Have you downloaded gThankYou’s free Employee Appreciation Calendar yet? A summer chock-full of employee appreciation activities is your buffer against seasonal disengagement!
The rising temperatures and increased distractions of summer have an inescapable impact on employee attention.
Nobody wants to be like Gary Lumbergh, the despised Office Space boss who tells his employees to “go ahead and come in” Saturday (and Sunday), but what do you do on Friday afternoons when you can practically see employee motivation wafting away in the summer breeze?
The trick is to work with summertime distractions, not against them.
“From an HR professional’s perspective, summer provides a golden opportunity to mix up the workplace routine by providing unfettered access to outdoor activities — something not always available during other seasons,” Paul Falcone, HR exec and best-selling author, writes for SHRM.
Fun summer holidays like Say Something Nice Day, 4th of July, National Ice Cream Day and Labor Day are an opportunity to enjoy the season together and build on everyday employee appreciation goals. Everyone enjoys an afternoon break for an ice cream party, outdoor games or an all-family picnic. There are loads of easy, affordable ways to engage with employees and make them feel valued.
HR initiatives like employee appreciation are not a “nice to have” bonus — they are strategic. But a recent study shows organizations still don’t view HR as a strategic contributor, despite the proven success of these contributions.
Now’s the time to put a plan into place and make sure your team’s strategy is as seamless as possible!
