Every employee wants to feel appreciated and valued, and the end of the year is a great time to recognize their hard work. Aside from a year-end bonus, there are other meaningful ways to show your gratitude.
Give a Handwritten Thank You
Recognition is key, so the next time your team is together, hand out personalized handwritten notes to each team member to show them you recognize their unique accomplishments and contributions.
Set up an award system to recognize team members’ attributes. Awarding individuals in categories like, “Best Attitude” or “Most Punctual” is a great way to provide recognition for the special qualities each team member brings to the table.
Make it Personal
Give each team member a personalized gift. This shows that not only do you really know your employees, but that they matter and are valued at your company.
Give Back as a Team
Giving back is the reason for the season, and coming together to do so will help bring the team together. Whether it’s volunteering at a soup kitchen or delivering presents to those in need, this simple act will help everyone get into the holiday spirit, as well as be a rewarding gift for all involved.
Book a Culinary Team-Building Event
Team-building events provide a great opportunity for a team to engage in an activity outside of work and come together. Team members collaborate, compete and ultimately bond over a meal they prepared. It’s a great way to reward employees with an experience they won’t soon forget!
