We write here frequently about the benefits of expressing appreciation to your employees as a means of keeping them engaged, productive and committed to your organization. Today at Kronos, we all got a memo from our CEO, Aron Ain, putting that advice into practice. As is the case with most companies this year, resources have been tight and people have been working even harder than usual to keep our commitments to customers and to each other. The note thanked us for all our hard work and delivered the following thank you gift to each of us:
As a small way to say thank you, we are providing all employees with an “Appreciation Day” to be taken during the months of July or August. We hope you enjoy this additional day off to spend time with your friends and/or family. It’s well deserved!
You won’t be surprised to learn that this memo generated a lot of goodwill at Kronos today. What is your organization doing to thank you and your employees for their efforts?
