Does employee appreciation actually matter? The short answer: YES! Sure, there’s National Employee Appreciation Day, but one day simply isn’t enough. If you want your company to really thrive, consistent recognition of your employees’ contributions is important! Here’s why:
- It boosts motivation - employees want to be recognized for their hard work and know that they are a valued part of the team!
- It fosters loyalty and builds trust - nearly 90% of employees who have received a token of appreciation from their boss had higher levels of trust in that boss! Plus, they’re more likely to stick around, saving you both time and money.
- It increases productivity - appreciated employees are happy employees! On average, happy employees are 12% more productive than their less-happy counterparts.
Here’s some awesome ideas on how to show your employees how much you appreciate them:
Our Cheers Party Box (what says “thank you for your hard work” like a celebratory box?)
A random day off for a job well-done (because let’s be honest, everyone needs a break sometimes!)
Our Pamper Box (We all know the saying “work hard, play hard,” but sometimes it needs to be “work hard, relax hard” with a soothing self care day!)
