If you are working in a large law office then you know that there are many amazing people that make your job easier thanks to the work that they do. It can be easy to forget all of their amazing accomplishments with all of the hustle of work commitments, but finding a way to recognize your employees is a great way to build morale and show that you value their hard work. There are a few different ways that you can do this, but it really comes down to the thought that counts.
The first way that you can show your appreciation is to give some sort of gift to your employees. If you want, you can tie these gifts to specific days. For instance, Secretary’s Day is the perfect time to get all of the secretaries in your office Shari’s Berries. You could also use the holiday season as a time to hand out holiday bonuses, or get creative with secret santa programs. Similarly, you do not have to wait until specific times to reward your employees, surprise gifts and recognition always go a long way. A random day off after months of hard work can be more than enough for some employees to feel valued.

If you have a larger company, you could opt for a cheaper option like renting out a space at a public park. This will give you plenty of room, while still allowing your employees to bring family with to celebrate.
Finally, you don’t always have to make employee recognition a big deal. There is plenty that you can do regularly to celebrate your employees. You can create a weekly email that highlights the accomplishments of your staff and send it out. Employee of the month and quarter awards are also good ways to recognize success.
