5 Ways to Celebrate Employee Appreciation Day

February 23, 2022

 

Mark your calendars: Employee Appreciation Day is Friday, March 4th. And while employees should be celebrated year-round, the holiday is the perfect opportunity to show your team how much they matter. Not only is showing appreciation a nice thing to do, but it also provides more benefits than most companies realize. From increased motivation in the short-term to heightened loyalty in the long-term, a culture that recognizes its employees has a substantial impact on that company’s ability to thrive. And after another year of uncertainty, it’s more important than ever for companies to show some extra gratitude. Whether your team is working on an in-person, virtual or hybrid schedule, we’ve rounded up some of our most effective ways to thank the rockstars who make it all happen.

Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream

Treat your team to a mystical, creamy dessert whipped up right before their eyes. Using liquid nitrogen in the recipe, a cool fog billows out of the mixer as the ice cream is made. Since the dessert can be made in a matter of moments, team members can customize their own flavor on the spot.

Social Hour

For those who are working remotely, reimagine after work happy hour with this pub-themed virtual event, featuring a variety of lighthearted mini-games. Once coworkers are split into groups, they will go head-to-head in Fun Fact Matching, Pub Trivia, Buzz-In Challenges and Pictionary. All games are fully integrated into the platform for a seamless experience.

Photo Mosaic Wall

Celebrate your team with a custom mosaic everyone can be part of. Whether you’re snapping a photo from the office or taking a selfie from home, the photo you submit is entirely up to you! Once the photo is posted using a custom hashtag, it will automatically be printed and added to the mosaic in real time by an onsite attendant. Once the activation is complete, a mosaic combining all submissions will be revealed physically and digitally for use in social media, marketing materials, or even your office.

Urban Hoops

Slam dunk your Employee Appreciation Day with Urban Hoops, a four-player city inspired basketball game gone high-tech. Featuring a custom leaderboard and two game modes, coworkers can break into teams or compete individually.

Giant Pac Man Battle

Battle it out in a giant (and highly addictive) version of Pac Man, prompting up to four coworkers to eat their opponents! Like the classic game, players can score points with fruits and power pellets and lose by running into ghosts. After the last Pac Man remains, a leaderboard appears for the ultimate bragging rights.
