Once you manage to safely dispose of the rotting jack-o’-lanterns on your doorstep, it’s officially the season for thankfulness. Before you get caught up in the craziness of the holidays, don’t forget to give thanks to the people who matter most — including your employees!
November is Gratitude Month at Limeade. We’ll give you lots of fun tips, inspiration and resources on how to show your team you care all month long.
Why gratitude matters
We know that when employees feel their employer cares about their well-being, they’re 38 percent more engaged. In fact, gratitude is a powerful way to show your employees that you not only appreciate their hard work and recognize their accomplishments, but you also care about them as a person.
How to embrace gratitude in your workplace
Whether it’s surprising an employee with their favorite snack, or a simple handwritten note of support and appreciation on a Post-it — when it comes to employee gratitude, a little goes a long way. The key is to make it personal. And the goal is to acknowledge the recipient and their accomplishment or hard work in a meaningful way.
This month Limeade is celebrating gratitude with thank you notes from the leadership team, guest speakers, a Thanksgiving potluck, an internal gratitude social media campaign and more.
