Naperville Business Lawyer Encourages Employee Appreciation During the Holidays

appreciation, Naperville business law attorneyWhere would your business be without the contributions of your loyal employees? If something happened to your staff, would you be able to go out and hire a new team capable of doing what your current employees do for your company and your customers? Probably not.

While I am proud of my accomplishments as a business attorney, I am also a business owner who relies on a wonderful staff to help me meet the needs of our clients every day. I recognize and appreciate the dedication of my employees and am proud to work with such an inspiring group of people. You likely feel the same way about your team, and the winter holiday season is the perfect time for you to show your gratitude. Let’s look at some ways that you could do so.

Flexible Scheduling

The Christmas season is notorious for the various demands it places on a person’s time. Between travel, shopping, children’s holiday pageants and concerts, and family celebrations, it can be nearly impossible to find the time to do it all. If your business climate allows for it, offer your employees some flexibility regarding their work. Let them come in early or stay late to make up for missed time, or simply give them an extra afternoon off.

Holiday (or Post-Holiday) Celebrations

The work Christmas party is a long-standing tradition at many companies, and you may consider putting one together for your staff. Encourage your team to attend an after-hours party or celebrate during the work day with a catered lunch. If you work in an industry that is simply too busy this time of year, postpone your holiday party until a slower period, but continue to foster your attitude of appreciation.

Tokens of Gratitude

Depending upon the size of your team, consider getting them each a reasonable gift. Gift cards for restaurants or coffee shops often work well for staff gifts, but you may wish to find something more personal for each member of your team. Along with each gift, include a heartfelt note expressing your appreciation for that person’s effort during the year.

No matter what holidays you choose to recognize and celebrate, showing your gratitude to your staff is always appropriate. When your employees feel appreciated, they are likely to be happier and far more productive.
