Corporate Awards Worthy of Your Business

Corporate awards programs are one of our specialties. By implementing our own recognition strategies and incentives we’ve seen great success. Our program is built around an annual gala where employees enjoy a sit-down dinner and presentation. Custom-made prizes and awards are handed out for achievements like; smashing sales goals, years of service, and department acknowledgments. Employees enjoy the chance to sit with one another and celebrate their hard work. The awards themselves are carefully crafted to be brand-specific and attractive for display around the office. You won’t see cheap, plastic participation trophies at a SymbolArts Gala and we encourage our customers to follow suit. Think outside the box and create something unique that rings true to your company culture. Employee recognition gifts are a great way to motivate employees and boost moral.

Our Favorite Corporate Awards Examples. Take inspiration from the best!

C.R. England Trucking


C.R. England came to SymbolArts for a corporate awards program that was all inclusive to their employees. A lot of time and energy is invested in the drivers but they needed a way to recognize the people who keep those wheels turning. The resulting design featured magnetic inserts, coins, medallions and custom displays to bring it all together. Truckers may not seem like a sentimental bunch but the commitment C.R. England has for its employees is apparent in the care with which this awards program was created.

The details: The trophy was created out a of a custom shaped acrylic mold designed to fit each magnetic coin piece. subsequent awards were created to match the original trophy including an engravable acrylic plaque holding a medallion and a special framed display with magnetic coins. Each metal piece was finished in a gold plating with varying imt. hard enamel in vibrant colors for each step in the process.

GTEM Coins


Recognition programs don’t always have to be huge trophies and big goal markers. Sometimes a small token to keep at your desk makes the biggest impact. At SymbolArts the GTEM (pronounced get ’em) coin program is a favorite. Employees are encourage to nominate fellow coworkers for “going the extra mile.” Anything from staying late to help on a big project or giving a ride to an office mate having car trouble. At SymbolArts we specify that recipients should be good examples of living our Core Values. Once reviewed, the nominee receives a coin to display on their desk and every quarter can turn their accumulated coins in for a $25 prize. This coin program is a great way to recognize excellence in the moment it happens as well as keep track of those small but impactful experiences throughout the year.

The details: These coins are highly customizable. Add your logo, core values, mission statement, or anything unique to your business and it’s goals. Ask one of our sales team members about customizing finishes, color and more.
