Employee Appreciation Day
No, this isn’t another “Hallmark holiday” or one of those made-up days to try and get a day off work. Employee Appreciation Day is a day set aside to make staff feel valued and important in our hectic business world. Scheduled for Friday, Mar. 2, Employee Appreciation Day is a perfect time to take a moment and say thank you to your staff.
Offering recognition to your employees doesn’t have to be a huge effort – in fact, sometimes the simplest methods are the most meaningful. A quick, handwritten note can be just as memorable as a gift. Whatever your means of acknowledgement, following three simple tips can help you leave a lasting impression with your staff:
• Be specific – State exactly what you’re thanking or recognizing them for
• Be sincere – Don’t try to be who you’re not. Use your voice and style in the writing
• Be relevant – Show how their efforts relate back to the company’s goals and values
Using these guidelines will not only make your team feel valued, it can improve overall morale and company success. And that’s something you can appreciate and recognize every day.
