    Top Ten Ways to Show Appreciation to Employees
    Praise something your coworker has done well. Identify the specific actions that you found admirable.
    Say "thank you." Show your appreciation for their hard work and contributions. And, don't forget to say "please" often as well. Social niceties do belong at work. A more gracious, polite workplace is appreciated by all.
    Ask your coworkers about their family, their hobby, their weekend or a special event they attended. Your genuine interest - as opposed to being nosey – causes people to feel valued and cared about.
    Offer staff members flexible scheduling for the holidays, if feasible. If work coverage is critical, post a calendar so people can balance their time off with that of their coworkers.

    Know your coworker’s interests well enough to present a small gift occasionally. An appreciated gift, and the gesture of providing it, will light up your coworker’s day.
    If you can afford to, give staff money. End of the year bonuses, attendance bonuses, quarterly bonuses and gift certificates say "thank you" quite nicely. TechSmith staff receive a percentage of their annual salary for their end of year bonus.
    Almost everyone appreciates food. Take coworkers or staff to lunch for a birthday, a special occasion or for no reason at all. Let your guest pick the restaurant.
    Create a fun tradition for a seasonal holiday. ReCellular employees draw names for their Secret Santa gift exchange. Alison Doyle, About's Guide to Job Searching, also works in Career Services at Skidmore College where they do a "gift grab" at their holiday party.

    LuAnn Johnson who works in Human Resources at the Schaller Anderson Mercy Care Plan says, "We celebrate Treat Tuesday, every Tuesday between Thanksgiving and Christmas. We match up departments or people who don't normally work together as a unit and assign a day to provide gooey, healthy or scrumptious treats for the other groups. It's a great mixer, an opportunity to show off our culinary skills and a morale builder - to say nothing of the sugar high!"
    Bring in bagels, doughnuts or another treat for staff and coworkers. Offerings such as cookies or cupcakes, that you've baked personally, are a huge hit. (Have you tried baking cupcakes in ice cream cones? People love them.) Another hit? Bring chocolate - chocolate anything.
    Last, but not least, provide opportunity. People want chances for training and cross-training. They want to participate on a special committee where their talents are noticed. They like to attend professional association meetings and represent your organization at civic and philanthropic events.

    Here are my suggestions and most of them wouldn't cost you a dime:
    Give them flexible hours
    Provide free pass (movie pass)
    provide the best coffee in the office
    Have a wall of fame
    Announce an employee's great job
    Give the worker his own parking lot
    Ask them what they want

      Re: How to Show Appreciation to Employees

      I owned a recruiting firm for 25 years and I can promise you that what employees want most is: to feel heard (even if you don't take their ideas and implement), to feel like they have opportunities for growth and advancement (whether it's new skill acquisition or promotional opportunities) and to feel like they are part of something, not just another asset such as a chair or table that is disposable.

                      Re: How to Show Appreciation to Employees

                      Public thanks to the excellent work done can go a long way to enable employees to feel the appreciation. This may be recognized in an event, a letter of thanks, the employees' monthly awards or articles in trade magazines, to recognize the special efforts. E-mail sent to all staff of the Chief Executive Officer, also effective because it publicly thank the employees of their contribution. Written communication is beneficial because it provides something to add to its portfolio of the employee.
