Recognition is more important now more than ever

A lot has happened over the last several months.  In the span of just a couple of days our lives changed forever with the COVID-19 pandemic.

The first Friday in March every year is employee appreciation day.  This year, that day took a back seat for millions of Americans to fight with all we have to save lives and protect our families.  Essential services became the new economy and behind those essential services were workers on the front lines.  Doctors, nurses, and other health care professionals were not the only ones saving lives, but other workers who insured we could get the essential services we need to live like cashiers, grocery stockers, warehouse workers, delivery drivers, pharmacists, police, fire department, EMS technicians, and the list goes on.  These are our new heroes.

We will eventually come out of this and our lives will return; all be it to a new way of “normal”.  When we do, we should all focus on those key people that really made an impact on us personally and our businesses.  A simple thank you can go a long way; a moment of sincere courtesy and respect.  These workers deserve our recognition more than ever to sustain them to continue to provide services and functions that help our lives and businesses survive during tough times.

Here are some other ideas to show employees how much we care about them:

1)  Lunch/Dinner from their favorite restaurant

2) Team Building Activity like Bowling or Mini Golf

3) Employee Recognition Program – Employee of the Month or Milestone Celebration

4) Group Gifts – Work from Home Accessories

5) A Day Off

6) Additional Bonus

At our belief is that there is no greater reward than recognition. The pleasure and enjoyment of receiving a custom award or trophy is our driving mission.

From our materials, to our designs, we set our sights on achieving the highest quality. We maintain high standards so together with you we celebrate achievement.
