Employee Appreciation Day

Employee Appreciation Day is an annual American holiday dedicated to establishing a warm and mutually beneficial relationship between employee and employer. It is popular in Canada and Great Britain. Express your gratitude to your employees for how well they are doing. This will be the best reward for the employee.


The history of Employee Appreciation Day began in 1995, when it was established by Workman Publishing. The purpose of this day is to remind employers that businesses cannot be successful without a strong employee-employer relationship. Creating a large customer base, having the best prices on the market and constantly being aware of current trends and many more skills and abilities will not help build a perfect business. Great attention should be paid to building the right relationship with employees. They need to feel needed and important to the company, to be motivated. Only then will maximum efficiency be achieved in any case.

The American labor movement, which began to emerge in the 19th century, played a major role in supporting workers and creating optimal working conditions. Thanks to its participants, the workday was reduced to 8 hours and wages were much higher.
