Employee Appreciation Day
One of the greatest assets that any company has is its employees. It is often said that one of the highest cost to companies is a high turnover rate in their employees. That is because, with each employee that leaves, you also lose the years of experience and instead gain a new person that needs to be trained to do the work up to your standards. So one of the wisest choices that an employer can make is to keep your employees! And where many business owners may not be able to offer significant pay increases, there are many different ways to help a business owner build their Employee Retention.
Thank you Notes are Alive and Well
Do not be fooled into thinking that the personal touch of a thank you note will not go a long way. People appreciate when a boss takes time to tell them why they are recognized. And even more so in our digital age, a physical card can speak great value.
People love the idea that they are winning something! You can have a trophy that goes to certain teams when they have a big win for that week. The prize can move week to week as positive recognition is given. You could also allow other employees to nominate an employee that they feel has gone above and beyond the call of duty. That way, those employees feel validated from their employer as well as their coworkers.
Often one of the best ways to incentivize or reward your employees is just to ask them what they would like. Be prepared from some inventive answers and ways to work with them so that they feel valued.
