Employee Appreciation Day is fast approaching, people - and there's never been a better time to get involved in the action.
The ideal opportunity to show your staff exactly how much your business values them, the event typically takes place on the first Friday in March, meaning it falls this year on Friday 5th March 2021.
However, in the current climate, we say why limit it to just one day? Whether you're planning to celebrate your team on March 5th or perhaps organise your very own 'appreciation day' later in the spring, showing your employees you value them will be hugely popular, whatever the time of the year.

What Is Employee Appreciation Day?
Whilst it's largely celebrated in America and Canada, it's arguably never been more important for UK businesses to consider adding Employee Appreciation Day to their corporate calendar.
The occasion is all about honouring the hard work and loyalty your team give your business, offering employers the chance to show their staff that their contribution is truly valued.
Of course, after the year your team have had - and the turbulence that Coronavirus has brought to many people's working and home lives - showing your team that they're appreciated takes on a whole new layer of significance in 2021.
Companies are encouraged to do everything from giving their staff gifts to laying-on special lunches - and whilst Covid-19 might put a spanner in the works for the latter, you can definitely get involved in the former.
Read on to discover some of our favourite products for showing your staff how much you care, whether you plan to honour them on March 5th or later on in the year!
