The 7 Best Ways to Show Appreciation to Employees

Displaying appreciation for your employees can help boost morale and promotes loyalty from within. Work can get busy, though and showing gratitude can accidentally be overlooked. It’s important to remember to slow down and show appreciation.

Consider the following ways to show appreciation to employees:

1: Special Events

Special events are great opportunities to showcase the accomplishments of your employees. The critical aspect is that you’re taking the time out of your day to acknowledge the work they do.

2: Family Activities

Work usually isn’t remarkable to family members, so providing a family activity can be a fun way for employees to feel cared about. It’s a great way to encourage family time outside of work.

3: Annual Parties

An annual party is a great time to communicate employees’ achievements. Whether this is an online or in-person format, there are various options.

4: Award Monetary Bonuses

Award bonuses for hard work and achievements. This helps employees know they are appreciated for their efforts.

5: Offer Extra Time Off

Let employees rest. This lets them know their work is appreciated and their health is prioritized.

6: Host Quarterly Giveaways

Contests where employees can win something valuable such as a computer, television or custom office equipment that can help keep employees engaged.

7: Send Birthday Gifts

Sending birthday gifts can help make employees feel valued and unique. Gifts can include gift cards, new hard drives, or company swag.
