London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) December 17, 2009 -- The Rocket Badge Company, a leading provider of promotional badges in the UK, reports that button badges can be used as a powerful motivational tool for business sales teams, as well as rewarding and motivating staff.
The Rocket Badge Company, part of the Lyons Presentations Group, has been supplying badges, keyrings and associated products to businesses and charities since 1987. Now, they have used knowledge gained in the presentations industry to suggest a new way to motivate sales teams - affordable badges that display their achievements to others.
In this cynical age, it seems unlikely to work but, say Rocket, it's often the smallest things which get the biggest results. If we receive a reward for endeavours, even if it's only "thank you" note from the boss, we like to display the fact - and a badge does this admirably. As they explain, it's not enough for you to know you're leading the sales commission board - you want others to know too. If you receive exceptional praise for customer service skills, it's nice that customers can see that.
The schemes work in reverse too, with staff motivated into working harder to achieve what their colleagues have already achieved. The result is improved productivity and a happier workforce - for very little outlay.
Rocket regularly provides quotes for incentive schemes - their reputation grew from this area, and they can supply an unparalleled range of products and services. They can even supply enamel badges and badges made of precious metals - the ultimate accolade for anyone.
"People use the phrase 'wear your badge with pride,' and it's true," said a Rocket Badge spokesman. "Think of how we used to crave those elusive prefects badges at school! Rocket Badges give employees a goal to work towards; a chance to quietly blow their own trumpet in public. Motivation equals productivity."
