Free Templates for Corporate Thank You Cards: Employee Appreciation Day

Are you a Bill Lumbergh from “Office Space” or a Michael Scott from “The Office”? Telling your employees thank you once in a while with GOOD pizza (from Alfredo’s Pizza Café if you’re in Scranton) might help them be more productive and less likely to burn down the building à la Milton style.

You’re in luck! The first Friday in March is especially dedicated to celebrating Employee Appreciation Day. On this day, bosses are encouraged to recognize efforts and strengthen bonds in the office. Studies show that expressing employee appreciation boosts self-esteem, trust levels, performance levels and retention rates, among other benefits.

Praising staff for a job well done creates a positive company culture that translates to increased productivity and a sense of ownership in one’s work. Motivated employees who feel respected and appreciated by employers are happy to go to work every day, leading to a satisfying work-life balance.

Although Employee Appreciation Day comes around once a year, nurturing a positive environment is a win-win that can and should be acknowledged year-round with inexpensive corporate thank you cards that will have your employees beaming with pride.
