The holidays are for gratitude. From Thanksgiving to the New Year, we all look forward to joining our families and friends for delicious meals, gift-giving, and plenty of laughter. “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” is sung for a good reason! That’s why you, as an employer, need to contribute to the holiday cheer this holiday season. Your employees have been working hard all year, and showing them your gratitude will help them feel valued and committed to your vision.
Consider these four ways to show your gratitude to your employees this Holiday season!
While a company email expressing gratitude is excellent, nothing will ever compete with a genuine note to a single employee. Having the opportunity to be specific with an employee about their contributions to the workplace gives the message more weight and will be more impactful. You can never thank your employees enough! If you want to take it a step further, handwriting the letter of appreciation is an even better way to say thanks.
Holiday Shopping Bonus
While any form of compensation is appreciated, bonuses for buying Christmas gifts or meals for your family can show your employees that you care for them beyond their work. You care about their families too! Bonuses help boost morale and increase workplace productivity while making a real difference in people’s lives.
People spend most of their weeks at work, so there is good reason to celebrate the holidays with coworkers as well!. Bringing people together to be friends outside of work will unite you, workers. Additionally, playing board games or competing in holiday-themed Minute to Win It games can be great for team building.
After a long year of hard work, taking a break to enjoy loved ones is crucial. Giving employees a chance to be fully unplugged without negatively impacting their workload is guaranteed to spread holiday cheer. An extra layer of surprise can come from picking a random day to let employees clock out early!
