While Valentine’s Day at the office is probably the most unromantic concept you can think of, it is a fantastic opportunity to show your employees a little love. Consider throwing a pink and heart-shaped bash for all the people who matter most to your organization. Odds are there will be a few volunteers to help. Bring some sweet treats and drinks to let them know you care.
For all other matters of the heart, consider treating your employees with these simple ideas as referenced in the Inc article: 10 Ways to Show Your Employees You Love Them:
1) Make them happy!
By rewarding your employees, you can make a huge impact on their perception of the organization and their overall satisfaction at work. Consider implementing an Incentive Program to reward them for meeting specific business goals. It’s a win-win situation!
2) Keep Things Interesting
According to a new Virgin Pulse survey, 58 percent of workers enjoy a “challenging job.” Don’t let them down! By creating tasks that may push your employees past their comfort levels, you are also helping them grow within the organization, develop additional skill sets, and boost confidence in their abilities.
3) Sick Workers? Let Them Stay Home.
Think about it. Not only are you letting your employees know you care about them and their well-being, but you are also ensuring the health of everyone else at the office who may be affected. Remember to encourage employees to use sick days; they’re built in for a reason!
4) Get Flexible
Consider implementing a telecommunication plan where employees can work from home one or two times a week. Even if your employees don’t take you up on the offer, just having the choice makes employees feel valued within the company. Having a balanced work-life ratio is definitely a major factor of employee satisfaction.
So tell us, what are you doing to show your employees some love?
