DirecTV in Sacramento CA, instituted Awards & Recognition lapel pins program for their Technicians in December called “Technician Elite”. The lapel pin is a Cloisonné Hard enamel pin with silver metal plating and blue & white enamel colors. The custom made lapel pins are not only used as Recognition for their hard working technicians, but are also used as ID badges to identify themselves to their customers. The pins are attached to their lanyards or ID badges. These pins give their customers the confidence that not only is the technician “certified” elite, but it also ads an extra layer of security that they are in fact a representative of DirecTV. A custom lapel pin is a great way to reward employees for their loyalty and hard work. It motivates other employees to reach both company and personal goals.
