7 Ways to Celebrate Your Employees This Holiday Season

December 27, 2012

In honor of the holiday season and the beginning of a new year, Pacific Office Automation wanted to share seven simple, yet heartfelt ways to celebrate your employees and show your appreciation for all their hard work in 2012.

  1. Offer additional time off or a flex day. The holidays are the busiest time of the year; give employees an extra hour at lunch, a day to work remotely, or even an extra afternoon or day off. The time may not seem like a lot at first, but an extra hour with family, time to run errands, or the ability to work distantly will be greatly appreciated by employees.
  2. Throw an office party or potluck. Hosting a meal or having an office party is a great way to celebrate everyone’s hard work and having a potluck is a fun way for employees to share their favorite dish or holiday treat. This gives everyone a time to relax and enjoy their co-worker’s company, while also getting to know each other a little better.
  3. Write a handwritten note. Taking the time to write a few lines to each employee is a great way to show your appreciation and personalized messages are guaranteed to be well-received.
  4. Give employees a gift. Whether it’s big or small, show employees that you care with a small token of the company’s appreciation.
  5. Take care of your employees’ health. Promote wellness by offering a gym discount, inviting a speaker on health, hosting a stress workshop, or doing something that shows your employees that you care about and value their health and well-being.
  6. Reward hard work and positive attitudes with unique awards. Developing categories that are relevant to your company and matching each employee with an award is a fun and personal way to show that you care about each individual.
  7. Plan a staff appreciation day and involve employees in the planning. Talk to employees about an appreciation event and see what they would like the day to look like. Whether it’s a company picnic, a pancake breakfast, or a “Bring Your Dog to Work Day,” take time to learn about how your employees want to be shown support and follow through on your efforts.
