Does your employee like to read? Recognize employee appreciation day by stopping at a local store and buying them a gift card or a book on a subject you know that they are interested in.
2. UNIQUE SWAG
Sometimes that sweet, sweet company sweatshirt is all you need for employee appreciation day. It not only creates a stronger bond between you and your employee but can help to foster a positive company culture.
3. COMPANY SOCK CLUB
Who doesn’t like a pair of unique socks, particularly when they show how much you know about your employees’ hobbies? You can never have enough socks with musical instruments on them, right!?
4. COMPANY CULTURE
Think of company culture as also rewarding your employee on employee appreciation day with gifts that speak to culture. If you are from a large city, you know just how expensive a theater ticket can be. You can make employee appreciation day special by giving two theater passes to a hot show!
5. A CUP OF COFFEE
Make that a cup of really good coffee for your employee. After all, employee appreciation day comes but once a year. You’ve been at a local coffee joint with your team. You’ve seen just what coffee your employee likes. Buy a mug. Add a bag of coffee and a gift certificate. You’re set!
6. PERSONALIZED MESSAGE
There are so many small ways to reward someone on employee appreciation day. Go to LinkedIn and congratulate your employee with a personal message. Write them a note and leave it on their desk. What is most important is that you show that you care.
