Happy Employee Appreciation Day!

Employee Appreciation is an excellent opportunity to recognize your employees’ hard work and dedication to their roles. How will you honor your valued employees on this day?

Employee Appreciation Day was first introduced in 1995, and since then has been celebrated each year on the first Friday of March.

It is easy for everyone in the working world to get caught up with the day-to-day tasks of working life, which is why having a designated holiday for employees is important. The purpose of Employee Appreciation Day is for employers and managers in all industries to acknowledge the hard work and dedication of their employees.

At Fora Financial we believe that our employees are the core of our company.

It is widely suggested that employee recognition is one of the most powerful motivators in any company. Without consistent employee recognition, your employees may take their talents elsewhere.

Recognition can come in many different forms which makes it easy and affordable to boost your employee’s morale. Here are a few ways that you can honor your employees on Employee Appreciation Day:

  • Host an Employee Appreciation party
  • Give employees an early dismissal or extra vacation day
  • Offer a catered breakfast or lunch
  • Send them a gift card

If you find it difficult to recognize your employees on a more frequent basis, then celebrating Employee Appreciation day is an effective way to let your employees know they are not forgotten. Make sure to tell your staff that it is Employee Appreciation Day, and explain how you appreciate each and every one of their contributions to your small business. Consider your employees’ needs, and how Employee Appreciation Day can be used to meet their specific requests. Your employees will be appreciative when they see that you take their requests seriously!

At Fora Financial, we believe that our employees are the core of our company. Without the employees that make up the inner workings of our company, we would not be able to continue to grow and thrive as a company. This Employee Appreciation Day, Fora Financial will honor and celebrate our employees with good food and quality time together.
