It is so easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle everyday life, especially while at work. Even if you love your job, heading to work every day can be tiresome, work can be too stressful, and it can even become a mundane task that an employee begins to dread. That is exactly what we would like to help you avoid.
Employee appreciation is a powerful and underrated tool that companies and workplaces should be utilizing. Those employees literally make the world go ‘round, so here is why and how you should be expressing your appreciation.
Make a big deal out of it
We’re not talking about forwarding an email to your entire team “just to say thanks.” — While yes, that is something that you should be in a habit of doing, we mean something with a little more gusto. Think about planning an annual event just for your employees to show them how much their hard work means to you, their superiors, and the company. We are literally the ideal location for an event to show appreciation for your employees. At Stokely Event Center, we are set up to cater to large groups of people and have plenty of space. This means your invitation could extend to include the spouses or plus ones of your workers.
Make it fun
Our space is equipped with a state of the art sound system, ready to liven up your team and show them that this is an event to forget the stresses of the job, enjoy their time, and realize your true appreciation for the contribution that they make to your company every day. Also, consider live entertainment to play during your event. Having a live band adds a different sort of energy to a space and it’s a great way to show your employees that you’ve really thought about this event and put effort into making it fun. Apart from the sound system, we’ve got games. From Corn Hole and Giant Jenga to Ping Pong tables, our event center is perfect for a gathering of this type.
Make it about them
Be sure to set aside a specific few minutes during your event to voice your appreciation for your employees. This event is about showing them with your actions, but hearing it come from your lips means the world. An employee that knows that they are loved and appreciated, is a happy and efficient one. Consider employee appreciation gifts. From gift cards placed at each seat to something a little more involved, there are plenty of options you could consider. Things like the option of a monthly subscription box, or a long lunch here and there are just a few ideas.
Stop by and schedule a date for your employee appreciation event. It only takes 10 minutes to look around, see that Stokely Event Center is the perfect location for your shindig, and make it official. From set up to clean up at the end of the night, our team is ready to help you show yours how much you appreciate them.
