Most major companies and organizations have a history of rewarding its employees, member and or volunteers for the time they spend serving or working for the company. Historically, lapel pins have been used as years of service tokens. Lately more and more companies are switching to challenge coins as awards for years of service.
Challenge coins, because of the weight and size, have a higher perceived value than lapel pins. In return, the people receiving the challenge coins tend to cherish the award even more. You’ll see custom challenge coins on display in homes and offices around the world.
A great example of using challenge coins as years of service awards come from the coins we design and produced for Rio Tinto Minerals, a mining operation in California. All the coins feature the same front side which is company’s logo.
The reverse side of the coin has a unique mold (or die) for each year of service the coins are intended for. Including a date on the challenge coins helps make them memorable. Recipients that earn the coins know exactly what year they were given out. This makes them the ultimate keepsake.
Employee recognition programs are beneficial to both the employer and the employee. Not only are workers more productive, better leaders, absent less and more conscientious about safety, they are more likely to stay with the same business for years. This benefits the employer because production is steady, turnover is low, and morale is high.
