Ways to Show Employee Appreciation
Whether you run a large-scale retail store or a shop on the smaller side, it’s important that as the owner you show your employees appreciation for all of the hard work they’ve put in, not only this holiday season, but throughout the entire year! If you’re finding yourself stumped as to what you can do, we put together a few of our favorite ideas in this post.
Give them a read through and let us know ways you’ve shown the love to your team in the comments.
1. A Holiday Bonus
If you have the means, we always suggest supplementing their income during the holiday season. Not only is this a tangible way you can thank them for the ways they’ve help grow your business, you’ll be able to make a direct impact on their lives. Perhaps they’ll be able to make a larger mortgage payment this month, scoop-up some extra gifts for their littles, or book a much deserved spa day in their hometown!
2. A Celebration for the Ages
If you live somewhere you can safely gather outdoors (we’re looking at you, fellow Arizonians!) why not throw a party outdoors? Include other small businesses in the planning process, from catering to goodie bags + don’t forget the good music! One of our small tips? Work in a special surprise. Some of our recent favorites include on-site aura readings, a cotton candy cart or, if you’re having a morning soiree, a coffee bar with a barista + all!
