She keeps … Web: Details Thanksgiving may be over but it’s important that as a leader you always remember to show your staff the appreciation they deserve. Unfortunately, in many workplaces, employees are not told “thank you” enough which can lead to feelings of resentment and discontent. Here are four easy and inexpensive ways you can give your staff the recognition they’ve earned.Write a personalized thank you noteThere’s something so personal and special about a handwritten letter (or email). Hearing directly from you superior about a job well done is something that really hits home for employees. Even if it’s a small note of gratitude, directly reaching out to them makes such a huge impact that won’t be forgotten.Host a potluck lunchIt’s not always in the company budget to invite employees out to lunch or dinner to show your appreciation, and that’s okay. As they say, it’s the thought that counts. So instead, organize a potluck lunch that everyone can participate in. That way they will feel involved and special all while getting their mind off their work even for just a little while.Let them leaveEven though “quittin’ time” is typically 5pm, because you’re the boss, you can often adjust that schedule when you see fit. If an employee has accomplished goals and you want to let them know you’ve noticed, let them leave an hour early one afternoon. Allowing employees to have a little extra free time shows them that you value their hard work and dedication to the company.Make an announcementIf you’re about to lead a meeting, before you get started announce to others the accomplishments of an employee you’ve noticed has hit it out of the park. It doesn’t have to be a ten-minute speech, but just expressing your gratitude in front of the team will make the employee feel proud and will also encourage others to keep working toward their goals.last_img read more
