Giving custom jewelry for recognition of your employees’ hard work at your annual achievement awards ceremony is a unique way to show how much you appreciate their efforts through the working year.
The options for what exactly to give the winners are numerous, from elegant necklaces and sparkling earrings for the ladies to executive cufflinks and refined tie clips for the gentlemen, but the question of when to hold the ceremony can only be answered by the organizers.
With a little forethought, different times of the year can provide certain benefits when holding an achievement awards night, with people being lifted by the holiday mood or told to prepare for the red carpet treatment. Other times of the year will help you to manage your budget more effectively, ensuring a grand time is had by all.
Deck the office halls
Choosing to hold your corporate achievement awards ceremony in the Christmas holiday season will ensure your employees are already in the right mindset for an enjoyable evening of giving and receiving, while offering a ready-made theme for the presentations.
As many companies hold office Christmas parties, the awards may be incorporated into the same event, providing a focal point to the night and ensuring there will be plenty for the guests to talk about.
It could also save the company money in only organizing one occasion; money that could be spent on the exquisite custom jewelry that will be so warmly received by the awards winners.
The academy of achievement awards
The most famous awards ceremony on Earth, the Oscars are typically held in late February or early March and provide the perfect cultural backdrop for your own achievement awards night, inspiring your employees to dress their very best with their own glamorous custom jewelry glistening in the spotlight.
A pre-awards period of mingling and posing for selfies on a red carpet will help to build up the atmosphere, while encouraging the winners to give impromptu Oscar-style speeches on stage after receiving their custom jewelry corporate prizes will guarantee the evening is one that your workforce will never forget. They may not be the greatest actors in the world, but they will have a great time pretending nonetheless.
Spring tax break
When buying custom jewelry as corporate gifts, the cost is able to be written off against your corporate tax at the end of the financial year, which in turn means giving less to the taxman and more to your deserving employees.
Of course, it might not be clear exactly how much you should realistically spend on your achievement awards if they are held too early in the year, but planning them for late spring means the tax returns will have been recently completed.
When finalizing the figures with one eye on a forthcoming achievements awards ceremony and the custom jewelry prizes that are still to be bought, it will be easier to judge exactly what can be spent to keep the claim against the tax as profitable for the company as it can be.
Holding the achievement awards just after this time will also help to make it a memorable evening, with the chance to hold them outside in the spring sunshine and at a time where they will be the sole focal point for your company and employees.
An annual achievement awards night is a wonderful way to reward your employees for their hard work throughout the year, while the variety and individual elegance inherent in custom jewelry makes it the perfect prize to give.
