IndustryWeek | December 29, 2009

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
