You’re a manager. You’re home on Christmas with your family and loved ones. You’ve got all the shifts covered – whew! You can relax, have a cup of cheer and enjoy the festivities.
Great managers remember to honor those individuals whose work gives them the freedom to relax.
Virginia always stops by the building on Christmas day, even for just a few minutes, to say thanks and “Merry Christmas.”
Patty orders in special food, just for the staff, that is available in the break room all day and into the night.
Mandy slips a personal note of thanks and a small gift card into each employee’s locker.
What do you do to show your appreciation for staff who work the holidays? Add your ideas to the comments or email them to me (Sharon@aQuireTraining.com) and I’ll include them in next week’s email.
Today, take just a few minutes to count – out loud, if you can – the things you are thankful for. Don’t forget those staff members whose commitment and dedication make you feel proud to be their manager.
