“To be able to work at home successfully takes all of the following: motivation, perseverance, good work habits, no excuses, balance, accountability and action” – Byron Pulsifer. There are a lot of good habits that contribute to an efficient employee working remotely and these are skills that need to be highlighted and celebrated. The question is – how do you make sure that your employees feel appreciated? The answer is to provide them with gifts that invoke the feelings of recognition, celebration and reward.
Recognition is important because it highlights the efforts employees put into the business as well as their ability to adapt in an extreme situation like the pandemic. A feeling of celebration is to let the employee enjoy their efforts and celebrate everything they have done. And lastly the reward is to give them something tangible that they can have as a memento or something that they can find value in.
