This day officially comes round once a year but why not celebrate it many
times throughout the year. Employees like to feel their organization

employees with gifts of gratitude or acts of kindness to show their
appreciation. A simple ‘thank-you’ or ‘good job’ can have more impact than

generating creativity, ideas and energy. When projects are complete, sharing

Hungry employees are never productive employees. Provide snacks and
drinks such as fruit, cereal bars, cookies, tea, coffee and water to keep
employees nourished and happy . Place these stations at different locations
on each floor a short distance from work desks and computers. This should
encourage employees to go, take a break and chat with colleagues. They
might not need encouragement when food is brought to the office.
Individual milestones like birthdays, anniversaries, promotions and the arrival
of a new employee are special events. An organization that recognises
personal milestones shows they care about employees as people and not
simply as one of many workers. A gift card with a hand written card from all

instantly with one another. Employees become more engaged when they
have the opportunity to chat, ask questions and seek guidance from in an

demonstrates to the employee’s entire professional network the good job they
are doing at their organization.

Encouraging employees to integrate their interests and hobbies into the
organization’s culture is a great way to encourage individualism and team
building. Tennis and football tournaments help build a healthy, competitive
spirt increasing employee morale and sense of fun. If employees are musical

employees feel good about themselves and about their colleagues.
8.Buddy and Mentors
for New Hires
New employees will perform well when they feel they are a part of the team.
As an organization you want to ensure they are engaged from their first day.
Having a ‘buddy’ or ‘mentor’ to introduce them, show them around the office
and answer questions will instantly help with their introduction to the role.
Ensuring a new hire has a positive first experience will be an influential
factor in their level of engagement over time.
