Employee Appreciation Day is swiftly approaching on March 1st, marking a special occasion to celebrate and acknowledge your employees for their dedication and hard work.

Yet, the question arises: what is the most effective method to demonstrate your appreciation? As a startup employer operating within a tight budget, how can you meaningfully express gratitude? And how can you honour an introverted employee, ensuring the recognition feels sincere without causing discomfort?

Joanne Swann, editor of Workplace Wellbeing Professional, is joined by two experts in the field of workplace wellbeing to answer all of these questions and much more.
