Employee Appreciation Day is coming up this Friday, so I'd like to take a moment to talk to all the bosses out there.
You heard me, peons; we need to discuss how to make you feel appreciated, so scram. Go on.
Are they gone? Just the employers here? Good.
Ok, guys here's the deal: we all know the BEST way to make people feel appreciated is to pay them well, provide excellent benefits, and allow them plenty of time off to spend with their families.
But, luckily for you, cake works just as well.
Single your people out from time to time with a spontaneous compliment. If you can't think of one, just copy a line from the "strengths" column of their last performance review:
And don't worry; if you screw it up we both know your intern will just get blamed.
As with the home, the workplace can sometimes experience disagreements and strife. At times like these, it's helpful to remember that nothing diffuses a tense contract or labor union dispute quite like a little humor:
Though they may say otherwise, sometimes your employees don't want you to fix their problem; they just want your validation and sympathy.
And finally, when one of your work family moves on to another company, always be sure to part ways with good grace and affection:
Thanks to today's workers Allison O., Sala C., Brittany K., Gary W., Matt I., Bethany H., Jennifer P., & Beth H., who all have profigency in wreckporting.
