When It Comes to Your Team, What Are You Thankful For?

November 21st, 2016

Being a manager certainly isn’t easy, but you’re fortunate enough to lead a really fantastic team of people. Together you’ve achieved so much this year, so it’s exciting to think of what’s to come in the future.

‘Tis the season to count your blessings and reflect on what you’re most thankful for in life, so don’t forget your fantastic employees. Take the time to ponder why you’re so grateful to have these amazing professionals on your team, then let them know they’re truly valued.

Three Ways to Thank Your Team For Being Amazing

There’s plenty of ways to show gratitude to your employees for being wonderful to work with, so choose the route you think will be the most meaningful to them.

Write a Note

Put pen to paper and write each of your staffers a message acknowledging their hard work this year. Include a few specific ways each person contributed to the team’s success and why you’re so thankful to have them on staff. These days, it’s rare for anyone to take the time to handwrite a note, so this simple gesture alone will mean a lot. You can be certain your employees will save this special thank you card for years to come.

Say It Face-to-Face

Schedule one-on-one time with each of your employees to shower them with praise for a job well done this year. Holding sessions on an individual basis instead of addressing the group as a whole is much more meaningful, because you can personalize the discussion for each employee. Make the entire meeting a positive one, focusing only on the reasons the person made you exceptionally proud this past year.

Give a Reward

Show appreciation for the outstanding people on your team by doing something special for them. From granting everyone an extra day off during the holiday season to taking the team out to lunch, there’s meaningful ways to say thank you that fit every budget. Remember to acknowledge the hard work they’ve done this year and let them know this reward is your way of showing gratitude.
