Recognize Employees With A Lapel Pin

How Can a Lapel Pin Be Used to Show Appreciation to Your Employees?​

Employees are a company’s most valuable asset. ​Employee pin

Duh. Sure, anyone in business knows that…or should. But here’s the thing, although we all realize employees should be appreciated doesn’t mean we’re all aware of the opportunities to reward, in small and significant ways, the level of recognition employees deserve. Read on to discover affordable alternatives for employee recognition.

Budgetary Restraints Have Made Employee Recognition Difficult

Employee recognition was established many years ago. It became evident that a good team needs to be acknowledged and rewarded for jobs well done. As such, companies and organizations have devised many ways to do that. Unfortunately, recent challenges like the pandemic, inflation and other factors have made it difficult, if not impossible, to make any gesture of thanks to their staff.

Here’s The Good News

As company owners, directors and administrative heads; you do have a time-honored alternative that is affordable and significant. The custom lapel pin can be vintage or modern, and can be customized to any design. Custom lapel pins are impactful. A person once mused that the first lapel pin he ever saw was on the President of the United States. He was struck at how the American flag looked against his dark blue suit jacket. That’s impactful. Small and significant gestures can make an immense impact. The examples of custom lapel pins conveying recognition are endless. Here are a few examples:

Achievement Pins

Acknowledging an individual or team when they achieve an objective or goal with a lapel pin is a classy move. Achievement pins go a long way in endorsing one’s hard work and success.

Service Pins

Anniversary pins for employees are one of the most significant of pins because it is given to people who have reached a milestone anniversary with the company or organization. A person who has reached a 5, 10, 15 or 20 year anniversary deserves to be recognized.

Company Logo Pins

These can be given to all team members to show solidarity, pride and promote the company or organization’s brand. Having the company logo worn by team members provides a symbiotic relationship between the organization and it’s employees.

Event Pins

A subtle yet impactful way to “kick the event up a notch” is to have Cloisonné lapel pins provided to attendees at company events or conferences. It is a wonderful way to commemorate the occasion. Why a Cloisonné pin? This type of pin captures fine details, contrasting colors and features a smooth finish. Many opt to order a Cloisonné pin for employee recognition.

Team Pins

Team building is always productive. Giving custom lapel pins to employees working on a specific team or department can build camaraderie and solidarity.
