In small offices these days, seems that the few works are not given enough praise on the good jobs they do. By the amount of cut backs that offices have, at times these workers are worked to the bone and never give recognition.
Managers and owners should take the time to give the staff an item that will show their appreciation. By taking time out of your day and getting a secretary a gift or small gift basket can make them feel they are needed and many times, they work harder to see if they get more. By taking your time several times a year to do this will keep your staff happy and they will know they are needed.
A simple gift basket that says thank you and maybe a card that has a note from you can go a long way. There are many baskets that you can purchase that can be just for a thank you, for example one might have: Thanks A Million Fortune Cookies, Chunky Salsa, Brent & Sames Chocolate Chip Cookies w/ a Thanks A Million Label, Nacho Tortilla Chips, Parmesan Foccacia Bites, Crunchy Caramel Corn, and Thanks A Million Theme bag w/ Mints, Thanks A Million Bite Size Cookies in a theme box, Stone Wheat Crackers. Many online retailers have items as mentioned with printing on them, such as “thanks a million”.
Many times these gifts are too much for just one person, if there is several you want to give this thoughtful gift to, and then just personalize the card. In doing a gesture as this, you yourself should feel great. You too have done a good deed and now your workers will look at you in a different light.
