employee rewards/appreciation programs

  1. Hi
    Im wanting to start some type of employee appreciation/reward program at my Hospice. Hospice can be very rewarding when dealing with our pts and families but I would like to find creative and inexpensive ways to show the employees that management cares also. Does anyone have any type of program in place, if so, how do you select which emplyee receives the award/recognitation or do employees nominate each other, how often do you present it, any info/ideas would be greatly appreciated!

    Just make sure it is not always office staff recieving the rewards. Maybe it is because the field staff do not get a chance to vote, but it seems everywhere I have worked, the office gets rewarded while the field staff gives a fake smile and claps. Also Gift cards are great, gas, fast food, as that is what we usually use, we don't have time to go in somewhere to eat, it is always on the fly. I hope it goes well, all the ones I have seen just fall to the wayside after awhile.

    We have a notice board where anyone whether staff, client or family member can post thank you notes and then we have a draw every month or couple of months and either give a gift to the person mentioned in the note or if a group of people mentioned then get something for the group

    I reward employees for their hard work and kindness by giving them gift cards, Christmas gifts, thanks through emails--all of this privately, so those who know i am grateful are rewarded/appreciated. However, i am almost never in the office, thank God.
