The Effect of Celebrating Birthdays for Rehab Center Employees
One of the most powerful motivators for employees is recognition and feeling valued. When employees feel valued, it helps reduce turnover and increases morale among the team.
Celebrating employee birthdays is a way to recognize each member of your team in a way that is independent from their work performance. While celebrating milestones for your rehab center is important, this approach fails to focus on one person at a time.
Employee birthday celebration ideas
Here is a list of ways you can celebrate employee birthdays:
Have a birthday lunch out
Order in food
Offer an Airbnb staycation
Have a potluck
Offer a day off
Have birthday cake in the office and sing happy birthday
Provide vouchers or gift cards
Have all employees sign a card
Donate on their behalf
Decorate the office or workspace
Importance of celebrating employee birthdays
Recognition: Being recognized and celebrating shows employees you pay attention and value their presence. It helps to show that you take an interest in your team and provides a platform to recognize each individual person.
Morale: Feeling appreciated and recognized helps improve employee attitudes and morale. When a workplace has high morale, employees are more likely to remain in their roles and work effectively.
Motivation: Celebrations in the workplace helps to keep employees motivated. Taking a break from the usual workday can help recharge the team.
Team building: Having a celebration can help create a sense of unity among the team. It also provides them with an opportunity to get to know each other beyond their work duties and roles.
Idea: Instead of celebrating employee birthdays, consider celebrating work anniversaries. This can keep the celebrations specific to the individual in a more work-focused way.
Tip: To help you track and celebrate birthdays, enter all employee birthdays in your company calendar so you can receive notifications and plan accordingly.
