The days leading up to a project deadline are often filled with stress and long hours at the office, which leads to very little time to do your normal everyday tasks (like eating). Drew McLellan of Small Business Branding posted a great article on how saying thank you to your employees – even on a small budget- can go a long way. From gift cards to massages, free meals to time off, there are simple and relatively low cost ways to show your employees you appreciate them. Sure, a wad of cash would be great after all the hard work is over, but a free dinner brought into the office at 7 p.m. can definitely ease some of the overtime burden.
