Hi !

Find the list of ideas for weekly or monthly programs to keep employees connected to the firm emotionally, to create excitement and to make our business unique relative to our nearby competitors for employees.

you can try this as well I hope it will work.

Just recognizing the staff is the most important step one can take.

Affirmation certificates redeemable for merchandise

Snacks to housekeeping staff all the time

When anyone makes a negative comment, put Rs. _______ or Rs.____ into a pot and use the money for a Fun Committee

Bring Polaroid camera to work occasionally and take candid of staff and post pictures on a bulletin board for all to enjoy

Selection of employee of the month/quarter by peers not just management

When he/she is employee of the month, give him/her a special name tag highlighting that status

Points given out at any time for anything, good attendance, helping out a client, etc., and are redeemable for prizes

When you reach a certain level in revenues, give all staff a reward, being sure to give them the goal in advance

Spontaneous calls from corporate to line staff saying how they are appreciated

Allow line workers to participate in training, evaluating & schedules

Fine those who arrive late to a meeting and distribute the money to those who were there on time

Certificate of achievement, lunch, and mug for perfect attendance, gift certificate to the one with longest perfect attendance

Allow those with perfect attendance record to get a gift of Rs. ________

Quarterly conference with all employees and support staff, especially director

Hold a regular meeting to tell staff what is going on and how they are doing

Public praising of an individual at a department meeting

Make sure all rewards, praise, bonuses, etc. are in public

Award to all (excluding housekeeping staff) who are seen picking up trash

Pre-printed "you done good" or "congratulations" note cards to have management inscribe

whenever appropriate spontaneously

Praise immediately and tell them specifically what they did right and how it helps the company

Always find ways to get staff's input into the operation - just simple

suggestion box works great

Work hard at finding a way to implement each suggestion and give a clear explanation why it cannot be used if that is the case

Acknowledge all suggestions, even if not implemented, express appreciation perhaps also a

small reward If you implement an idea, give a reward, and widely announce it

Periodically hold contests like a TV game show where employees answer questions about the

property , perhaps in teams

Give a small gift on the date of their anniversary

Hold an annual/monthly dinner for those with more than a certain number of years of service

Ask employees regularly what else we can do for them to enable them to do a good job

Hold weekly meetings with small groups of employees to discuss anything

Hold a weekly 20 minute meeting with one employee to discuss anything

Hold monthly employee meetings at which the financial performance of the previous

month and other goals are discussed in specific

Include career development discussion in all performance reviews

Form a recreation committee to plan monthly activities

Ask for input on cost-cutting programs during times of low demand

Customer service awards/ plaque Customer service awards/ plaque(Nominations by internal and external customers)

Lifesaver awards – give a roll of lifesavers to say “thank you” to a person who’s been a big help in accomplishing something

Kudos (status) Boards (posting customer compliments)

Cheers :)
