A Small Way To Make A Big Difference To Your Team
It goes without saying that these days it is becoming increasingly difficult to retain the best employees. As a business owner you will be in constant competition with other companies offering similar job roles and of course, if your employees are good at what they do then it isn’t uncommon for them to be scouted or approached by competitors. Due to this, it is imperative that you do all you can to ensure you’re providing the best possible workplace experience.
One simple thing all employers can do is take the time to get to know their employees. This alone will give you the opportunity to show that you care about the people who work for you. Often, it is the small things that make the biggest difference and if you’re looking to add a personal touch in the workplace, remembering important life events goes a long way. Here at the Greetings Card Co, we strongly believe that giving employees cards for these key events is a great way to show that you care. If you’re wondering which events you should provide cards for, keep reading today.
We would consider this to be essential in every workplace, no matter how many members of staff that you have. The least you can do is provide all employees with a card on their birthday and we can’t stress enough how much this will mean to them. It is really easy to bulk buy birthday cards so, there is no excuse for not wishing your employees happy birthday.
This is a big event in anyone’s life and your employees may have even booked time off work to move house so, it would be a really nice gesture to give them a ‘new home’ card when they get their keys. Whilst you may not always be aware of events like this happening in your employees’ lives, if you have been informed then you should try to give them a card.
Weddings and babies
These are other events that your employees will take time off work for and you will always know if they are getting married or having a baby. Both of these events are huge and deserve to be congratulated, so you can guarantee that your employees will really appreciate receiving a card from you at these times.
In some situations and for some companies this may not be appropriate but, if you’re close to your team then you should provide sympathy cards for close losses. These are the types of cards that you could post to your team too so, if they are taking time off then they will know that you’re thinking of them in their absence. It is a great way to show that you care about them and their wellbeing.
Before and after big achievements
Giving both good luck cards and well done cards can be a really nice touch. It doesn’t matter what the achievement may be, whether it is passing a driving test or getting a new qualification, you can guarantee that your employees will appreciate the support and the thought. It is especially important to give these cards if the achievement is work-related and common knowledge in the workplace.
Similarly to birthday cards, you really should give all of your employees Christmas cards, especially if you close the business premises over the festive period. You may find that your employees give cards to one another at this time of year and they may even give you one too so, you don’t want to be in an awkward situation where you don’t reciprocate this. Giving a Christmas card is also a great opportunity for you to thank everyone for their hard work over the year.
Purchasing business greetings cards
Remembering events like those mentioned above really will go a long way with your team and you can trust that the more they feel valued the more they will want to stay at your company. Thankfully, it is both cost-effective and incredibly easy to show your staff how much they mean to you by gifting a card when you turn to the Greetings Card Co.
We are proud to offer a specific business greetings card service. This is specifically designed for employers who would like to order cards in bulk and we even provide generous discounts for companies so, the more you buy the less you pay per card.
