Spring is a wonderful time for employee appreciation; the warmer weather and return of sunshine help boost your team’s morale! After working hard all winter long, your employees deserve some kudos. Read on for four great ideas to show your team you’re grateful this spring.
4 Employee Appreciation Ideas for Spring
- An Outdoor Event
A picnic, scavenger hunt or challenge course can all be great activities to treat your employees this springtime. After spending 40 hours a week cooped up indoors, an afternoon outside can do wonders for their morale, energy levels and sense of team spirit.
- Themed Parties
Parties are a great way to show your employee appreciation, especially if the weather outside is frightful. Choose from spring themes like St. Patrick’s Day, blooming flowers or butterflies; they represent a spring transformation.
- Surprise Thank You Notes
Everyone enjoys a handwritten card; it makes them feel valued and respected. Leave your employees small notes of encouragement on their desks, in the break room or in the conference room. They’ll be thankful for the time you took to call them out and they will feel more appreciated for a job well done.
- Go Volunteering
Everyone appreciates a day outside of the office and volunteerism is a fantastic way to show your community pride and support. Thank your team with a fun day of giving back; celebrate Earth Day (April 22nd) by planting a tree on company grounds, dedicate a bench in the community or help out at a local nonprofit. It will show your workers you care about the community and it will be a fun way to build a cohesive team.
Getting outdoors, throwing a spring-themed part, leaving surprise thank you notes and charitable work are all great ways to show your employees you value their hard work.
