Little Things Count. They Count a Lot.Posted: June 16, 2013
I remember one of the most delightful surprises I received at the office was a handwritten birthday card from a very high level manager I associated with rarely. It was waiting on my desk before I arrived in the office that day. Such a simple gesture, but one that really showed a lot of warmth. It certainly brightened my day.
Since then, I always put all employee birthdays into my calendar and make sure to wish them a happy birthday. This is also a great practice on days special to your employees like Veteran’s Day, Mother’s Day, or Father’s Day.
It’s the little things and the personal touches that help build a stronger connection with those you work with outside of just the jobs at hand.
