    potluck

    Pre-Holiday Potluck. Invite everyone to bring a favorite dish to share, along with a recipe card so people can take photos and add new items to their holiday dinner menus. When the meal begins, ask leaders to kick off a roundtable discussion about what they’re grateful for and why.

     

    Thank You Wall. Start a workplace tradition by dedicating a window or whiteboard to a collection of heartfelt messages. Supply colorful sticky notes and Sharpie pens. Ask employees to post at least 3 messages about anything or anyone they appreciate. Soon, the wall will be filled with a rainbow of positive energy that will brighten spirits.

     

    Silent Auction for Charity. Give employees a chance to give back by leveraging fundraising strength from across your organization. Vote on a local program to support. Coordinate an online auction of goods and services contributed by individual employees. Low-cost online software solutions like BiddingOwl make it easy to manage.

     

    Help each other. Nominate coworkers who could benefit from assistance with fall projects. Then let individuals or teams sign up to rake leaves, clean gutters, buy groceries, deliver a home-cooked meal or decorate team members’ front doors.

     

    Give away fall flowers or plants that staff can take home for the holidays. For remote workers, arrange delivery or pick at a nearby Home Depot or nursery.

     

    Winter Wonderland Virtual Photo Booth. Make it easy with backgrounds and a full-featured app like Snapbar. Or roll out your own on your meeting platform. Post images on the event chat board. Build an album to share at the party and beyond.

Ask everyone to post photos and vote for the online winner. Want guidance? Check specialists like Gingerbread Wars.

     

    Holiday Bingo. Search online for holiday Bingo boards to send with invitations. Choose a coveted prize and announce it in advance, so everyone will be excited to participate.

     

    Cookie Exchange. For an in-person party, be sure to note in invitations how many cookies to bring, so everyone can swap, taste and vote for their favorites. Prepare a special display table with signage for cookie and baker names. Order decorative boxes in advance so participants have a festive way to pack up their selections. And don’t forget to post all the recipes online!

  • Gratitude First: Celebrating Thanksgiving at Work

    Millions of Americans will work on Thanksgiving.

    Will employees at your company be spending Thanksgiving at work? If so, bring the gratitude (and treats) and make it a workplace celebration they’ll appreciate!

    Spending the holiday at work isn’t where most of us want to be for this traditional at-home celebration. But with the right attitude and activities, sharing Thanksgiving with colleagues is an opportunity to highlight workplace gratitude and celebrate your work family.

    If your company has employees spending Thanksgiving in the office, now’s your chance to plan ahead and make it a celebration of success, teamwork and gratitude! Consider providing a meal, gift certificates, thank you notes and a positive environment full of appreciation.

    Make Gratitude Your #1 Priority for Thanksgiving at Work

    “Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.” — William Arthur Ward

    Employees in retail, law enforcement, health care, travel, utilities, freight, news and other industries all keep working through the holidays. And although they’re not alone, it’s crucial to let each employee know how much you appreciate their dedication and hard work by coming in on a holiday.

    Whatever else you do to celebrate Thanksgiving at work — gifts, a communal potluck, or a catered turkey feast — gratitude comes first. A Thanksgiving gift or activity shared without gratitude is apt to feel shallow and impersonal.

    Clearly expressed appreciation from company leadership is key. Employees will notice if managers and other leaders are truly appreciative of their sacrifice to work on a holiday.

    A note of gratitude from the company CEO can make all the difference — and it doesn’t have to be big production. A simple acknowledgement and “thank you” is the right place to start. If budget allows, a gift or complimentary Thanksgiving meal is a great way to reinforce this message of gratitude.

  • Celebrating Teams and Organizational Values

    Spikeball Players Celebrating Teams

    Photo by Spikeball on Unsplash

    When leaders understand the importance of celebrating teams and organizational values, important messages resonate beyond an “event.” There are many opportunities to bring people together to underscore that your business is about people and values, not just work and the bottom line.

    We’re in a time of heightened pressure to recruit and retain happy, committed employees and this big-picture thinking is critical. Here are a wide variety of ways you can incorporate “celebrating teams and organizational values” into your workplace. We hope this sparks inspiration for gifts of connection, belonging and shared joy.

    Give the Gift of Connection

    • Welcome new employees with a memorable first impression. Schedule coffee or lunch with the head of the company on their first day at work.
    • Plan a field trip to tour the facilities of a supplier or client, so staff can learn more about partner businesses while strengthening team relationships.
    • Organize casual group activities before, during or after work – walking, frisbee, lawn games (like Spikeball, pictured above), badminton, softball.
    • Bring teams together over food! 60% of employees say they feel more valued and appreciated when employers provide meals. A few ideas:
      • Coordinate a series of in-person and virtual lunches to build relationships between unfamiliar teams. Deliver meals or send prepaid grocery certificates in advance to remote employees.
      • Cater monthly “Ask Me Anything” hybrid lunches, featuring a series of senior leaders.
      • Host virtual cooking lessons. Hire a pro chef or ask talented employees to teach their favorite recipes, while participants follow along or just watch all the action.

