How to Thank Your Employees

How often do you thank your employees for a good job? Surprisingly, more than 50 percent of workers complain that they are never thanked. Don’t be the type of manager that takes their team for granted! With Thanksgiving Day just a few weeks away, here are five simple ways to say thank you to your team.

  1. Write a personalized thank you to each team member on real stationery, not via e-mail. Mention one accomplishment the employee achieved and how it made a difference. 
  2. Bring in lunch or dessert and give employees an extra hour of time to socialize. Adhere to social distancing guidelines and keep remote employees in mind and have them join via a tele-conference. Make sure you give a short speech that highlights major successes the team realized in the past year.
  3. Host an all-team, off-site event. Be mindful of social distancing.
  4. Create personalized certificates of appreciation for each employee.
  5. Allow employees to have extra time off during the holiday season as a thank you for their hard work.

Get in the habit of regularly and frequently saying thank you and showing your appreciation for your team. Recognition is good for morale, improves retention, creates a sense of ownership among employees, and helps them become more positively productive.
