Employee Appreciation Day was Friday, I’m proud to report that, at Baudville, we did it right! The day was a huge success!
Our Baudville Winter Olympics provided a great day of team building, improving employee morale and had employees feeling appreciated all over the place. We had fun. We laughed. We celebrated. And most importantly, we ate.
Why does Employee Appreciation Day work for us? Because we don’t do it just one day a year, but we make employee appreciation a fun part of our culture. Planned employee celebrations and events (like our Winter Olympics) can be vital to an organization’s culture. Hosting these events sends a message to employees that you value them personally as much as you value their business results.
If you celebrated Employee Appreciation Day, great! Hopefully our content and resources helped. Now that you’ve had one great day of appreciation, try to make it two. Equip yourself with a manager tool that provides multiple recognition items you can hand out on a regular basis. You can save 15% on all our manager tools by becoming a fan on Facebook.
And the next time one of your employees does something outstanding, recognize it. You won’t even have to give out a gold medal (like we did). A handwritten note will do just fine.
