Employee Appreciation Day

Employee Appreciation Day is always the first Friday of March.

Employee Appreciation Day first arrived on calendars in 1995. Bob Nelson, one of the Recognition Professionals International's founding Board members, and his publishing company Workman Publishing, created Employee Appreciation Day as a way of focusing the attention of all employers, in all industries on employee recognition. It's easy to get bogged down in the day-to-day tasks of working life. That's no excuse, however, for managers, CEOs and employers to forget just how important and valuable their employees are.

Successories promotes Employee Appreciation not just on this day but year round as it is proven to be a cost effect method to keep employees happy, engaged, motivated and productive.

Preparation

The competitive nature of businesses today means increasing competition to attract and obtain employees for an organization. One of the main aspects to keep in mind is the need for proper employee engagement and recognition. Proper preparation is needed to show a business has taken the time to effectively recognize all the employee within the organization.

Recognition Matters

In today's highly competitive business environment, getting the most out of your employees can mean a big difference for your brand. If a business does not take any time to recognize the achievements of employees, that can result in a depressing workplace.

Recognizing employees does not have to be limited to only one advertised day of the year. Recognition can be done when employees have been working hard or demonstrating outstanding performance. However, any forms of recognition or appreciation need to be immediate, positive, and certain.

Getting Started

There are many ways for a business to begin preparations for Employee Appreciation Day. Any business is also able to show appreciation in simple, yet convincingly effective ways. Let's take a look at 8 practical ways you can bring a smile to your employees' faces:

Employee Gift Budget

Depending on your organization and what else you are doing to show your employees appreciation, expect to budget between $10 to $20 per employee. Best gifts are ones that are useful year round (drinkware or tote bags) and say "thank you" every day such as gifts that are decorated with the design "Thanks for all you do!". If you are looking to recognize executives and managers as well, personalized gifts and a budget of $50 - $100 is appropriate. This is a great time to give years of service awards to employees who have been with the company for over 5 years.

Simple Ways to Celebrate Employee Appreciation Day

  1. Bring box of doughnuts or snacks for employees.
  2. Offer to buy an employee a cup of coffee.
  3. Write a handwritten thank your note. Be genuine and not generic with the message.
  4. Say "Thank You" to one or a group of employees all at once.
  5. Create a certificate of appreciation for everyone in the office.
  6. Offer some free time, such as extra time for lunch or leaving for home early.
  7. Bring in pizza or offer to host a potluck and have employees bring in a dish.
  8. Meet with employees for a weekly morning round table. Offer coffee and a roll or even a muffin.

Appreciating employees does not need to be limited to one day each year. Many ideas can be used any time of the year whenever employees need to be rewarded or appreciated. One thing to keep in mind is appreciation and recognition are business strategies along with gestures for employees. A business will need to develop a plan and then communicate it with every employee.
