SOURCES FOR EMPLOYEE APPRECIATION

EMPLOYEE APPRECIATION COMES FROM FOUR DIFFERENT DESIRES

DESIRE TO HELP THE COMPANY OVERALL

This comes from the pride of association with the company as well as enhancing the personal relationship that they have with the company. After all, if they love the company tey are more inclined to want to help it achieve the success. Thus the company should show the staff the recognition and act in a style representative of something they can take pride in.

DESIRE FOR PERSONAL SUCCESS

If they feel that they will be able to participate in success, or will be rewarded for hard work, the worker is motivated to try harder. After all, the harder they work, the more they get. Thus having the company recognize good behavior and rewarding that behavior can achieve this goal.

DESIRE FOR TO HELP FELLOW WORKERS

If failure results in poor conditions for their comrades, or if success will prevent negative results, such as layoff or salary decreases, then employee motivation can result from a desire to help those he or she works with. Having an employee appreciation event that enhances the bonding of the staff can enhance this sense.

DESIRE FOR PRIDE IN A JOB WELL DONE

This can include the more practical aspects of looking at a job as way of showing off their capabilities which can result in promotion or job opportunities elsewhere. Though this may indicate an innate dissatisfaction with the status quo, it can result in an increase in productivity in the short-term and may enhance job satisfaction in the long-term. Having an employee appreciation event that recognizes individual achievement achieves this goal.

OUR GREEN COMMITMENT While ultimately we serve our clients in the way that they require, we work hard to reduce the carbon footprint of any event. We recycle, utilize local talent when preferable, and look to leave places better than we found them. When we do travel, we take pains to reduce our impact on the environment.

LITTLE THINGS MEAN A LOT

SMALL WAYS FOR EXECUTIVES TO ALSO SHOW APPRECIATION

  • SWAG BAGS - help them to show their loyalty to your brand by letting them wear shirts, hats, and the like. If appropriate, maybe samples of your products could be beneficial. If given at the end, it's a way to send them off on a high note and not that you are kicking them out.
  • PERSONALIZED NOTES - small things letting them know that they are still individuals and appreciated for themselves. Maybe the note can recognize a specific idea or other contribution to the company. It can go a long way to making them realize that they are being seen and remembered.
  • PHOTO OPS - have a picture taken together with executives. Possibly use a backdrop that is of interest or shows your company. If you need a visualization, think about the red carpet at the Oscars and how they take pictures in front of backdrops that are related to sponsors of the event. Follow it up by personally signing the photo and sending it framed as a keepsake.
  • HAVE SOME ONE ON ONE TIME - make sure to have the opportunity to speak individually with the employees, or at least the managers, to let them know you appreciate them. Let them also know that you want them to relay your message to their team.
  • SHARE SOMETHING PERSONAL - let them see the human side of you so that you are more than just an executive. The more they can relate with you the more that a level of trust can be built. Feeling like they are working for someone as opposed to a company can help solidify organizational loyalty.

grateful

We provide entertainment for employee appreciation events throughout the United States, and even beyond! Wherever you might be along the Atlantic Coast, the MidWest, the South, the West Coast, or anywhere else, we stand ready to help your group to have fun. This includes in the big cities, the suburbs, or further outside the urban areas. We do not provide the food or the venue. We come to you and help you have a great time!

food venue

WE COME TO YOU!
We work with groups that are small, medium and large. We also work with people that are in the city, the suburbs, and that are in more rural areas. It never made sense to get our own facilities. We come to a venue of your choosing and this allows you to make your own food and beverage options. In general, you want enough light to see, enough space to move around comfortably, and it should be quiet enough to hear. Everything else can be adjusted to.

WHAT WE NEED TO KNOW

1

WHAT IS THE REASON?

The first step is to determine your needs. This includes potential goals, desires and concerns. The more we know about what has already been decided can allow us to narrow the conversation to approaches that interest you.

2

WHAT ARE THE DETAILS? WHERE? WHEN? HOW MANY?

We need to know the city where the event will be as well as what kind of venue might be used. A date, or date range, for when you would like to have this and what time frame you are looking for will help to determine our commitment and availability. Knowing the size of your group, though that will likely just be an estimate, will allow us to choose appropriate options and have a better feel for the resources required.

3

DO YOU HAVE A BUDGET?

If you know budget limitations, that can allow us to restrict the conversations to those options that will be within your financial constraints. This works in both directions. We don't want to overbuild and propose options that can't be done. Also, we don't want to provide less than we could realizing the resources that could be made available to better achieve your goals.
