World globes are a perfect addition to an office or home. There is something amazing about seeing the whole planet on the top of your table. World globes are spherical objects that reflect the awesome vastness of the Earth. World globes are available in a range of sizes, from small to medium and large. There is no other item on the desk that attracts so much attention as a globe does.
As a gift idea, illuminated world globes like a Constellation Globe are a great choice. They are breathtakingly beautiful and educational, showing celestial images with their illuminating effects. The wonderful ambience displayed by the softly lit world globe is unmatched by any other gift items out there. An illuminated world globe can serve as a night light in the bedroom as well.
Looking for that perfect item to draw attention to your living room, study, or office? How about floor globes? There are many models to choose from that are sure to smarten any décor. Some are more elegant in a gold or silver stand, some have more of an antique style, while the other’s have a more contemporary look in a metal stand or wood finish. You can also get one made out of precious gemstones that are hand set and then hand polished.
Floor globes are excellent pieces of fine art that will add beauty to any room or office. What makes them so appealing to the eye is how they are made and crafted from different kinds of materials. And finishing its look is the base of the piece, that may be made from gold, or silver. You can also find ones that have spheres made from wood adorned with details in various color palettes, like antiqued, that are nicely complemented by a rich wood-finished base.
Wedding gifts can be wonderful creative presents that show the bride and groom how much you were thinking about them and what they would like. An excellent wedding gift that stands the test of time – Whether it’s a bottle of scotch or fine wine with instructions to open on their tenth anniversary, a gorgeous vase, piece of art, or a beautiful gemstone world globe, give a gift on which the couple will be able to look fondly and say “We will treasure this gift forever.”
Looking for convenient, appreciated, reasonably cost-conscious ways to provide rewards and recognition, demonstrate your appreciation and say ‘thank you’ for contributions that people make at work? Sure you can select flowers, a book or a CD that your staff may enjoy. What about a gift that gives continually. You might consider a desk top world globe or globe/pen set that celebrate such positive contributions as excellence, teamwork, and “doing whatever it takes to get the job done well.” A selection of world globes with clocks may also fit the bill; affordable and easy to engrave as well, these are great for rewards, recognition, awards, and showing appreciation.
Isn’t it great to be recognized by someone? Especially when it comes to job performance and quality work. Over the years I have seen companies require standards for work performance and establish goals and when an individual achieves those criteria established by management, there has not been any recognition. But new higher goals were set and the employee reaches out for them wanting to do better. Some may say he is just doing his job working at self emprovement. But when those accomplishments are not recognized with a reward whether a thank you note from the supervisor or a gift from higher management then it is deterimental to the company. Employee recognition reinforces and rewards the most important outcomes people create for your business, it is just one of the ways the company can communicate to their employees. When a company recognizes people effectively, you reinforce the actions and behaviors you most want to see
people repeat. What criteria should be established to be effective at employee recognition?
1. You should have all employees eligible for the recognition.
2. There must be specific information as to what behaviors and/or actions are being rewarded.
3. Anyone who performs at the level or standard required then receives the reward.
4. The employee recognition should occur as soon as possible after the performance of the employee has been recognized. Of what benefit to both the company and the individual if it is 6 months later that “oh by the way you did a great job for us.”
Rewards and recognition that help both the employer and the employee get what they need from work are a win-win situation.
