Dear All, We want to encourage/appreciate employees children who have obtained good % during HSC exam. Pl. provide ideas/suggestions for the same. Nitu

Dear nitu
Please ask your employees to produce the Marksheet of their children as evidence for the appreciation. Findout first three. Call every employee and announce the highest mark scorer name list and give the prises. Put the name list on the notice board along with the student photos. Give news in the news paper stating that the Company has honoured the employees children who scored higher marks in the annual exam...

Dear Nitu,
It is a common practice followed by organisations to appreciate the employees children by issue of Certificates. However I would like to suggest that in order to enhance their further growth, you can enroll them for training in Computers,Communication Skills,Foreign languages.

Dear Nitu,
Without knowing the nature of your organisation and the type of employees, I hesitate to give you concrete advice. However, I am willing to raise a controversial point that may enhance the debate on the issue.
If you need to do it then you have to ensure that somehow you take into account the grades of staff and their ability to spend money on their children's education. For example, a senior manager's child may be put in a private school and given extra tuition and thus is at a great advantage to that of a low paid clerical staff's child that is sent to a local public school and has had no private tution.

Dear Simhan, Reverse case has happend wherein clerks son got far more % than a sr. executive’s. Nitu
19th May 2012 From India, Surat
I was not saying that a clerk's son does not get a higher grade than that of an officer's. I know of cases too, where a director's children fell into wrong company and failed. I was on about the type of school children go to and extra help they get. It's quite possible that a clerk also sent his/her child to a private school. There are very bright children born to parents in a lower level job. I know of people who were not qulified but were educated giving birth to very bright students.

In my opinion you must set a right context, honest motive in place first for honoring good scores of children. Than for a year or two you will remain truly committed to this cause.
Else what so ever buttering you do, it will be a wasteful affair. However true commitment shall help make a good bonding with employees and their families which is mutually beneficial.

Dear Nitu,
First you collect mark sheets from employees children and divide into three cadre
Mark wise, then fix some benefits for each group like(next year tuition fee,books , offer any useful certificate courses etc.. .). Announce in front of all your employees to honer and motivate them.

A notice calling upon all categories of employees to submit their children's certificates and then categorising the received applications on the basis of the type of schooling, viz., State Board, Matriculation, CBSE, etc., and the top scorers are to be awarded the prizes with certificates. However in order not to de-motivate other students who secure below the selected toppers in each category of schooling, it is necessary that the others who ever have applied are also to be given certificate and a minimum consolation prizes.
The prizes can be provided entirely out of a Management's fund or to involve the employees also a nominal contribution can be collected from them also.

It would be advisable to give as gift, very good autobiographies, motivating books. It is also one way of developing reading habbits in children. Or else, gift cheque with which the children can buy books of their choice.

I agree with MK sharmaís POV.

What is the underlying purpose of appreciating kids of employees, let that be a personal matter to be celebrated in their homes. Also initiating this kind of acitivities is a wasteful exercise, as it may backfire against the real intention of employee bonding.

Parents are very protective about their kids, any sort of comparison, grading would lead to breeding jeolousy amongst employees. A subordinate kid doing better then bossís kid or some employees would brag and boast their kidís achievement. Etc etc. Creating a sense of discriminatory environment, employees ending up blaming HR department in case of sour grapes.

If at all company wants to do some social good and score brownie points, then sponsor economically weak students, atleast academic expenses. If the company has a sound budget then just throw a party to all HSC kids and arrange a presentation / lecture to advise them on future career prospects.

Donít create this grading classes of 1..2..3 and divide our kids in categories, whether a person scored 90 % or 50 % .. he has gone ahead in life, we shall motivate one and all.

Dear Nitu,
It will be better to fix a minimum %age of obtained marks as eleigibility critera. You may easily scrutinize the limited mark sheets/certiiiiiificates. Display the name(s) of achiever(s) with Father's/ Mother's name/ Employee Code on Notice Board and in the Periodical/News Letter, if published, of the organization with photo and the marks obtained by the childern. You may also honour them with gifts, scholarships, monetory incentives or in any other way as decided by you or a committee setup for the purpose, in any event organized as Annual Day of the organization. Please also try to make a company policy in this regard.

Hi Nitu,
The seniors have provided very valuable suggestions.
In addition to above, you can provide them career counselling and guidance sessions as making the right career choice is very important of the psychological maintenance of any person.
In case yours is a well to do company, you can also offer these children scholarships (time period up to you and your company) to lighten the burden of fees on their parents' shoulders. This will also motivate your employees to remain loyal to the company and work more productively.

We did this with good results, but we gave prizes to all children of employees, did not limit to first three. This was a conscious decision and we did not want to compare the children. Let no child feel demotivated nor the parent feel let down by the children. They were given gifts during the new year celebrations. Regards KK

children are the future of society...
you must have come across numerous stories wherein kids from extremely poor backgrounds achieved laurels...
Look to history (Abraham Lincoln/ Lal Bahadur shastri/ Abul Kalam, the list is endless )
a good way to reward would be to offset the costs of education for your low paid employees..
you could arrange books or sports equipment or even tuitions to help them realise their full potential.
I have noticed this both in saudi arabia and bhutan....
