Low-Cost Holiday Party Alternative

Times are tough, and so are corporate budgets. But rather than canceling the company holiday party this year, which can have a detrimental effect on employee morale and motivation, try a fun low-cost and creative alternative. Remember: Recognition is free, and can be more valuable and motivating than money. For example, handing out funny awards to employees is a low-cost way to celebrate co-worker success and bring laughter into the workplace.

Here is a list of the Top 10 Funny Employee Awards Ideas:

1. The Heinz Ketchup Award for always making others wait
2. The Jeff Gordon Award for racing away from work the fastest
3. The Deer in the Headlights Award for most confused
4. The Loch Ness Award for least likely to be found
5. The American Express Award for always taking credit
6. The Bermuda Triangle Award for the desk where things go in but never come out
7. The Human Vulture Award for eating anything found lying around
8. The Baryshnikov Award for most skill in dancing around the issues
9. The Global Warming Award for polluting the atmosphere with hot air
10. The Casual Monday–Friday Award for continually pushing the limits of “business attire”
