Staff Appreciation Day 2019: 5 Ways to Celebrate in the Workplace

During their careers, most workers will undoubtedly invest more time at the workplace than they will doing any other task, except maybe sleeping.

This Friday, March 1st, 2019 is the now world-famous Staff Appreciation Day. A great time to show how much you value all the efforts, as well as commitments made by your team and colleagues. If you’re wondering what you can do for your personnel to thank them for all their initiatives! Here are some ideas straight from the Ecard Mint HQ:

Celebrate with food.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Take your group to lunch or have lunch brought in. If lunch is a standard method of celebrating in your office, you can mix it up by holding a breakfast celebration instead. Or, think of an innovative afternoon treat activity, such as a build-it-yourself cocktail bar with music, or other fun activities.

Give a present.

 

 

 

 

 

 

You can give out a Deliveroo or Starbucks gift card to each staff member and also share something you appreciate about each person when you present the gift to them. Does your team like to remain energetic? If ‘yes’, then how about health and fitness trackers? You could also hire an exercise trainer to instruct everyone as to exactly how they should be used, and create an enjoyable physical fitness task in the workplace to kick off making use of their trackers.

Plan a team trip.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Develop a list of fascinating, unique, and fun team building occasions (within your budget) then allow your team to choose which task they would like to do. One group I know wanted a team building cooking occasion at a local restaurant. A different team rented out an ice skating rink for the afternoon, with food provided as well as beverages, a DJ spinning songs, topped off with ice skating lessons from specialist skaters.

Give them a break.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kick off the employee recognition events by giving your staff members some paid pause this Friday. Or if you want to get really creative, produce a fun voucher that lets workers choose whatever day they wish to leave early. By doing this everyone can use it whenever it is of most use to them, for example; to go to a kid’s school occasion or attend the birthday celebrations of a family member.

AND SAY THANK YOU!

After you have shown your appreciation and support to staff members this Friday, don’t fail to continue with your efforts throughout the rest of 2019. When an employee exceeds expectations or forgoes the norm on a job, tell him or her just how much you appreciate their initiatives. When the team achieves a hard won goal or hits their targets, celebrate the accomplishment. Give individual awards for outstanding work – and we are not talking like Dunder Mifflin or Wernham Hogg.

Appreciation

When you are appreciated for something you’ve put a lot of effort in to you gain confidence in your abilities and it is this that plays a vital role in success. If employees know that they are likely to be praised for hard work, they will strive to do better.

Recognition

While team cohesion and support is vital to a workforce, employees need to be recognised as individuals for their unique talents and abilities. By recognising the efforts of an individual who has gone beyond the call of duty, you’re showing them you value their hard work.

By utilising corporate ecards, you can boost morale in the workplace resulting in huge benefits for your business. These days a lot of focus is put on customer satisfaction but it’s equally as important to invest time into your employees; happy employees equal happy customers. Not only that, when your workforce feels appreciated they are more likely to represent your brand in a positive and enthusiastic way.

It’s a no brainer.

Why Office Birthdays Are Important

Workplace birthdays are often seen as a bit of a chore to everyone involved. Baking cakes, doing a whip round, picking out a birthday card and buying presents are just some of the tasks expected to be carried out by those unfortunate enough to be lumbered with ‘birthday duties’.

In an episode of The Office: An American Workplace, entitled ‘Survivor Man,’ Jim has a cunning plan to alleviate the hassle associated with celebrating co-worker birthdays ahead of ‘birthday month’. With loads of colleague birthdays fast approaching, Jim decides that it would be a good idea not to bother with individual parties, cakes and presents and instead organises a joint celebration. After a lot of disagreements and stress for all involved, the episode ends with Jim relenting once he realises that making a big deal about each employee’s birthday is the right thing to do…

But why are employee birthdays so important?

Because celebrating an employee’s birthday is about making your each and every employee feel appreciated and part of the team. And whilst lavish parties, expensive gifts and home-made cakes might not always be necessary, a birthday ecard with a personal message is always sure to be greatly received.
