The Employee of the Month, generally selected by management, is the recognition of an individual by the organization for their outstanding contribution as an employee. The recognition is usually accompanied by a gift, gift certificate and/or a certificate or thank you note. Often the name of the awarded employee is engraved on a plaque in the company lobby.
Employee of the Month is an organizational recognition that companies have used - both successfully - and unsuccessfully - for years. In some organizations, it is a joke, a popularity or take-turns contest for management-fawning employees. In others, Employee of the Month is a cherished form of recognition.
