1. 🧢 Send them goodies and swag

There's nothing quite like a surprise gift to show your employees how much you appreciate them.

A hot item we've recently seen making waves are custom award plaques. They can keep these on their desks as a reminder of how awesome they are! You can create your own and get them here: https://www.staats.shop/enterprise

You can't go wrong with oh-so-soft fuzzy socks and t-shirts either! Even better, send them a whole swag box! You can find all-in-one swag boxes here: https://www.swagup.com

2. 👏 Celebrate their recent achievements

Since last year's been pretty tough, it's easy to forget just how much you all have achieved together. Get the team together for a virtual Happy Hour and start it off by celebrating the team's achievements! While you're at it, send them a gift card so they can buy drinks and snacks for the Happy Hour!

3. 🏓 Play a Fun Fact Trivia together

You may want to celebrate the uniqueness each individual brings to the team as well! You can play a Fun Fact Trivia with the team. Not only will this get the team together, but they'll also be learning about each other in a fun and engaging way!

4. 💬 Schedule a 1-1 conversation

Seriously, just do it! Remote work has made some of us feel a little disconnected and isolated. Set aside some time to have coffee chats with your employees and remind them why you're so grateful for them! Gratitude goes a long way!

Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.
