Building positive relationships with employees is a critical management skill, and the tips provided by Michael C. Fina can help hone these skills on Employee Appreciation Day and beyond. They include:
1. Spread the Word: Clearly communicate the details of the Employee Appreciation Day celebration well ahead, so employees can prepare for and attend the festivities.
2. Recognize a Recent Accomplishment: Tie the celebration to the company’s recent accomplishments, and use the opportunity to motivate and inspire.
3. Leave Handwritten Notes: Put a personal touch on the celebration–employees will appreciate the thought and effort.
4. Give a Token Gift: Offer Starbucks gift cards, party favors, themed prizes through a recognition system–give workers something fun and thoughtful to commemorate the day.
5. Include Virtual Workers: Send remote workers an email, give them a thank-you card, or order them lunch for the day, just don’t leave them out.
