However, holidays like this always get me thinking about the deeper, long-term ways we show appreciation to team members. Our culture at SpinWeb is the primary reason that we have such a high retention rate and a long list of friends of the company that want to work with us. Though I'm far from perfect, I do make it a priority to not just sporadically offer gifts and tokens of appreciation, but rather to commit to a fundamental philosophy of appreciation that is core to our culture.
So what are some of the ways that you can show appreciation to your team year-round? These are some pages from my playbook and I hope they can help you, too.
