  • 5 Ways to Celebrate National Thank You Month

    Start the new year right with National Thank You Month!

    Photo by Kostiantyn Li on Unsplash

     

    January is National Thank You Month!

    We hope you are ringing in the new year with optimism and excitement! It is a fresh new start and there is no better way to look forward than with gratitude. January is National Thank You Month and it is at the perfect time to invest in new activities to nurture gratitude and kindness in the coming year.

    Here are 5 ways to embrace gratitude and thanks all month long in life and in the workplace, setting the stage for a year full of these habits.

    5 Ways to Embrace Workplace Gratitude Now

    1. Make thank you note writing an accessible and fun activity for the year.

    A thank you note in honor of national thank you month

    After the holidays, parents often sit their kids down to write thank you notes for gifts. However, we don’t often practice what we preach. January is a perfect time to think of the gifts not only received during the holiday season but in life overall. What are the intangible gifts that you receive from others that make life better? Take the time to ponder who deserves an extra thank you and write a special note to them.

    In the workplace, share gThankYou’s how-to guide “Writing Thank You Notes Employees Will Treasure” to managers and provide supplies. Be sure senior management models the thank you note behavior they want from the rest of the staff to make sharing written appreciation part of your workplace culture.

    Commit to providing an “Appreciation Station” in the new year where all employees can grab a thank you card, fun pens and stamps. Make it easily accessible and regularly encourage team members to write notes to each other, customers, business partners, significant others and whoever else!

    2. Start a gratitude journal and gift them to your team.

    Gratitude journals may seem trendy, but for good reason. The act of written acknowledgement can be key in embracing gratitude. It puts words around feelings and can serve as a great reminder of all the positives in life when times are challenging.  There are volumes of research on the science of journaling and the wonders it does for our brain and how it impacts not just us, but also the people around us.

    If you are a leader in your organization, we highly recommend starting a gratitude journal and giving them out as gifts to your team. Once you experience the joy that ensues, it will likely feel very natural to want employees to also embrace the act. It serves as a thoughtful, productive gift that may resonate deeply with others.

    Consider offering journaling classes with an expert – an easy online offering that provides wellbeing benefits both personally and professionally. And, a great supplement with the gift of a gratitude journal.

    3. Embrace tech-based appreciation sharing.

    Thank you in multiple languages for national thank you month

    We are huge fans of written thank you notes (see #1), but there are also many ways to get the gratitude flowing through other platforms. In honor of national thank you month, try something new. As you know, tech can take may forms, so what works for you? What would employees’ appreciate? Not sure? Ask them!

    • A group text sharing thanks can be a high point of someone’s day – it’s quick and easy!
    • A shout out on an internal message board can make a team or individual feel like a VIP.
    • A social media spotlight can express thanks to a wide audience with some imagery, a video or a link to a success story.
    • A digital showering of “thank yous” when an employee is recognized by peers, customers or managers.

     

    Organizations that have collaborative platforms, message boards, internal communications channels and social media tools should embrace gratitude in tech-savvy ways. Check out the success of Thnks. Don’t forget the #gratitude #YouAreAwesome #thankyou hashtags!

    4. Reach out and thank those who deserve extra appreciation this year.

    This has been a time of uncertainty for everyone. Rules are consistently changing. Agility is not only helpful but critical for survival. Everyone has made sacrifices. So whether your team has worked extra hours, gone the extra mile to make things work, worked the front lines, or kept the company running from the back room, be sure to say thank you!

    We always think a Grocery Gift Certificate is appropriate – the gift of food is universal and always appreciated.

    Looking for creative yet meaningful thank you gift ideas? Check out gThankYou’s The Big List of Employee Appreciation Gift Ideas and be inspired!

