The Holiday season can be a hectic time. With workload piling up, Holiday parties left and right, it's easy to forget to take a moment to thank your employees for all their hard work.
The end of the year is a great time to stop and find a way to show your gratitude to your staff for a great year. Reflect on all that you've accomplished this past year, and understand that a little effort goes a long way when it comes to thanking and appreciating your employees.
You don't have to throw an expensive or elaborate party to demonstrate your thanks. Here are just a few easy ways that you can show your appreciation this year...
1. Give a surprise extra vacation day(s) for the following year
Want to really surprise and delight your hardworking employees this year? Give them the gift of more paid vacation.
Traditional paid vacation policies can be limiting to many employees, especially ones with families that struggle to find more time. Surprise your employees with an extra day or two for all the hard work that they have put in throughout the year. Your employees will appreciate your generosity and will be thrilled to take advantage of the extra time off.
Your employees will feel appreciated and valued - plus it'll help you avoid employee burnout!
2. Give them an awesome company branded gift
