It’s easy to ensure employees feel valued. From birthdays to engagements to baby showers, there are many important dates throughout the year that should be celebrated with your co-workers. It’s good for both morale and team building, and really doesn’t have to take much time, effort or money.
A simple cake, and five minutes out of the working day, can put a smile on everyone’s face and remind us all that we are individuals and our personal lives are important. A card sent round the office for everyone to sign can cost less than a dollar, but it really is the thought that counts. Depending on how big your company is, you could all pitch in for a gift. Send an envelope around for people to contribute whatever they feel they can, and then purchase something from everybody.
At Christmas, a Secret Santa could be organized, with a spending limit of five, ten or even fifteen dollars. Everyone needs to feel appreciated on these important days, and with minimal time and effort everyone can.
