- Jan 29 by TheCommuterA monthly newsletter is generated by HR that lists everyone's birthday during that particular month. Also, HR leaves a bakery cake in the breakroom one day every month to celebrate the birthdays of all employees who were born in that month.
- Jan 30 by dah dohMy old manager used to bring appetizers and a cake and announce birthdays for the month during the staff meeting. I used to think its dumb. But I sorta miss that little extra touch that she did for us. At my hubby's work, they each draw names of a coworker and for that person's birthday the other person gets you your favorite type of cake.

One year we were all working nights, the people that were on shift were all really close, friends outside work even. So it was one co-workers birthday and everybody surprised her with cakes and a small gift.
One place I used to work had a birthday fund. Everybody would pay £5 and the birthday organizer would buy a card and a small cake or gift for the birthday.

- Feb 19 by jmll1765We usually get a cake or cupcakes and have a potluck meal. It's usually just my shift and our director isn't involved. Our nursing supervisor will participate and occasionally we invite ICU and ER (I work med-surg in a small rural hospital).
