The Super Simple 4-Step Guide to Rocking Employee Appreciation Day

Employee Appreciation Day 2016 is on Friday, March 4!

The CEO of Globoforce, Eric Mosley, said to Inc., “Companies should look at Employee Appreciation Day like it's Valentine's Day, or Mother's or Father's Day. The sentiments we share and the way we make others feel on those days is how we should act every day.” If you’re a parent, you probably know how good it feels to get slightly-burnt-toast or a-little-bit-soggy-cereal brought into your bedroom by a kid with a huge grin on his face. That’s the spirit of the day! It’s not necessarily about the quality of the mother’s day breakfast, it’s about the intention. Even if your special breakfast features clumpy instant coffee, your effort in making your employees appreciated will not go unnoticed! That is to say, even if you’re not a natural crafter or gregarious congratulator, follow these four simple steps and you’ll rock this Employee Appreciation Day!
