Here are ten ways to show your appreciation to employees and coworkers. Why don’t you go ahead and make their day?

•        Praise something your coworker has done well.

Identify the specific actions that you found admirable. This praise feels sincere since you took the time to spell out details—not just, “You did a good job.” Also You also emphasize the actions that you’d like to see the employee do more often and everybody benefits when people experience clear direction.

•        Say thank you.

Show your appreciation for their hard work and contributions. And, don’t forget to say please often as well. Social niceties do belong at work. A more gracious, polite, civilized workplace is appreciated by all.

•        Ask your coworkers about their important interests.

Questions and acknowledgments about their family, their hobby, their weekend or a special event they attended are always welcome. Your genuine interest—as opposed to being nosey—causes people to feel valued and cared about. Demonstrate this interest regularly by asking questions such as, “How did Johnny’s tournament turn out this weekend?”

•        Offer staff members flexible scheduling for the holidays, if feasible.

If work coverage is critical, post a calendar so people can balance their time off with that of their coworkers. (Note that a flexible work schedule is a benefit that employees desire all of the time.)

  • Present a personalized gift.

Know your coworker’s interests well enough to present a small gift occasionally. An appreciated gift and the gesture of providing it will light up your coworker’s day. Moreover, a greeting card serves the same purpose. You can give a card for no reason at all, to celebrate a special day such as a birthday, or to offer sympathy when a coworker is ill or experiences a family death.

•        If you can afford to, give staff members money.

End of the year bonuses, attendance bonuses, quarterly bonuses and gift certificates say “thank you” quite nicely.

•        Almost everyone appreciates food.

Take coworkers or staff to lunch for a birthday, a special occasion or for no reason at all. Let your guest pick the restaurant. Or, order pizza or lunch from a caterer or a store that delivers. Schedule a brunch for a team that has met its current goals and overdelivers on its promised timeline.

•        Create a fun tradition for a seasonal holiday.

Companies’ employees draw names for their Secret Santa gift exchange. A Job Searching expert, used to work in Career Services where they did a gift grab at their annual holiday party.

For Example, We celebrate Treat Tuesday, every Tuesday between Thanksgiving and Christmas. We match up departments or people who don’t normally work together as a unit and assign a day to provide gooey, healthy or scrumptious treats for the other groups. It’s a great mixer, an opportunity to show off our culinary skills and a morale builder—to say nothing of the sugar high.”

•        Treat staff members.

Bring in bagels, doughnuts or another treat for staff and coworkers. Offerings such as cookies or cupcakes, particularly anything that you’ve baked personally, are a huge hit. (Have you tried baking cupcakes in ice cream cones? People love them.) Another hit? Bring chocolate—chocolate anything.

•        Finally, provide opportunity.

People want chances for training and cross-training. They want to participate on a special committee where their talents are noticed. However, They like to attend professional association meetings and represent your organization at civic and philanthropic events. Do you currently have only your executives attending these events? Spread the wealth of opportunity to all employees. They will genuinely appreciate the opportunities.
