It’s hard to feel #likeaboss this time a year when competing with Mr. Claus and Thanksgivukkah. How do you reward employees for their hard work on a startup budget? If you want to make your team feel appreciated this holiday season, look no further. Here are five awesome and affordable gift ideas that will ensure you get the ‘Worlds Best Boss’ mug under your tree.
1. Group Volunteer Day
Many non-profit organizations need help over the holidays. And let’s face it, at the end of a long year your team has earned a day away from the 27″ monitors. Ask your employees which philanthropic causes really matter to them and spend a day volunteering together. This is a win-win-win for a few reasons:
- The people you hire will appreciate your interest in their causes and getting to know them better. Plus, team bonding is uber agile.
- Supporting your local community is hugely important, and who knows, your company might even be recognized for it.
- This activity does not contribute to carpal tunnel syndrome.
