Dear Khyati

It is nice idea to celebrate the birth day of employee on his or her birthday. It is needless to say as it brings the self of belongingness among all employees if we celebrate birth day function for all employees as and when their birthday falls . Being an HR professional we are having the data of date of births of employees in our service records.

In some of the organizations the expenses incurred in connection with birthday celebrations is being born by the management. However, in some of the organizations where the management is not contributing for such type of celebrations, the employees association are contributing. In such a case being an HR professional we have to make the management to aware of the importance of celebrating such functions within the organization in order to keep up morale, satisfaction and self of belongingness among all employees whose contribution is essential to attain the common goals of the organization.


As all we know that we are spending at about 8- 10 hours in a day in attending office work and having many friends among our colleagues, bosses and subordinates within the organization.

So, being an employee if our birth day is celebrated by our colleagues and co-employees it gives a lot of pleasure and happiness for which we cannot term it as in the terms of monetary benefit.

We need not spend much money on the occasion of birth day celebrations of any employee.

One birth day cake - size is to be commensurate with the no.employees of particular department or whole organization.

Garland and boque

Sweet and hot packets

Cool drinks/ coffee or tea

one birth day gift

Where the organization is not willing to contribute for the celebration of birth day of employees, the employees themselves can contribute for it by way of subscription varying from Rs 50- Rs 100/ per person. Every body knows that this amount is not so big for any employee.

If we do like this for each employee whose birth day is celebrated in an organization it must be memorable day in his or her life.
Your sincerely

Hi Khyati,
The best way to celebrate the employees b'days in an economical way is to find the no. of employees whose b'day comes under same month.Have some snacks along with them or many a times B'day boy/babies provide some snacks.Along with that have some activities/games you can organize to make some fun.

Hi, In our company we celebrated birthday monthly. We will buy a big cake at the end of the month and celebrate. Also we will give birthday card signed by HOD & Team Members.
