Employee Appreciation Day is March 1!

Employee Appreciation Day is March 1!

Employee Appreciation Day is around the corner. It's that special day when we take a moment to show some love to the heart and soul of employees!

National Employee Appreciation Day falls on the first Friday of March, and this year, we'll be celebrating on March 1st. Created in 1995 by Dr. Bob Nelson, this day is all about recognizing the incredible contributions each employee makes to its workplace.

At PlumTree, we believe in appreciating our awesome team every single day, but Employee Appreciation Day gives you a chance to go above and beyond! Studies show that 54% of employees leave their jobs because they don't feel valued. This day is a way of saying, "We see you, we appreciate you, and we're grateful for everything you do."

It's not just about gratitude; it's about fostering connections and building a sense of belonging. Regardless of an employee’s role, this day celebrates your employees and brings everyone together for a shared moment of appreciation.

So, how can you celebrate? Why not start with a kick off the day with a company-wide meeting, sharing a heartfelt thanks and celebrating the wins of the past year. And for that extra personal touch, the leadership team could express its gratitude for the team’s hard work. 

Want to go a step further? A thoughtful gift will always be appreciated. We believe in making it personal, so while a nod to your brand can be nice, the focus here is on appreciation.

This Employee Appreciation Day, get ready for a gift box filled with carefully chosen products worth around $60 per person—2–3 high-quality items that reflect the valued individuals your employees are.
