‘Tis the Season of Gratitude: Simple Ways to Show Employees You Care – Part 2

There’s power in showing employees your appreciation. Glassdoor’s Employee Appreciation Survey discovered that 4 out of 5 employees are motivated to work harder when their employer conveys gratitude for their efforts.

We recently shared 5 simple ways you can show your employees how much you appreciate them. Here are 4 additional ideas for demonstrating gratitude to your hard-working team members this season.

Provide Creative Perks

Cool perks can set you apart among employers. They don’t have to be costly. They just need to show that you’ve thought about making your employees’ personal and professional lives a little better. Some examples:

- Company-provided food, beer, and happy hours

- Strategize over cocktails in a fun environment instead of the typical conference room

- Encourage sleep and vacations

- Encourage activities at work that gets everyone engaging and having fun

- Encourage mindfulness and exercise to reduce stress, like yoga, meditation, or a mid-day walk

- Be transparent about the state of the company –and make sure they know their impact on the bottom line and overall success of the organization

- Give them a free day of PTO when they’ve gone above and beyond

Make Time for Your Employees

It’s hard for employees to feel appreciated when their leader is too busy for a simple chat. We all get caught up in day-to-day projects and appear too busy for the people around us. But by holding yourself accountable to have regular conversations with your team members, employees will feel valued and respected.

Little Things Do Matter

A quick email to your team after a win or a note of encouragement during a big sale can go a long way, especially if you’re working with a limited amount of time. A few sentences explaining why you value them is all it takes and if you can’t think of anything you value about each employee, consider that a red flag.

Create Opportunities for New Experiences

When an employee shows interest in different aspects of the business, pay attention and accommodate them. Provide opportunities for new trainings or conferences if they show interest in expanding their knowledge and impact on the organization.

A Final Thought

Before your employees will care about the vision and success of the company, they need to feel that you see each of them as a person — not just an “employee” to execute your to-do list. They need to feel that their leader — and the company — is invested in them. Once you show your team how much you value them, there’s nothing they won’t strive to accomplish.
