Hopefully it has been a very busy and profitable holiday season for your business so far and your employees have proven to be real assets! Showing employee appreciation can help keep your workers motivated during long hours and busy schedules. Tokens of appreciation are important all year long, not just during the holiday season. Workers who feel valued by their employers tend to “buy into” the business and push hard to make the business successful. If the holiday season is a profitable one for you, it may be simple to throw a party or give some gifts. However, if the holidays are slow time for your business, the last priority may be to find money for a party. Difficult times, such as a loss of a large account, may be the time when your employees would most benefit from shows of appreciation to keep them motivated and get the business back on track. So what can you do if funds are low? Turn to National Business Capital for a business loan or line of credit!
Your employees are one of your most valuable business assets and it is important to invest in them. As a business owner, your immediate thought may not turn to financing to give gifts to your employees. Think of it this way. If you have a tool that is necessary to do your business, like a lawn mower for a landscaper, no matter what your financial situation you will find a way to keep it in good repair. Well, your employees are your most valuable tools! Without them, none of your other tools can function. Showing appreciation during good times and bad, will help keep your employees running smoothly and working at their optimal performance level for you.

- Cater lunch in the office and extend the time given for lunch.
- End the work day early and treat your employees to happy hour.
- Provide breakfast in the office.
- Offer benefits during lunch hours such as massage, yoga, or nutritional education.
- Give gift cards to movie theaters so they can enjoy with family or friends.
