We all love to be appreciated

What do you do to make a difference for others?
I go out of my way to thank them, try and do something work related for them or get them a small gift like a ten dollar gift card. Except the third option leads to niceness contests and you have to just become friends with the guy because it’s getting expensive.
I show appreciation to my co-workers by showing up to work early, taking care of the equipment I’m running and keeping it clean. The office appreciates that my paperwork is easy to read.
- I work with numerous different professions that help to keep me safe in the work place. So every Christmas I make a point of saying thank you by taking in baking, gum, chocolates and other small packages of candies.
- The other day, I was parked in paid parking. I went to the Kiosk to pay and realized they wouldn’t take my debit card and wanted cash only. I had to use the parkade about an hour later so I took cash as well as the 30 cents I owed and a piece of puffed wheat cake for the attendant. He was quite surprised and thrilled.
- When at work I make popcorn for the afternoon shift change. My coworkers love little things like dilly bars after a stressful moment. I usually don’t tell anyone they are in the freezer so when we need a break I can bring them out.
- I usually have suckers in the desk and when I have problems with an aggressive situation at work the clients try a sucker when they settle.
As a teacher, I show appreciation to my
parents through my weekly newsletter and random personal notes, thanking them
for their support and patience especially during these uncertain times.
Kindergarten parents love hearing they are doing a good job. 😉 I recognize parents at our graduation and have my students make hand- made gifts
at Christmas, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. As an administrator, I make myself
available to the teachers for support and encouragement, through daily visits
to their classroom. Our teachers also receive a gift at the beginning of the
year such as a coat, teacher bag or shirts displaying our school logo. They
also are recognized on their birthdays and teacher appreciation with treats and
gifts from our local businesses.