    5. Find a quote and make it visible.

    Inspirational artwork by gapingvoid for gThankYou

    Read it, say it, live it. Find a quote about gratitude that speaks to you and put it somewhere in your line of sight. It can be a sticky note, a screen saver, a note pinned to the wall. Let this visual item be a constant reminder that you are grateful. Encourage other to do the same, and watch how contagious gratitude can be. Here are some gratitude quotes to get you started.

    Consider updating the office with a culture wall and provide a budget for employees’ remote offices to choose gapingvoid inspirational artwork. Categories including: gratitude, appreciation, collaboration and much more!

    Commit to Gratitude in the New Year

    Let the new year inspire you to focus on nurturing gratitude in your personal and work lives. To go deep into understanding why gratitude is so powerful and how to harness it for the workplace, download our FREE eBook, “Transform Your Workplace with Gratitude“.

  • Summer Reboarding – Make it Fun!

    Summertime Reboarding Means Outside Fun!

    On the topic of “reboarding” employees, take advantage of being outside for social events to celebrate employees returning to the workplace or who have been there all along! Outside, it’s easier to socially distance and still have fun – perfect for summer reboarding activities.

    Who needs workplace fun? We all do after more than a year of COVID, societal tension and volatile politics. Social events are great for workplace culture and morale which are as important as ever right now.

    Parties and team building exercises may not look exactly like they used to, but with some creativity and agility, the fun committee is back in session!

  • Reboarding: The Mental Health Crisis

    Research shows that Americans are facing a mental health crisis. At gThankYou, mental health wellness is close to our hearts. We hope to help organizations make strides in sustaining a safe, welcoming environment. It will be noticed and appreciated.

    The Olympics has highlighted how pervasive mental health challenges are when even elite athletes are not immune. Michael Phelps reminds us in a recent article in support of Simone Biles that “…If we’re not taking care of both [physical and mental health], how are we ever expecting to be 100%?” True for all of us, not just the elite few.

    As leaders of organizations, we need to understand the poor state of our country’s mental health at this time. Then we can offer ways to help. It’s that simple. Every employee experienced some level of uncertainty and fear that surrounded the pandemic. Current mental health struggles are often related to loss, isolation, or hopelessness. But we CAN collectively address these issues.

  • How to Prioritize Workplace Well-Being

    If workplace well-being isn’t on your priority list, now’s the time to put it on the top. Worksite wellness initiatives have been gathering steam for quite a while, but the pandemic wreaked havoc on health in a wide variety of ways. To truly appreciate your team members, be sure to provide a healthy environment where the whole being can thrive.

    exercise - how to prioritize workplace well-being

    Photo: Dylan Gillis, Unsplash

    According to a recent report by Gallup,

    “Organizations are responsible for the wellbeing of their employees — alleviating burnout is the right thing to do. And, it is essential for engaging and retaining top talent.”

    Burnout is real. And it’s costly. Intelligent leaders are in-tune with the signs are offer ways to address the problem.

    An article from SHRM states, “Unsurprisingly, employee burnout levels in 2020—the year of the pandemic—were high, with one major shift from previous years: Fully remote workers are now experiencing more burnout than onsite workers. Before the pandemic, the perks of working remotely—either part- or full-time—led to lower levels of burnout compared with employees who were onsite all the time.

    “Burnout has effects on the micro and macro levels. If employees’ well-being suffers, they may turn to unhealthy coping mechanisms. They may also become less productive and unfocused.”

    Workplace well-being is THE priority to keep — if you want to keep employees.

    Want to keep your employees during what’s being called by NPR and others as “The Great Resignation”? Not only is workplace well-being a driver of employee happiness and productivity, it helps employees cope with the effects of burnout. In addition, bedrocks of workplace well-being like fitness, healthy eating and financial literacy actively repel the stressors that cause burnout.

  • Rebuild a Culture of Gratitude as You Reboard

    Consider your culture as you bring staff back to work

    As you reboard, it is a fantastic time to check your overall culture. It is important to welcome back employees back with intention and positivity. But does employee appreciation take center stage in your workplace? If you feel tentative about your answer, this is your chance! Building (or rebuilding) a culture of gratitude begins when employees are valued and appreciated.

