At the end of this year not all companies are feeling jolly. Large holiday gatherings may not be fiscally sound however there are still options for you to show your employees you recognize their support and service. With employees working more for less, here are a few ideas for you to extend a meaningful and sincere end of year thank you for their diligent contributions.
Write Thank-You Letters 
Enlist other supervisors and managers' help to identify the contributions of each employee over the past year. State your appreciation loud and clear in the letter and thank them for hanging in there through a tough year.
Meet and Greet
Arrange for your CEO to walk through every department and shake the hands of everyone in the office. The commitment and authenticity of your leader will come through and his time and personal thanks will go a long way.
Give the Gift of Time
Recognize your outstanding employees with paid time off such as a half or full day off to allow them to spend time with their family and friends or to just relax.
