Employee Appreciation Day is coming up on March 5th, and is much needed this year.
Even before Covid-19 turned our world upside down, Forbes Magazine wrote that recognized employees are happy employees. Happy employees are on average 12 percent more productive than their less-happy counterparts. Good vibes in the office translate into a happier and more peaceful home life. And when employees feel recognized, they stick around and don’t look for new jobs.
Many simple gestures can show your employees you appreciate them, and we’re partial to giving quality company swag along with a hand-written thank you note. In particular, items that make their work lives better and gifts they can use at home.
Combine company swag with another surprise – like a bonus half-day off – for an even more thoughtful experience.
Branded gifts help employees feel connected to your company, with an added bonus of potential brand exposure. For example, if an employee is wearing a jacket with the company logo, another person may start a conversation asking about the company.
Contact us for ideas. We can even ship gifts directly to your employees.
If physical gifts aren’t in your budget right now, here are other ways to show appreciation to your employees:
• Send a hand written thank you card noting achievements or traits you appreciate in the employee
• Give sincere compliments
• Publicly recognize achievements
• Give random surprise time off, like a late arrival or early departure
• Add employees to your About Us page
Any gesture makes a difference, especially now.
