Whether we like to admit it or not, the jobs we do take up a large part of our life, which means that the people we work with become like our second family. I know that frequently work can be very tiresome, and the faces of our colleagues may not always be something that we want to see early in the morning, however, it still doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t showcase gratitude at the office.
If you share my opinion, then the next thing you’re supposed to do is to take a look at the tips that I put together today that will explain to you how to perfectly showcase some gratitude at work. So let’s see what you can do!
Embrace A “No Meeting” Day!
Before I further dive into this topic, I would just like to remind you that today, I’ll single out several ways you can show gratitude. However, if you want to be provided with more awesome ideas, then cast your eyes on Workhuman’s post on gratitude in the workplace which is loaded with some awesome tips. Now, let’s go back to where I started.
The truth is, most people are tired of meetings and are yearning for something that’s more casual and relaxing. Thereby, I would advise you to have a “no meeting” day at least once a week.
This way, you will show your workers that you do not care about work-related tasks only, but that you care for their overall well-being as well. Additionally, they’ll be able to focus on other things without being distracted by the meetings.
Don’t Forget To Say Thanks!
Saying “Thank you” these days seems like a forgotten word, unfortunately. However, do not let this trend take over you too! Keep in mind that this is a phenomenal way to show people at work how grateful you are for having them on your “team”.
Do you remember how when we were kids, our parents taught us how crucial it is to say “Thank you!” to anyone who is good to us, and this referred to strangers as well? Well, then why wouldn’t you use this method to express your appreciation to people you see on a daily basis?
Unfortunately, even though this is nothing but a small sign of gratitude, a lot of companies nowadays lack it.
Entertaining Events Are Always Desirable
I know that there are a plethora of firms where colleagues celebrate things like birthdays, holidays, or any other special occasion. And even though that’s great, don’t you think that it would be amazing if you introduced another event that can be organized just to show your employees how thankful you are for being part of your business?
Now, it doesn’t necessarily have to be anything that’s costly or difficult to organize. A simple lunch or dinner will get the job done. Of course, if you want to take things up a notch, then you can also reward them with a gift certificate.
I know that you may not be always in the mood to do any of these things, however, I can assure you that if you implement at least one of these tips above, your workers are going to love you even more.
