virtual employee appreciation ideas

Guest Post | April 30th, 2021

It’s no secret that the last year has been tough on everyone. With Covid-19 continuing to spread across the world, it’s not surprising that the transition to remote working has become so essential. As a result, showing appreciation for your employees who may feel lonely and isolated is more important than ever. Still, you may have to become slightly more creative to do so!


Let’s take a look at some of the ways you can ensure your employees stay motivated and feel appreciated, now more than ever!


Celebrate with flowers


Celebrating a birthday, anniversary, or hitting a critical milestone can be deflating if you’re doing so alone. Receiving an unexpected bunch of flowers on these special days can brighten your employee’s day, proven to improve mood and reduce stress! In addition, letting your employee know that you’re thinking of them from afar can be great for morale.



Give the gift of chocolate


With the confectionary market on the rise, chocolate sales are through the roof. More people are finding themselves reaching for their favourite bars as a way of comfort. What better gift to surprise your employee with than the nations favourite treat! Wholesale chocolate boxes can be the perfect way to show your appreciation to all of your hard-working employees and who doesn’t love unexpected chocolate! You can bulk buy individual chocolates and make up your own goody bags, or if you don’t fancy the effort, pre-made boxes can offer that same sweet remedy for an ultimately tricky year.


Plan a virtual games night


Nights out, office parties, and even general social interaction are limited. Planning virtual games or a quiz night can be a great way to re-connect with the office and have fun doing so! Making this a regular occurrence will make a massive difference for those who have been struggling with spending so much time alone. It gives everyone a chance to catch up and have fun. There are many online team games to choose from. The possibilities are endless!



Gift them a bottle of their favourite tipple


Sometimes, the only suitable gift for a time like this is alcohol, and if you’re looking for something a little different, how about a personalised gift box filled with your employee’s favourite drink. With so many choices, this is a perfect gift for all employees. You even have the option to choose something non-alcoholic for non-drinkers. Alcohol gifts can be perfect for Christmas, birthdays or just as a general thank you after such a challenging year. You could even time it to be paired with your virtual quiz night, so everyone has a drink to enjoy throughout the evening!


These are just a few ideas for you to consider. Of course, any unexpected gift arriving at your employee’s door is sure to put a smile on their face and remind them of how much you appreciate them. In a time when they are relying on you for confidence and morale boosts, a little extra effort definitely won’t go unnoticed.
