Volunteers across the country give hundreds of thousands of hours of their time every year… how are you recognizing them? Regardless of whether or not your company or organization relies on volunteers to operate, you use volunteers all the time. Think about that administrative assistant who takes extra work home or takes on “special projects.” Think about the manager who stays late or plans events to better connect with his/her employees. Many employees come in early to spruce up the office by taking out the trash mid-week or bringing in flowers. These are often thankless jobs. Consider an award or gift! This doesn’t have to be expensive.. something as simple as a coffee mug with their name engraved, or a clothing item with the company logo, a picnic set, or bottle of wine are often enough to show your gratitude, and won’t cost you or your company a lot of money! Otherwise, create an incentive program that includes award levels. Check out our website for award ideas!
