Ways to Honor the Employee of the Month

January 27th, 2016

Employee of the Month


Back in 2006, there was a movie called Employee of the Month, starring Dane Cook and Dax Shepard. They were rivals at a big discount store called Super Club, and the premise of the movie involved both of them trying to win the attention (and love) of the new cashier played by Jessica Simpson. The two guys competed for the store’s most coveted honor: “Employee of the Month.” Assumedly, the one who won that title won the girl.


While the two characters in the move competed for love, the truth of the matter is we all like to be recognized for a job well done, and we all have a natural need to compete, and “one-up” our colleagues. We like titles. There’s a certain pride and honor that comes with titles like “Head Cashier” or “CEO.”


Workers in many industries often compete for the title “Employee of the Month,” which usually brings with it certain privileges, like a special parking space, a gift card to a local store or restaurant, and/or bragging rights complete with their photo on the wall for all to see.


Have you ever noticed an elegant plaque on the wall of a store, restaurant, hotel or other place of business? On the plaque you’d see a photo of the “Employee of the Month” along with their name engraved on a plate near or below the picture.


Awards & More is a supplier of wall plaques to honor employees of the month. You can choose from an elegant walnut finish perpetual plaque with black brass header and 13 matching individual plates, a hand rubbed solid American walnut perpetual plaque with black/gold header and 12 matching plates in a horizontal format, or a high gloss ebony perpetual corporate plaque with black/gold header plate, 12 matching individual plates and a photo area, among others.

Why are these plaques called perpetual plaques? They are designed to hold a photograph. The photo of the monthly award recipient goes into the photo holder while the name of the winner is engraved on the plate. These plates can be changed as needed, such that the same plaque can be used for several years.


Typically, perpetual plaques hold 5” x 7” photos and have laser engravable solid brass engraving plates.
