New Options For Your Employee Appreciation Day

Employee Appreciation Day is a great way for businesses to thank their employees for all of their hard work, especially during difficult times. At Virgin Incentives, while we feel that organisations should recognise efforts throughout the whole year, it’s a good reminder to express gratitude for all of the accomplishments of your team and to recognise those that make a positive difference in the organisation. Here are some new options for your Employee Appreciation Day celebration within your organisation….

Recognising, appreciating, and celebrating your people is even more crucial when it comes to retaining and searching for talent. Whether you’re seeking inspiration or a refresh on how to recognise your team, we’ve got you covered. 

Evidence shows that recognition is the most important driver of employee engagement and great work, but should also be given in a timely manner to ensure meaningfulness for the employee. Employee Appreciation Day serves as a reminder of the power of employee reward and recognition. To make things nice and easy, we’ve put together some fantastic ideas to help you recognise your people on Employee Appreciation Day and of course, throughout the year. We hope you’ll find some inspiration to help attract, engage, and keep your employees satisfied and get Employee Appreciation Day right.

Affordable but fantastic employee rewards

It’s essential to find ways to engage and motivate your team members, even if you have a smaller budget. Our Leisure Vouchers Gift Card is a flexible and affordable option for employee rewards.

With lots of everyday brands such as Premier Inn, Away Resorts, Alton Towers, Harvester, Laithwaite’s Wine, Halfords, American Golf and many more fantastic brands. Simply load from £5 – £130 to gift your people access to over 5000 UK locations.
