May 2024 Holidays for the Workplace

There are lots of appreciation days in May to celebrate, so take the time to say "Thank You" to those in your life that fill these vital rolls. As the school year winds down, it's a great time to celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week, which takes place in the first full week of the month, starting with Monday this year. National Nurses Week starts that Saturday this year and runs from May 6-12 every year.

Companies can get some serious spring-cleaning going by encouraging workers to tidy up their work spaces on Wednesday May 10, which is Clean Up Your Room Day. Enticing them to do so with some gifts or treats can be a fun effort for all involved.
