a rich history of honoring work anniversaries

Businesses have been honoring employees with work anniversary awards for nearly a century, and C.A. Short Company has been by their side through it all. A lot has changed over this time – from what people call the awards to when companies begin offering them to how they’re designed and delivered.  

Yet, there has been one constant: work anniversary awards continue to deliver a significant impact on a company’s bottom line.

Benefits of honoring employees with milestone awards

Employees aren’t the only ones to benefit from a quality service awards program. Recognizing employees for their loyalty and contributions also leads to:

  • Reduced employee turnover rates and improved retention

  • Better talent acquisition and development

  • A more-defined “Culture of Engagement”

  • Improved employee engagement levels

  • Boosted productivity levels

  • Significant quality improvements

C.A. Short Company’s Service Awards

C.A. Short Company’s service awards are completely customized to meet the unique needs of our clients, and our dedicated recognition experts ensure the entire process is a smooth one. With our best-in-class support and an unrivaled award selection, our work anniversary awards can deliver tremendous results as a standalone recognition solution.

However, it is most effective as part of a “Total Recognition” strategy. This is why our service awards program is designed to integrate seamlessly with our all-in-one employee engagement and recognition software platform, People Are Everything™.

Using our recognition platform isn’t a requirement for our service awards. Heck, we don’t even require that you use a computer. We know some clients prefer a more traditional experience, which is why we also offer stamp incentive programs and gift catalogs you can actually hold in your hands.
