How to observe the National Employee Appreciation Day
The day is mostly celebrated by employers and managers who are advised to be flexible on this day; this is critical for good output from your staff. At the time, letting the employees decide on their own can be better for the company and their morale.
As an employer, you can write a thank you note to the employees to show appreciation for their work. Just remember that a handwritten note or memo speaks volume than a typed or photocopied memo. It merely indicates that you took your precious time to jot down your affection.
From time to time, appreciate team effort. As a manager or supervisor, you can respond to the team by congratulating their work and offering them an office paid piazza. Another way of showing appreciation could be by allowing them to have a casual dress day to work, or close work early allowing them to spend more sun time with their families.
As an employer make an effort to create a culture of encouragement in the company. Employees that expand their skills and horizon bring value to the company. Praise their work and accomplishment and encourage the rest to do the same.
As an employee, it’s courteous to appreciate the input and teamwork of your colleagues.
