Employee Appreciation Day falls on the first Friday of March every year. This means that tomorrow is the big day! There is no pressure to show appreciation to your employees on this exact day. You can show them you’re thankful whenever you feel the time is right. We have a few ideas that would be excellent choices as a way of saying thanks for your hard work.
Celebrate with food. Treat your employees to a team lunch or have lunch brought in. Not having to worry about bringing a lunch is always a relief for anyone. You can also switch things up by bringing in breakfast instead.
Thank you cards. A simple thank you via a hand written note is sentimental and a great way to let your employees know exactly why you appreciate them. You can go the extra step and throw in a gift card or make the card extra special by adding a scent you know they would enjoy. Check out this video to learn how.
Give a gift card. Giving a gift card allows your employees to choose their own gifts. Plantlife offers gift cards ranging from $25-$100. This especially comes in handy when you aren’t sure what your employee may or may not like.
Give a gift they would enjoy. If you do happen to know what your employees like then perhaps give something you know they would enjoy. For example, our Spa Therapy Kits offer an aromatherapy soap, massage oil, bath salt and exfoliating hand scrubber. It is as if you gave 4 gifts in one! Also, you can add a few sample size products of items you think they would enjoy. Plantlife samples are an affordable way to try before you buy!
Group activity. Take a company break and go for a walk together. You will promote healthy living and get everyone’s blood circulation flowing. It is a great way to switch up the day and it gives your employees a nice break from their tasks.
