Employee Appreciation

The month of November is often thought of as the month to Give Thanks. As an employer, are you remembering to thank your employees and recognizing their achievements? Showing your employees appreciation for all they do can help boost productivity and morale, and that is always good for business! Here are just a few ways to Give Thanks to your employees this Thanksgiving season…

Treat your employee(s) to lunch

Hand written thank you notes for a personal touch

Awards: maybe a traveling trophy, a nice clock, any type of award that the employee can display in their office space.

Notice In Employee’s File: If an employer wishes to recognize an employee in this way, he should add the note, but also tell the employee he is doing so, so the employee knows he is appreciated.

Kudos Column: If your workplace has a newsletter, add a column where employees are recognized for outstanding efforts and achievements

Simple spoken words of Thanks can go a long way.

Gift Certificates

Implement an employee of the week program

Vacation – yes even a few hours of extra paid vacation time is a big reward for most employees

Ice Cream Sundae Party at the office

Night out at the ballpark for a team of employees

Give the employee a membership or subscription to a journal that relates to their work

Happy-Thanksgiving
