During his brief career, Hart will produce more than 200 medals or badges.
His prolific artistic production was widely welcomed and especially
the workshop he initiated continued to issue many decorations,
charms and medals in the following century, thus siding
definitively Hart's name in the landscape of the Belgian medal.
In this respect, the case of Hart's works remains particularly emblematic.

In order to honor the dedication of employees to their company or organization, work medals were created to celebrate anyone who "put their knowledge, talent, dedication, skill and ideals to work." There are different categories and different degrees of medals depending on the seniority and the degree of dedication of the employees. The medals are meant to honor those who receive them, but they are also a sign that the company wants to make mutual respect central to its corporate culture.

The purpose of the Labor Medals is to honor and reward employees for their knowledge, talent, dedication and skill in the performance of their work. There are two types: 1st and 2nd class.

Please read more information about this decoration :

The insignia of the Labour Decoration is oval and made of silver, surrounded by a blue enamelled laurel wreath, with in its center a black enamelled oval medallion surrounded by a red enamelled border and in the center an emblem made of a beehive, a hammer and a compass and topped by the coat of arms of Belgium. The insignia is suspended by a ring through a lateral suspension loop through the orb of a pivot mounted royal crown. The reverse of the insignia is plain. The emblem and the royal crown are silver for the second class decoration and gold for the first class.
The ribbon of the Labour Decoration has three longitudinal stripes of equal width in the national colours of Belgium, black, yellow and red. The ribbon of the decoration first class is adorned with a rosette in the same colours.
