If you own a business, you know how hard it can be to meet important milestones. Experiencing growth and success can be especially difficult given the current economy and how competitive businesses are with one another. When you see growth and success, it should be celebrated appropriately to boost employee morale and maintain momentum. So what can you do to celebrate reaching important milestones?
Create a Gift Basket
Employees love receiving gifts. Gifts show employees they have a more meaningful relationship with their employer than something that is strictly work-only. Don’t just pay attention to your on-site employees though. Gift baskets are also great for creating unity in an increasingly remote-based workforce. This is because employees—no matter where they are—will have physical objects and gifts to remind them of the company. Employees may feel more united with the company and their coworkers when they receive a gift basket. They will know that their individual efforts are noticed and appreciated.
Host a Party
A party is a sure way to celebrate any major event, including reaching important company milestones. Employees will be able to celebrate with you and the company. Parties make it easy for everyone to soak in positive vibes and get excited. Not sure how to get everyone pumped? Start with music. Music at your company event can help set the mood. Make sure you choose appropriate and upbeat music if you’re the DJ. If you’re hiring a DJ for your party, clearly communicate your expectations and standards for the music they play.
Giveaways are another great way to get your employees celebrating. Choose to invest in high-quality gifts, not just company paraphernalia. Even if it’s good quality and on the more expensive side, giving away company paraphernalia comes across as cheap and boring. High-quality gifts suggest more thought and effort went towards procuring gifts for the giveaway. Employees will understand that the company is doing well thanks to reaching milestones and has the budget and the desire to get great gifts for giveaways.
As your company continues to grow, your idea of an important milestone will change as well. Milestones may include things like hitting a goal for a certain number of clients or sales within a quarter. Remember, no matter how small or large your business is, it is still crucial to celebrate milestones. Celebrating and recognizing your important milestones can help you reach many more in the future.
