Ways to Thank Your Team on Employee Appreciation Day

February 29, 2024

Friday, March 1, is Employee Appreciation Day for 2024. Originated by employee engagement consultant Dr. Bob Nelson in 1995 in collaboration with his company, Workman Publishing, the day has since become a time set aside in the United States and other countries to recognize workers for their efforts.

Promotional product provider HALO Branded Solutions has published an online guide that outlines 10 ways managers can celebrate and recognize their employees on this day. Here, from that list, are just a few simple but meaningful ideas that you can use to thank your team for their hard work:

Recognize someone—Take the time to specifically thank and honor employees who have done outstanding work.

Write a note—Leave personalized notes in your own handwriting for your employees, expressing your appreciation.

Give the gift of time—Extend paid time off that the employees wouldn’t normally receive, like the ability to leave early that day or take a longer lunch.

Plan a special meal—Make the typical meal break a celebration, with catered food, tokens of appreciation, and verbal expressions of your thanks.

Spread the word— Via your typical business communications (emails, memos, social media, meetings), announce Employee Appreciation Day to your crew and let them know the ways you are planning to celebrate.

If your team includes employees who work remotely, make sure that anything you are doing to show your appreciation takes them into account as well. Time off and physical gifts, such as an emailed gift card, can apply to both in-house and remote workers.
