Employee Appreciation: Tips for Small Biz Owners

Your employees are the reason your business is able to function. Without them, you’d be overwhelmed with work and responsibilities. So, what better way to show your appreciation for their hard work and dedication than one (or more) of these suggestions? After all, happy employees equate to productivity, lack of turnover, and increased morale. Before taking the following advice, protect your operation with a customized Santa Fe EPLI policy.

Let them off early.

Nothing is more rewarding for a job well done than an early end to a day, especially after a huge deadline is met, a holiday is approaching, or they’ve been working hard on a project. Acknowledge their efforts by giving them an early off day.

Host a treat day.

While everyone would likely enjoy a nice lunch, you don’t have to dedicate 2 hours or a ton of money to show your employees that they’re valued. Bring in ice cream, cupcakes, or another treat and allow your employees to socialize and enjoy a break from work.

Show them off.

Put a short biography and a picture along with their job title on your website.

Have dog days.

Dogs are man’s best friend, so why not let them bring their pets into work? Designate a few days a month where your employees can bring their dogs to work – it’ll put a smile on everyone’s face.

Offer recreational activities.

You can also offer some fun activities for your team to enjoy while taking breaks throughout the day. You could follow Google’s lead by offering table tennis in the break room, or you could even set up a chessboard or video game console just to give people some different options, recommends Small Business Trends.

Upgrade the break room.

You don’t have to spend a lot of money to show you care, but investing in comfortable furniture and offering premium snacks and coffee machines are enough to allow your employees to enjoy their time at work.
