A party and some cake is nice. But sometimes employees are looking for something a little more personal.
Sure we’re in the technology age when there’s an app for everything and a million ways to get in touch with your employees at the drop of a hat. And those are valuable time-/cost-savers that should be used regularly. But on a day designed specifically to show workers how much they are valued, all the technology in the world falls short of a handwritten note expressing appreciation for a job well done.
Employees who come to work and find a handwritten thank you note on their desk from the boss will likely be smiling all week.
