Every year on the first Friday of March, employers across the country participate in Employee Appreciation Day. Recognizing and celebrating your employees is essential to a happy and productive workplace. This year, take time to recognize and express your appreciation for the hard work of your employees. Here are four creative ideas to get you started.
- Treat your employees to breakfast or lunch. Bring in bagels, pastries and yogurt parfait ingredients for a delicious breakfast in the office or surprise them with a lunch out on you.
- Give back and organize an office volunteer event. Arrange for the office to volunteer for an afternoon at a local non-profit organization. Not only is this a great opportunity for team bonding and give employees a chance to do something outside of the office, it creates a positive impact on your community.
- Deliver handwritten thank you cards to each employee. If the office is too large for that, type up personalized emails for each employee or send a heartfelt email to the entire team.
- Recognize them with a gift, award or certificate from Awards4U. Our staff is always available to help you find the perfect way to recognize your employees.
