Your employees are the backbone of your hotel. They interface with guests, manage day-to-day operations, and (this year more than ever) wear many hats. As we approach Thanksgiving, we want to help you show your appreciation for your staff members.
They’ve stepped up to the plate to help you during these tough times, and expressing your gratitude through hotel supplies can be a great way to say thank you. Here are 3 hotel supplies that give thanks to your staff.
A holiday card is an annual holiday tradition among family and friends, but have you ever gifted them to your staff? Ordering branded holiday cards and writing a short, personalized note to each employee is a great way to show each individual that you not only care about them person-to-person, but that the business as a whole cares about them too. We recommend you order them and distribute them to the managers of each department to sign and give out, to ensure the general manager doesn’t feel overwhelmed.
Wearing masks, social distancing, and other safety procedures have become mandatory requirements, but the way you speak about them can make a major difference in your staff’s perception of these rules. Instead of using signage that displays demands and rules, ordering custom signage that thanks people for wearing their masks can shift the perspective to be more positive. Basic human psychology shows us that people value autonomy and take praise better than criticism, so framing your requirements in a way that makes people feel like safety protocols are a decision they make to help others can show your thankfulness and effectively enforce these regulations.
Who doesn’t love a great pen? Working in hospitality, you do a lot of on-the-fly writing. Having a quality pen to carry with you – especially one that has been gifted by the hotel – can make the high volume of writing much more enjoyable. Ordering special luxury pens to give to staff for doing a good job in an intense year is both a practical and thoughtful way to say thank you.
It’s important to take care of your staff alongside your guests. To make sure you’re showing your employees how much you appreciate their hard work, order your gratitude gifts today.
