Improve Team Morale, Reduce Planning Time with an Employee Appreciation Day Theme

Incorporating an Employee Appreciation Day theme in your event planning reduces the amount of work required of the event coordinator. Isn’t that a welcome idea?! A recognition theme provides the message and look of your celebration plus coordinating gifts and materials. An Employee Appreciation Day theme will reinforce a value, behavior, or express appreciation of a certain characteristic, making your event more effective at improving employee morale, motivation and engagement.

Thanks for All You Do – The simple message is often the most effective. All employees want to feel appreciated by their managers and employers, so using thank you as your Employee Appreciation Day theme can impact morale and satisfaction around the office. Since your recognition theme is centered on appreciation, give employees a handwritten note of thanks or a gift they can use in and out of the office. A travel mug paired with a coffee house gift card, On-the-Move Gift Set , or a handy flashlight will be welcome gifts to your hard workers.

Present employees with a Character Pin or even the You Rock rock , and then bust out karaoke, Rock Band or mock rock (lip syncing competition) during the day. But be careful. Planning such a great day will elevate you to rock star status and may attract groupies.
