Why Expressing Gratitude is Important in Business

By February 10, 2014March 6th, 2023Blog, Technology News

Whenever you can, you should express gratitude to your employees and customers. Since your business would simply not be without them, letting them know that they mean something to you is crucial. However, many business owners forgo appreciating their employees because they feel they don’t have anything to offer while their company is still struggling to get off the ground. This is simply not true, as you have a lot to offer even without tons of revenue. Here are a couple of ideas you can take advantage of.

Send a Small Treat

If you know an employee or customer loves chocolate chip cookies, send a treat their way. Maybe someone had a baby or someone has passed away. Send flowers along with your regards. Simple gestures such as these will put even the angriest of clients and employees back in your corner, and you can begin to repair any damage that might have been done in the interim.

Participate in Arbor Day

Tons of companies and individuals participate in Arbor Day, which is a day in which you and your employees plant a treat in honor of someone. The someone you plant the tree in honor of can be your favorite client, a passed love one, or even a beloved pet mascot that your office has. It’s completely up to you!

Do a Half Birthday Gift

If someone’s birthday is January first, give them a half-off a meal or service in July. July would mark their ‘half-birthday,’ and it’s a cute and clever way to let your client or employee know you remember their birthday and appreciate them enough to commemorate the event.
