The holidays are a special time for all of us. A time to show appreciation for the people in our lives whether they are family, friends, or members of our team. This has been a very difficult year and now, perhaps more than ever, it’s important that you show your team how much you appreciate them. In order to help you, we thought we’d share four ways to thank your team for their incredible efforts in this trying year.
A Moment of Your Time
Investing time in people is one of the very best ways to show we care and value them. One great idea to help show your thanks for team members is to schedule some time with them, one on one, and make yourself available. Let them know how appreciative you are, then give them the floor and see what they need. This will give you some insight into how you can invest in them,
A Handwritten Note
In 2020 we’ve become a world of remote work. Video meetings and conferences have replaced much of the office world so many of us have grown used to. It’s also why we tend to communicate through emails. Efficiency is great, but it doesn’t convey thanks like a simple handwritten note. Taking that moment to express some truly heartfelt thanks can be worth far more than you know.
On a very basic level, people work because they are compensated. Showing your thanks can come in the form of a bonus or a gift card can really help during these times, and can show that you, as a leader, are sharing the wealth your team helped create.
Be Creative with Investment
Is there something your team members want to learn? Some way you can help set them up for success? Maybe there’s a course that can help them, or some books you think might serve them well. This one may take some thinking, but setting your team up for success is one of the best ways to show them your thanks.
