Friday March 7th (a.k.a. today) is National Employee Appreciation Day. Are you ready to show your employees how much you care? If not, check out these 3 easy ways to show employee appreciation by lunch time.
- In-Office Services: It’s Friday, everyone could use a little pampering. Call up the nail salon down the street and see if they can send over a couple of people to give manicures and neck massages before lunch. Usually salons aren’t as busy during the morning and the opportunity for a quick mani or a stress-relieving neck massage are a great way to say “thank you” to your hardworking staff.
- Happy Hour: Instead of the usual outing or a casual 6 pack on the empty desk, bring around the drink cart at 4:30. No one will over serve themselves at the office, but it does make for a good Don Draper joke and some inter-departmental socializing.
- Gift Cards: Small rewards with a ribbon or a balloon attached can go a long way. Small spot rewards to family oriented retailers like The Cheesecake Factory, Boston Market or Whole Foods Market are a great way to help employees enjoy their weekend by treating their families to a special dinner.
