Date When Celebrated : First Friday in March
If the boss can get a Bosses Day, then it’s only fair and appropriate that you, the employee, gets a day in your honor. Employee Appreciation Day honors employees everywhere.
Celebrations today should be created and executed by your company. Recognitions vary widely, and may include a lunch, snack, cakes, or other munchies, and small recognition gifts. Don’t expect a day off. Chances are, it just won’t happen.
As we researched this day, we wondered if it was a coincidence that Employee’s Day and Bosses Day are six months apart…..hmmmmmm.
Origin of “Employee Appreciation Day”:
According to David Nuualiitia “Employee Appreciation Day first arrived on calendars in 1995. One of Recognition Professionals International’s founding Board members, Bob Nelson, together with his publishing company, Workman Publishing, created Employee Appreciation Day as a way of focusing the attention of all employers, in all industries on employee recognition.”
There are a lot of local and company specific celebrations for Employee Day and week. They are spread across the year.
