Behind every strong leader is an equally strong team of gifted individuals who deserve to be recognized. And if your official title is “manger,” be sure to recognize your employees this Friday for all their outstanding work.
So in honor of National Employee Appreciation Day, here are a few unique ways that you can show your gratitude.
1. Team Outing
Plan a day full of fun activities away from the office. Go see a movie, take your team wine tasting or hit the links for a round of golf. Whatever you decide to do, your employees will appreciate being able to spend a day outside a cubicle.
2. Say Thanks
Why not show your appreciation by simply saying thanks? But instead of just communicating your gratitude verbally, put it down on paper by way of a creative thank you card. And with a Treat thank you card, you can customize any design with a personalized message and a fun photo of the whole team. Want to really make their day? Then be sure to include a gift card in your thank you note as well.
3. Serve Lunch
Nothing shows gratitude more than serving those who work hard for you every day. That’s why we love the idea of the boss showing appreciation by cooking for his or her employees. Set up a barbecue station or take a portable stove to the office and put your master chef skills to the test.
4. Half Day
Surprise your employees with an email inviting everyone to take the rest of the day off with pay. Sure this is kind of a last minute Employee Appreciation Day idea, but we doubt anyone will be complaining.
5. A Personalized Gift
Your team most likely relies on coffee and tea to stay energized throughout the day. That’s why a personalized mug is a thoughtful and practical gift idea for Employee Appreciation Day. Custom mugs at Treat are easy to make and your team will love drinking their caffeinated beverage in a mug that you created just for them.
