The Christmas holidays are over for another year and a new year has begun. Often after the holiday period, it can take a few days (or weeks) to get back into the swing of things at work. Therefore, now is an excellent time to stop and check in to see how your employees are doing. One good way to make sure that everyone is returning to work in chipper spirits and not suffering from post holiday blues is to show your appreciation for your employees.
Employee Appreciation Gift Ideas
Employee appreciation doesn’t have to be a grand gesture. Nor does it have to be an expensive customized gift. Sometimes a small, sincere act goes a long way and means the most.
We’ve come up with a list of ways to help make your employees know that their work is appreciated. You’ll likely find that these simple acts can boost your employees’ mood and help them face the start of the new year with a great attitude.
Here are some easy things you can do to say “Thank you“ to show employee appreciation:
- Send a personalized email, handwritten card or give them a mention in the company newsletter.
- Offer an extra long lunch break or permission to leave early.
- Arrange for the president of the company to stop by, or send a message of appreciation.
- Bring in a treat like donuts in the morning, or dessert at lunch.
- Surprise them with a personalized gift.
This last suggestion is where we can help. At Totally Chocolate, we offer an array of gifts that employers love to give and employees love to receive.
