Take Your Awards Program Virtual!

Take Your Awards Program Virtual!

Posted by Kathy Toynbee on Apr 29th 2020

The whole world is going virtual and so are Awards! At Awarding You, our job is to help organizations recognize their top tier staff members and customers. Our goal is to boost motivation and inspiration in the workforce and to ensure that our customers’ key clients are recognized for the value they bring to the longevity of a successful business.

With the advent of COVID-19, the business world has been thrown off track. Businesses are looking for ways to manage this temporary side-tracking without losing sight of values and incentive programs. Many employees are working from home and are attending virtual meetings and planning sessions.

When it comes to business award programs these days, do hard-working sales teams, managers and volunteers still need to be celebrated? Do key customers need to feel they are part of your success now and in the future? We say yes to both!

SHIFTING FROM A PHYSICAL CEREMONY TO VIRTUAL CAN KEEP YOUR AWARD PROGRAM ALIVE

This new approach is building momentum as organizations shift from the physical event world to the digital and social media world for their recognition programs and events. This option means that if circumstances have forced your company to cancel a live awards event, your program does not have to stop.

WHAT OPTIONS ARE AVAILABLE FOR HOSTING A VIRTUAL AWARDS GALA OR CEREMONY?

You do not need a high-technology platform from which to present recognition awards to recipients. It is entirely possible to remotely host an event where participants call in. You can enlist presenters and/or speakers who would be comfortable with the platform and you can still put great planning in place to ensure your event goals are met! 

Video conferencing tools, such as Zoom, and GoToMeeting are popular with smaller business who plan for smaller attendance in a more conference-meeting type atmosphere.

YOU CAN GO BIG WITH LIVE STREAMING 

If you are looking to livestream your event , there are several options available, some that are easier to use and set up than others. Look for one that fits your needs. 

Do you want engagement from your audience? Do you need award gala attendees to access the event from a mobile device? Does your chosen platform need to provide tracking and analytics when the event is over? These are just a few of the questions for your event planner’s back pocket.

LET US HELP BRING THE TOUCHABLE ASPECT TO YOUR VIRTUAL AWARDS EVENT

Award recipients having something tangible to hold and display that represents hard work and inspires a continued drive toward excellence cannot be replaced by any virtual experience. That’s where we can help. Award programs are our specialty, whether being held at the local Hilton, or held via live stream software.
