What Are You Thankful for When It Comes to Your Workforce?

November 21st, 2016

This time of year is a great time for employers to consider all the things that have made their company great. Being thankful for the hard work and efforts of employees is a big part of this success. What are you most appreciative of when it comes to your workforce?

  • Quality workmanship
  • Loyal employees
  • Reaching sales goals
  • Customer service ratings
  • High safety ratings
  • New ideas and innovations
  • Positive corporate culture
  • Excellent employee referrals
  • Self-starters and team leads
  • Making sacrifices for the company

These are just a handful of the many ways that employees provide value in any workplace. In each organization, goals can be different, but the best employees make it happen. How can your company express gratitude where employees are concerned?

Have an employee appreciation week

Set the stage for a weeklong celebration of your human resources with a daily email thanks to your employees. Create a daily perk for employees with a free breakfast or lunch, fun team-building games, and more.

Give all employees a year-end bonus

Cash incentives are very welcomed by hard-working employees. Make it a point to have a fund set aside to give out a nice cash bonus at the end of each year.

Provide meaningful tasks and projects

Employees feel appreciated when they have the chance to work on projects that reflect their skills and talents. Take the time to get to know your employees and assign tasks that are worthy of their value.

Hire temps during busy seasons

One way to show employees how much you appreciate them is to avoid overwhelming them during peak seasons. Prevent employee burnout by hiring temp employees to augment your current workforce.

Make the workplace more family friendly

A huge value for today’s workforce is having an employer that honors family and flexibility with policies that put these aspects first. Younger employees especially enjoy the ability to take time off when needed, work varied schedules, and even work from home as needed.

Say thanks to your employees year-round with the above ideas.
