Honorary awards are generally symbolic and usually do not use monetary recognition at all. They are a gesture of respect given to employees to recognize their performance and value to the organization. Many agencies include this traditional form of high-level, formal recognition as part of their overall incentive awards programs. Informal recognition awards, on the other hand, are a type of award that may be given to reward performance that otherwise might not merit an award such as cash, time-off, or an honorary award. Agencies use these awards to provide more frequent and timely informal recognition to employees.
