Valentine's Day Cards from the Boss
A great touch by the boss this year on Valentine's Day is to give personalized cards to the employees. Not gift cards (unless you can, and in that case online Amazon cards are perfect), but actual hand made greeting cards. A recent study named "praise" as the most desired thing that college students want. Although it was a study on college students, the results show an increasing desire by people to be appreciated and have an interaction that positively raises self esteem. Using this information, the best thing a boss can do on Valentine's Day is write a personal note to his employees. The greeting card or valentine does not have to be fancy, just real and tangible. With a tough economy and many folks under hard times, words of graciousness from the boss goes a long way. Give praise and appreciate employees. Sometimes bosses need prompting from office managers, secretaries, and administrative assistant. Help the boss prepare a valentine for the employees, especially if gratitude is lacking in the office.
