5 Ways to Thank Your Employees in 2018

At Kmet Consulting, we hope you and your business have had a prosperous 2017.  With 2018 on our doorstep, we want to give you some ideas to make next year even better! Your company wouldn't be what it is today without them and showing gratitude can motivate your employees to work even harder for you. Our HR consulting firm is here to give you a few examples of things you can do to show your employees appreciation for all the things they do for you.

5 Ways to Thank Your Employees for All Their Hard Work

1. Reward your employees with more paid vacation time to spend with their families.
Vacations can feel far and few in between and quality time with the family can mean everything. Show your employees you care and reward them with more vacation time. A good vacation and some time off to unwind can make your employee feel refreshed and motivated to work harder when they come back.

2. Show your employee you really "know" them with a thoughtful gift.
You can truly make your employee feel special if you give them a gift that shows you know them. For example, if you know that your employee is a big “foodie” and that they love to cook, get them some nice cookware. Anyone can gift a plain old coffee mug or new fancy pen, but if you really show you know your employees passion through your gift, that can make a big difference.

3. Implement a "Wall of Thank You's".
Employees love to be recognized for good work.  Consider a wall displaying notes that thanks and recognizes their hard work. Displaying thank you notes and showing the whole company your gratitude for your employees can make for a positive work environment and instill confidence in the employees you’re thanking. It can also motivate other employees to work harder so they can have a public display of gratitude as well.

4. Make a donation to your employee's favorite charity.
If you know your employee has a close friend who has cancer or a passion to help those who can’t afford to purchase food for their families, take that into account when deciding how to thank them. You can really touch your employee’s heart by making a donation to a charity they are passionate about.

5. Buy food from your employee's favorite restaurant for lunch.
If you know your employee is having a tough week and they are working tirelessly for you, take that opportunity to buy them lunch from their favorite restaurant. This can be a great way to relieve some work related stress. Allow them to take a much-needed break and enjoy some great food. This also can show your employee that you “know” them by presenting them with their favorite lunch. 

“Gratitude in advance is the most powerful creative force in the Universe.” – Neale Donald Walsh
