Our jobs have become part of our culture. We spend most of ours days here, developing relationships with others from all walks of life. Many of us even develop friendships that exist outside of the work parameters. The companies that we work for, are aware of this. The better companies will offer extracurricular programs through their business in order to nurture these relationships.
A happy worker is often a good one. Corporate holidays and sending Business Holiday Cards are a great way to show appreciation for its workers. What do corporate holidays say about the company that you work for? First, the very existence of corporate holidays shows an appreciation of the group as a whole. It’s a way of saying that the cohesive efforts of everyone have been noticed, and a group reward is deserved. One outstanding company that I worked for, added an extra day to the current Christmas Holiday schedule. It was given via email one week before the Holiday Season.
It really was a gift, and each department was abuzz with excitement. The placement of this Holiday was at the end of the year, and it felt like the company was celebrating a year well done. Outside of money, appreciation is the most sought after reward that employees are after. If your company offers a corporate holidays, be thankful. You work for someone that goes above and beyond to appreciate you.
