Whether it’s Employee Appreciation Day or any other day of the year, recognising and rewarding your team for their hard work is always a good idea. We’ve put together 5 different and fun ways to celebrate Employee Appreciation Day this Friday.

3. Plan a virtual happy hour
A quick and easy way to demonstrate employee appreciation is by setting up after-hours virtual happy hours with employees. Everyone is missing that Friday feeling and after-work drinks, although we can’t all be together in person why not suggest a virtual get together with employees, this is a great way to catch up and keep spirits high.
4. Mental well-being days off
Working from home seems to have blurred the line between home and office, resulting in employees working up to three hours longer. It can sometimes be difficult to switch off when working remotely. Companies may want to introduce a company-wide day off to encourage employees to look after themselves and their wellbeing. Achievers recently gave their employees January 4th off as “Rest-o-lution Day.” A company-wide day to reflect on goals and the year ahead, more and more companies are getting on board with the idea, another great way to show you care and value your employees.
5. Send a little something special
Employee appreciation day is the perfect time to show your colleagues how much you care with staff appreciation gifts! It could be a lovely bouquet of flowers or a personalised hamper with all their favourite things.