    Give the Gift of Belonging

    “Belonging” is more than a buzzword. It’s building a culture where people feel welcome to be themselves and thrive. It takes work to foster a sense of belonging and worth every ounce of effort. Here are some ideas to help as you plan periodic events where employees are free to mingle and strengthen team relationships.

    • Create a “peer hero” recognition program, where anyone can recommend a deserving colleague or team at any time. Each quarter, publish a “recognition roll call” to share nominee stories. Then, everyone votes for the winner of a high-value prize.
    • Involve everyone in long-term organizational planning. Host a quarterly meeting where leaders discuss key issues and the road ahead. Solicit staff ideas and feedback to build trust, enthusiasm and buy-in.
    • Actively invite and encourage people to participate in a variety of activities — and consistently ask for new ideas from everyone.
    • Audit what kinds of programs and activities exist with a lens of diversity and inclusion.

    Give the Gift of Shared Joy

    Friendships and unique bonds are created when people find joy and happiness with each other. We aren’t talking about “forced fun”, but embracing ways to bring people together beyond work-related meetings. Here are some ideas:

    • To foster camaraderie, plan an online scavenger hunt or board game tournament. Build on digital versions of Monopoly or Settlers of Catan, or design your own Trivial Pursuit game based on company history and employee facts.
    • Host in-person and/or digital activities that bring people together to share common interests in real-time.
      • Watch parties for popular movies or tv shows
      • Game-day spectator huddles
      • Book clubs
    • Help your team bond through engaging digital games from specialized services like JAM, which offers a variety of popular options like Escape Rooms, Office Olympics, and Jeoparty!
    • Looking for an engaging virtual event or team-building experience, but overwhelmed by all the options? Let an online concierge help you make the best pick. For example, a guide can help you navigate the vast collection of virtual events at reELIVATE.
    • Connect(or reconnect) offsite for face-to-face group activities:

     

    When celebrating teams and organizational values, remember that there is a larger message. Let your actions speak louder than words: YOU BELONG HERE. We care about you! We are a team and we are stronger together.

    It’s almost spring and Easter will be here soon! Now’s the time to start your Easter employee appreciation planning.

    Why thank employees at Easter?
    Besides being a widely celebrated family occasion, it’s a springtime holiday with cultural, non-religious traditions that appeal to everyone.

    Easter employee appreciation is a great idea, regardless of employee religious affiliation, because it generally marks the beginning of spring and the sense of renewal and gratitude that accompany the new season.
    And, as is often the case, Easter coincides with Passover.

    In a diverse workplace where the majority of employees may not be Christian, focus on the secular aspects of Easter. Put employee accomplishments and community first!

    Read on for five reasons to include Easter employee appreciation in your spring planning this year.

    Merry Christmas and thank you! In the spirit of the holidays, it is fitting to share our gratitude with you.

    We are passionate about the act of gratitude being a year-long commitment, but this time of year is always a little special. We have watched workplaces transform, leaders completely change direction, employees step up, and much more.

    We have published a wide variety of blogs and resources this year and hope they have been helpful.

    We have partnered with a wide variety of organizations to provide Gift Certificates that have filled the tables, fridges and pantries of people across the country.

    We hope to offer inspiration as you build and maintain a culture of gratitude in your world – big or small.

    We wish you a very Merry Christmas, full of cheer, warmth, happiness and gratitude. Thank you for your business, support, friendship and camaraderie.

    The Shortest Day by Susan Cooper

    So the shortest day came, and the year died,
    And everywhere down the centuries of the snow-white world
    Came people singing, dancing,
    To drive the dark away.
    They lighted candles in the winter trees;
    They hung their homes with evergreen;
    They burned beseeching fires all night long
    To keep the year alive,
    And when the new year’s sunshine blazed awake
    They shouted, reveling.
    Through all the frosty ages you can hear them
    Echoing behind us—Listen!!
    All the long echoes sing the same delight,
    This shortest day,
    As promise wakens in the sleeping land:
    They carol, feast, give thanks,
    And dearly love their friends,
    And hope for peace.
    And so do we, here, now,
    This year and every year.
    Welcome Yule!

    Savor and enjoy every moment!

    Our deepest gratitude,
    Your Friends at gThankYou

    What stores accept gThankYou Certificates?

    Virtually all major U.S. grocery chains that take Manufacturer Coupons honor gThankYou Certificates. The only stores that do not honor Manufacturer Coupons are Sam’s, Costco, Aldi and specialty stores such as HoneyBaked. We do not recommend redeeming your Certificate at general merchandise stores such as Wal-Mart, Target or Dollar stores at this time.

    How to shop at a store that doesn’t honor Manufacturer Coupons.

    If you prefer to shop at a store that does not honor Manufacturer Coupons gThankYou can directly redeem your Coupon.

    Simply mail your Certificate and store receipt for qualifying merchandise to gThankYou and we will quickly reimburse you with a check. We can also reimburse you if you prefer to do delivery or curbside pick-up!

    For mail-in reimbursement address and instructions, text “return” to 888-222-9054.
