Most successful companies get decent revenues and reports because of their dedicated employees. From the higher ups to the lowest ranking employees, each one complete their tasks everyday and ensure that they’re never late the next day. With the accumulation of their hard work and their dedication for the company, it’s not a shock that the company soars and carves the name for years to come.
But as the company reaps the benefits, they should remember the people behind the success that helped seal the fate of the company. While it’s true that not all employees contributed for the success, it’s important to make those who worked twice as hard to be thanked and rewarded for the service they provided. Because if these performers left, the company will definitely feel the tremor of the change.
Here are examples on how you can thank your employees:
- Gifts. May it be office related gadgets or for their houses, giving them something that they might use and enjoy in their own time. While it doesn’t have to be grandiose, it definitely helps them remember the times they performed well if the item itself is useful. It might even motivate them to perform better for the future as well! You can maybe give them work-related coupons – getting off work early, longer breaks, and the like. Or you can add a few recreational games or a handy new coffee machine that serves better coffee, the gifts can change, but your thanks are forever sealed in their memories.
- Dedicate an event for them. It’s nice when someone surprises you with flowers and a party, imagine what your employees would feel when you throw a party just for them! After sealing an important deal and adding a few zeroes to your revenue, maybe it’s time to plan the best event for the people who worked hard to make that happen. Call up a catering company and maybe add a few fun but challenging games to the mix to de-stress. If you feel extra sappy and thankful for their efforts, maybe you can add in a customised cake to make them feel extra special. You can even have a mini event and give out fun certificates of what they’re known for in the office.
- Acknowledge their efforts. If your company is too busy and tight for schedules, the best you can do is to acknowledge what they have done for the company. It can even be a reward point system that gives them a free lunch, an early pass, or maybe an extra paid leave. Each can require a specific amount of points depending on what they have done for the office. If you want, you can also add in an employee of the month and post their photo on the wall for the entire month. For a more personalised touch, you can even deliver a letter to them which you wrote by hand specially for them.
