmas party. This event includes lunch, games, presents and wonderful conversations! And this year, we had a special treat of local juggler Marcus Wilson.

 

Marcus, Funny Man Who Does Trickscoller industries incorporated annual employee christmas party with fun prizes and a juggler
(Marcus found out long ago) that as long as he was on stage people seemed to enjoy his obnoxious antics. In high school, while working at a restaurant, he learned to juggle with rolls and oranges and fell in love with useless tricks and odd skills. At the age of 22, armed with a handful of these tricks and a desire to entertain, he began doing shows. About five years later, he began performing in comedy clubs. Since then, he has been making his living performing.

As per tradition, the Red Lion Hotel in Salt Lake City hosted the Christmas party. This has been a favorite venue for our annual party for many years. The hotel had an excellent buffet of food for lunch including prime rib and salmon for the adults and macaroni and cheese with chicken fingers for the youngsters. And don’t forget the desserts: cheesecake, chocolate cake and pumpkin pie were all there!

Because, well, we just love name tags! This year all the adults received mugs with our logo on them and a name tag in the shape of either a bell or a tree ornament. Each mug had a handful of candy included. And all the kids who were there received a present chosen just for them.

 

As employees, we would like to give a special thank you to Coller Industries.

And especially the Coller family and our office manager, Eboni, for providing such an enjoyable activity for their employees. And here’s how we say that thank you!

So, every year Coller Industries throws a summer BBQ bash that includes lunch, games and wonderful conversations!

CapturePeople are still talking about how wonderful the catering was this year! Hats off to Meier’s BBQ & Catering for our fabulous meal which included: fresh fruit (melons, grapes, kiwi, strawberries and pineapple), macaroni shrimp salad, potato salad, baked beans, orange glazed rolls, brownies and not to forget the boneless ribs and barbecue chicken!

We had a bounce house for the kids. Another treat this year was goody bags for all of the kids that came. There was a whistle, a bottle of scented bubbles, a beaded necklace, a light-up yo-yo, and some candy. Most of the kids were blowing bubbles and playing with their new toys.

Joey (Customer Service): I think it’s awesome the company does things like this. I want (the Coller’s) to know I do appreciate what they do for us. It was a good time.

Audra (Purchasing Agent): I usually go every year! (It’s always) good food, good people and fun for the kids.

Rod (Programmer): I went this year to enjoy good food with friends and co-workers. I enjoy their company outside of work. It is nice to meet with them and their families in a casual setting. It always nice to talk with the Coller’s about other things besides work. I saw the children having a lot of fun with the bounce house and the gift bags they were given.

Slim (Quality Control): There was a much larger turn out this year. We had lots of fun. There were more people than I have seen come to any of the summer parties in the past. I always enjoy them, so I always go. And, I almost always bring my guitar!
