A New Vision
Reimagining the Service Anniversary Experience
We all think we know what Service Anniversaries are. Our pre-conceived expectations have
put milestones into a box. One with a gold embossed, engraved cover, which rarely gets opened. Have you ever thought about what milestone awards could be if we lifted that limited definition and really imagined the possibilities?
Service milestones have become about thanking someone for not quitting. But think about it. They could be an opportunity to celebrate, inspire, increase satisfaction and happiness, and strengthen ties among workers in your company.
There is a revolution happening in service anniversaries. Are you prepared for it?
Imagine a whole new approach to milestones…
My anniversary was a moment for me to stop and reevaluate my job and career and the relationships I’ve built here. If I were offered my job again today, I’d accept it. My milestone experience made me recommit to my company.
Milestones can renew your contract with your employees.
I’D ACCEPT THE JOB
ALL OVER AGAIN.
I LOVE YOU GUYS.
When my coworkers came together to share
my milestone-experience, I realized that my life
would be a lot less rich without them. I spend
half of my life here. It’s a great feeling to know
that you really belong.
Milestones can be about celebrating
your work community.
REAL PRIDE OF WORK.
My work anniversary included a retrospective of
my achievements. I was so amazed and proud
to see all of my recognition accomplishments in
one place. I’ve revisited it a few times now and
even shared it with my family.
Milestones can build an employee’s
confidence and pride.
I used my anniversary reward to buy a new
bicycle I’ve had my eye on. Every time I hit the
open road I think about what a great company
I work for. This was the perfect gift for me,
because I chose it.
Milestones can show how much you
value a worker as an individual.
MY OWN NIRVANA.
My service award experience helped me to see
exactly how important I am to this community
and the work we do. It was my own ‘It’s a
Wonderful Life’ moment. I suddenly had all this
insight into the real contribution I have made
over the years. It was powerful.
Milestones can create a sense of
achievement and meaning.
I’VE MADE A DIFFERENCE.
I didn’t realize how much I’ve put down roots
here. When my co-workers started sharing those
stories, the memories came flooding back and
I got tears in my eyes even as I was laughing.
I could never leave this place.
Milestones can reinforce an
employee’s emotional commitment.
POWER OF MEMORY.
It was so easy to contribute a story to my co- worker’s Service Timeline. I got a reminder that helped me to not forget and it was really simple to put up a message. While I was composing it, and then reading what others wrote, I got a bit choked up. I was really reminded me what a great place this is to work. I can’t wait for my next milestone.
Milestones can have a huge impact on everyone who reads them.
IT WASN’T EVEN
I’M ON TOP OF
I got my service award while I was on a project
in Tibet. It was amazing that my co-workers
could reach out from all around the world and
suddenly make me feel surrounded by their
love and appreciation. The power of technology
Milestones can use technology
to connect everyone, everywhere.
Service awards have tremendous power to highlight and reinforce the connections that make our companies strong. Our employees are all part of a mosaic of commitment, energy and emotion—supporting, inspiring and driving one another toward success.
The service anniversary should never be a simple pat on the back and thanks for the past. It should be a moment of reflection and a recommitment for the future. It should be an acknowledgement that together we have accomplished much, and together we will go on to accomplish so much more. It should be an invitation to remain with your company and with your community and continue that record of success.
How we think about service awards has changed forever.
