The first Friday in March has traditionally become Employee Appreciation Day. For 2021, March 5th is the day to celebrate.
Although it’s considered an unofficial holiday, the day is recognized annually throughout the USA and Canada to praise personnel’s hard work.
The first acknowledgment of Employee Appreciation Day stems back to 1995, when a board member of the Recognition Professionals International, Bob Nelson, pushed recognition and appreciation of the employee’s workplace. Now, 25 years later, the perception of “workplace” may have changed, “but hard work prevails, and gratitude goes a long way.
Now the question is, what do you do to honor this day?
Unwrap the gift of appreciation! Show your employees how much you care for them this year. Though you may be miles apart, it is now more important than ever to show your thanks and appreciation for their commitment and loyalty.
CREATIVE Ways to Show Gratitude for Employee Appreciation Day: During Covid
Working from home sounds fantastic but being forced to share the space with your significant other while they work from home, your child(ren)s homeschooling, the fear of Covid-19, and anxiety of limited interaction. Let’s face it, all stressful. Show your employees you care! Let them know, “We are in this together, and your hard work is appreciated.”
To start, what better way to show gratitude than providing your employee the gift of Zen. Thoughtful gifts of relaxation, pampering, and senseful aromas to show appreciation and remind them its ok to unwind, too.