  • Employee Appreciation is Key During “Welcome Back!”

     

    Workforces are trickling back into office buildings and teams are rejoining in person after a long pandemic-related hiatus. It feels a bit like starting over, doesn’t it? While safety is the number one priority, it’s also critical to view this period as an opportunity for employee appreciation.

    What is Reboarding? According to HR Daily Advisor,

    “Reboarding is the concept of bringing individuals back who were previous employees but away for some period of time. The idea is to modify onboarding for someone who is already familiar with your company but has been away.”

    Here at gThankYou, we are extremely optimistic about the potential for reboarding across all industries in businesses of all sizes. While there will be the necessary burden of policies, daily minutia, schedule conversations and so much more, there is also the gift of a restart — and employee appreciation.

    What if NOW was the perfect time to shift your leadership mentality? What if you lead all efforts in the “return to normalcy” with a mindset of employee appreciation? We recommend welcoming employees back with a few things in mind that could shape or reshape your culture for years to come.

  • Self-Compassion: Secret to Easing Workplace Transition

    Learn self-compassion with Tess Hayes's new book, "May You Shine: Love Letters to the Hurting, Healing and Growing Heart".

    As we emerge from the challenging pandemic to some sense of normalcy at both work and in our personal lives, it’s an ideal time to check in on how we are speaking to ourselves. Many of us had extra time alone with ourselves during the pandemic and while some people seemed to flourish, many of us struggled with added loneliness, stress, grief, and anxiety. Often our own internal voice during this time was our toughest critic and harshest judge. The transition back to an office or to a job can be rough right now.

    There is no better time to show ourselves some compassion and grace.

  • The Perfect Vaccination Incentive – Grocery Gift Certificates!

    Incentivize employees to receive their Covid vaccinations!

    Employers across all industries are facing major decisions about their policies for vaccinations. If it’s important or required that your employees get the vaccine, we have the perfect incentive – grocery gift certificates! Good for any combination of food-only products, redeemable at grocery stores nationally.

    At gThankYou, we work closely with organizations to ensure they have the right tools to engage and reward employees. Decades of experience have shown us that food is met with gratitude and is an excellent driver of positive action.

    This last year and a half have been extremely challenging for us all. However, now we are starting to regain some normalcy and gratitude towards our employees is more important than ever. While we are asking people to come back to work (or even if they were essential all along), there are a variety of ways to show thanks and even incentivize behavior.

    If you request or require vaccination for employees, we suggest a grocery gift certificate as a thoughtful gesture in return. As the workforce revs its engines again – in a new way – people may feel overwhelmed with tasks, time and transitions. We are here to help!

  • The Magic of On-the-Spot Recognition

    On-the-spot recognition = instant results. When you recognize employees right away, the benefits start right away. It’s simple and pays off. Try it today!

    According to Indeed.com, “When people are offered consistent, actionable feedback, they can gain better insight into their successes and opportunities for improvement. Positive feedback is especially important because it increases morale, encourages good work and helps provide a sense of purpose.”

    A once-a-year party is great for tradition, but it doesn’t ultimately affect day-to-day performance. Shift your paradigm from celebrating at the end of the year or on an anniversary to how can we keep appreciation and a culture of celebration alive all year-round?

    It’s time to make recognition an ongoing, everyday activity. Read on to find out why on-the-spot recognition is so effective — and easier than you think!

  • Recognize Employees for Small Wins to Build Confidence

    recognize employees and you'll have a happy workplace!

    Credit: Clay Banks, Unsplash

    We are here to remind you: Recognize employees for small wins regularly. Doing so results in a confident, productive workplace.

    Praise for specific acts of excellence builds employee self-confidence and increases engagement.

    Employee recognition is one of the most important responsibilities of leaders. It’s smart business, directly affecting productivity, retention and overall culture.

