Your Employee Appreciation Day Celebration: 4 Tips To Make A Sincere Impact

Your Employee Appreciation Day Celebration: 4 Tips To Make A Sincere Impact


Sometimes it can seem like employees don’t ever pay attention to employer’s good deeds. But today, March 3, 2017, it is employee appreciation day! Celebrate with those you work with and those who work hard for you. The following article tells four great ways to keep employees feeling no resentment and that their performance is appreciated. 


“We can’t help it. As humans, we’re drawn to great achievements. And we want to be part of the celebration of those great achievements—whether it’s watching 80s thrash metal band Megadeth finally win their first Grammy Award this year, to NASA discovering seven new earth-sized worlds, to Tom Brady making the biggest Super Bowl comeback in history. We all watch these achievements with amazement.”


“It’s not just the recent great achievements that capture our intrigue and interest either. Walk through your local park and you’ll likely find a dedication to a former member of the community who made an impact. Look closely at education, military, culinary arts, writing and architecture. They all have awards, trophies and medals celebrating the best and most noble achievements. We even build statues, monuments, and name buildings and bridges after people who have accomplished great things. We love to appreciate and celebrate great work.”

“So why aren’t we celebrating great accomplishments more often in the one place where average people are achieving great things every single day—at the office? Why aren’t more companies and bosses making appreciation and recognition more of a priority? Why aren’t we as leaders going out of our way to celebrate the effort our people give to their work? Why aren’t we bending over backwards to ensure the results employees create are rewarded and applauded? And, why aren’t we showing more gratitude towards the commitment employees are making to the organization, the team, and the cause? Most leaders respond to those questions with a simple answer: “I didn’t think about it.””

“Those are some powerful numbers that show the impact and importance of recognition. But, we have an even more sobering statistic. If you still think recognition is a soft skill, or just a nice practice, that doesn’t impact your bottom line, consider the following finding. When employees participate in all three aspects of recognition moments—meaning they give recognition, receive recognition, and observe recognition—companies witness a 591% increase of employees who say they are engaged.”

“If those numbers have you thinking about how you should spend more time focusing on how to show your appreciation right now, the perfect opportunity to start happens this week as National Employee Appreciation Day is Friday March 3. This means you, as a leader, still have time to show your people how much you a value them and their work—and show how much you respect the one day each year designed to celebrate them. Here are four tips that can help you turn your employee appreciation celebration into an impactful event.”


1. Communicate: “We’ve heard about many companies that will do things to show appreciation for their employees like having lunch catered, but never actually address the reason for the celebration. Take the opportunity to deliver a meaningful message to your team. Talk about the great accomplishment you’ve achieved as a group. Tell them how they play a critical role.”

2. Go Big: “A bigger budget isn’t the only way to host a celebration that will leave an impact. Make a fuss about how important the day is to show that you don’t take it for granted. We’ve seen employers hire on-site massage therapists, car washers and even “errand-runners” for their team. Other employers provided gift certificates to dinner and child-care services so employees can have a night of celebration outside of work. The goal is to do something surprising.”

3. Make It Personal: “Although all employees are being celebrated, make a point throughout your day to show your appreciation to each individual on your team. Tell them the specific impact they’ve made at work. Share with them the reasons why you appreciate them and their talents.”


4. Start Something New: “Possibly the reason National Employee Appreciation Day gets overlooked or forgotten is because it’s just one day out of the year. Use this day as an opportunity to start fresh by making a promise to your team that you will be better every day at recognizing their efforts, rewarding their results, and celebrating their career milestones.”

National Taco Day


            

Celebrate National Taco Day!

  • “Last year Americans ate over 4.5 billion tacos!”
  • “That’s 490,000 miles of tacos, which could take you to the moon and back or, if you prefer, could, at 775-million pounds, equal the weight of two Empire State Buildings.”
