1. Recognize individuals for a job well done
– because who doesn’t love hearing what a great job they’re doing? Recognizing someone for their hard work also reinforces positive behavior and sets an example.
Encourage your team’s effort rather than skill. This promotes the continuation of hard work and ensures your team will apply consistent energy to projects in the office.
2. A personal, handwritten note
Write a personal note showing that you’ve been paying attention. With most communication going digital, a handwritten note goes a long way in showing someone how much you appreciate them.
A quick “thank you” via email may seem impersonal, while a handwritten note exhibits intention and effort. Show your team you respect and appreciate the time they devote toward your goals.
3. A thoughtful gift
Take notes and remember small details about your team members. Gift something that shows you’ve been listening and paying attention to the conversations you’ve had.
See someone having a hard week? This is a great time to hone your gift-giving skills. To keep track of each individual’s favorite things, consider creating an “About Me” questionnaire for future reference. These questionnaires can also be shared with the team for birthdays and special occasions.
4. Team Swag
Who doesn’t like free stuff? Get your logo out there and give away some company swag while you’re at it. Promotional products are a great way to brand your company in the public eye. Gift your employees with useful and fun team swag to raise morale while raising brand awareness.
Need ideas? Consider products that serve a useful purpose. Some of our favorites include tumblers, mugs, pullovers and pens!
5. Write them a recommendation
In the business world, a recommendation is like currency. Speak well of your team members and offer a written or verbal recommendation. Whether your employee is applying for a promotion or new position, sharing words of affirmation are a great way to let someone know that their work is valued within your company.
6. Link their work to the company
Is your team working on a great, new project? Did they win an award or gain the praise of a client? Showcase a team member’s work on social media or your company’s website. This not only gives your company a personal edge, it helps lift your team’s morale, especially after a job well done.
7. Celebrate personal milestones
Remember your team members’ birthdays, work anniversaries and other milestones happening in the office! Keep a shared calendar of important dates, send out a card signed by the rest of the team and make sure each person knows you’re paying attention to their lives outside of the office.
