National Employee Appreciation DayOn March 6 of this year, employers all across the United States had the opportunity to celebrate how much they valued their employees. The first Friday of March is National Employee Appreciation Day, and for employees, it’s a day of the year that helps them feel valued. This is a day to honor the contributions and hard work of employees across all industries. There may be awards, bonuses, and even gifts. Some suggest that the best way to honor those who work for you is to ask them how they would like to be rewarded for their efforts. If you’re an employer, you might find that the way your staff wants to celebrate the day is far different than what you thought they might like. One way that you can show your employees that you care about them is to recognize when they might be struggling with a substance or alcohol abuse disorder and help them to begin to overcome it in a kind, understanding manner. By being supportive but firm, your influence as a caring employer might be what empowers an individual with an addiction to take steps to attend rehab and get started on the road to a successful recovery. No matter how you choose to celebrate Employee Appreciation Day, remember that even a small gesture can improve morale and productivity for weeks and months to come.
