How Nameplates Affect Employee Performance
By: Dandy Designs
Name plates make an office look professional and sophisticated. Having name plates in the work place makes the space look cohesive and organized, but apart from the aesthetic appeal, name plates have a positive effect on employees, which directly impact their performance, and ultimately, your company’s success.
- NAME PLATES FOSTER COMMUNICATION
Communication is essential in keeping a workplace running smoothly, whether it be between employees and upper management, fellow employees, or employees and the public. Having personal identification through name plates opens avenues for communication. Interaction and communication becomes smoother when we know who we are talking to.
- NAME PLATES GIVE EMPLOYEES A SENSE OF BELONGINGNESS
Name plates are a way of making employees feel welcome in a company. Having name plates creates a sense of permanence, since it’s placed in an area that is uniquely theirs. When employees feel that they belong, they will be inspired to work harder. At the same time, seeing the company logo on their name plate makes employees feel that they are indeed part of that group.
- NAME PLATES CREATE PERSONAL SPACE
In a large company that may be filled with rows of busy cubicles, it is not hard to feel like a worker bee in a hive. An easy way to identify personal space is by having a name plate at the cubicle. When work stations are personalized with a name plate or personal trinkets, employees can have a sense of comfort and tranquility in their own space, and not be bothered or distracted by the hustle and bustle around them.
- NAME PLATES RECOGNIZE INDIVIDUAL ACCOMPLISHMENTS
Having titles on name plates are a great way to reward employee accomplishments. This lets employees know that their work is recognized and is worth broadcasting. For instance, a newly promoted employee can have his/her new title on the name plate; the same manner applies to honoring a long-term employee with the title “Senior.” These small details reflect how the company values its employees, and employees who feel recognized and appreciated will always perform better.
- NAME PLATES RECOGNIZE PERSONAL IDENTITY
Working in a big organization makes it difficult to recognize individual employees, especially those who are just starting out with the company. Name plates make it possible for your employees to feel that, although there may be hundreds of employees, the company respects each individual contribution – that recognition is not reserved just for people high up in the corporate ladder. It’s not just feeling that they are a part of the company; it’s feeling that the company knows they’re a part of it.