    According to Quantum Workplace,

    Organizations with formal recognition programs have 31% less voluntary turnover than organizations that don’t have any program at all. And they’re 12x more likely to have strong business outcomes.

    The best employee recognition fulfills a “core emotional need” in humans: to feel important. Your employees want to work for leaders who value them. Unfortunately, too many well-meaning employee recognition programs don’t make this emotional connection with employees.

    Ensure that your workplace leaders recognize employees effectively. Invest time and structured training so managers understand recognition expectations, and teach them how to effectively recognize people. We have put together some expert tips on what to do and what NOT to do when recognizing employees.

  • 7 Ways to Share Socially Distanced Kindness in the Workplace

    Share Kindness in the workplace this February!

    Brought to you by Elsie Weisskoff with REDBUBBLE Life

    February is the month of love and kindness. While some people thoroughly enjoy the multitude of candy hearts, red roses and pink teddy bears, others would rather skip right through to March. But February is much more than Valentine’s Day – it’s the month of kindness! Take advantage of this time to show compassion and support to colleagues at work. We all need a little extra appreciation these days.

    We admire the work that the Random Acts of Kindness Foundation has been doing for years. February 17th is Random Acts of Kindness day and this year’s theme is Explore the Good which is the perfect mindset for 2021.  They have a plethora of ideas, tips, inspiring quotes, materials like posters and calendars and even dedicated workplace materials. Check it out! Consider becoming a RAKtivist® (short for ‘Random Acts of Kindness activist).

    It’s been proven that one random act of kindness a day can reduce stress, anxiety and depression. Acts of kindness also release hormones that make you calmer, healthier and overall happier.

    “When you are kind to others, it not only changes you, it changes the world.”
    Harold Kushner

    At REDBUBBLE Life we’ve recently shared “14 Days of Socially Distant Love and Kindness” to inspire kindness this month. We are thrilled to share workplace specific examples for gThankYou readers below!

  • Engaging Employees in 2021 – Your Guide

    The Workplace Has Changed

    Our work lives have been transformed by the pandemic. Despite the optimism brought by vaccine approvals, the fact remains it may be a long-time before we are back to business as normal, if at all.

    This new world of work provides both challenges and opportunities for recruiting, nurturing and retaining employees. Workplace leaders recognize the value of being creative and adaptive during these times.

    Josh Bersin, HR industry expert, sees this time “as an incredible opportunity to transform”. “Companies are treating employees better than ever.” There is a new focus on protecting employees’ “personal productivity, wellbeing and personal resilience.”

    Rethinking Employee Engagement and Appreciation

    Our Employee Celebration Calendar could not come at a more needed time.

    We have created a resource that presumes social distancing and remote work will dominate 2021. And, one that provides the inspiration and creative ideas to help keep employees feeling valued and important to the success of your organization in the uncertain year ahead.

    Take advantage of this unique time to invest in employee engagement. Our popular one-of-a-kind resource provides the fresh perspective and resources you need to retool your employee appreciation efforts for today’s workplace.

    Showing appreciation is even more crucial now.

    As Sabina Nawaz wrote in a Harvard Business Review article about how a little thanks goes a long way:

    We’ve curated a collection of impactful and inspiring articles, resources, best practices, stats and quotes that will help guide you through 2021.

    The year ahead may still present challenges, but it also provides new opportunities to build connections with employees.  Eileen McNeely, a Harvard School of Public Health researcher, shared that her team’s studies indicate that caring and empathy from management and employee trust in management is a “great driver of well-being.”

    As we wrote in the intro to the 2021 calendar, we’ve seen success stories emerging during the pandemic that underscore what we have known all along — HR leaders are nimble, creative and passionate.  The calendar is a reflection of gThankYou’s commitment to helping workplace leaders who continue to create loyal workforces and cultures of appreciation, even during a pandemic.
