"Participation Award" may be what you're looking for
Nominally describing awards given out to all (archtypically very young) competitors in some event, typically so as to not make potentially sensitive children feel terrible for losing in high-profile events, regardless of their actual performance (hence the only requirement is 'participation').
The term has since grown to describe accolades which are given for activities or accomplishments that do not merit such, or for accolades which are not deserved, but received due to certain combinations of politics or timing
E.g. - In a business environment a team is credited with having made some noteworthy accomplishment. Because of this all members of that team are to be given a certificate of thanks.
However, a new hire joined the team a day or two prior to the accomplishment's conclusion. Being a new hire they did not contribute in any noteworthy way to this accomplishment.
Nonetheless, the team as a whole is awarded certificates.
While this certificate may or may not be a legitimate accolade for most members of the team, for the new hire it could absolutely be regarded as a 'participation award', granted to him solely for happening to have his name on the team registry at the right time.
