Human Resources: Four Ways to Celebrate Your Staff

In Human Resources, sometimes we get bogged down in the stressful parts of our jobs, such as firing employees and ensuring employee paperwork meets current standards. So today, let's focus on one of the fun parts of our job: appreciating great employees. No doubt most of your company's employees, are friendly, intelligent, and do hard work for the company. Here are four great ways to celebrate these wonderful company contributors:

Create a culture where praise is normal. In Human Resources, take the time to publicly and privately compliment employees who did something unexpected or great. Encourage managers and employees to do the same thing with each other. This creates a positive, celebratory company culture.

Staff appreciation days. You don't need to wait for Boss' Day or Administrative Professional's Day to have a fun day of celebration for the entire hard-working office. Take a day to decorate the Human Resource Office, offer treats and activities at lunch, and even bring in a speaker to provide an enriching and fun seminar.

Create "Employee of the Month" awards. Monthly employee awards are a great way to single out staff who did an exemplary, above and beyond job for the company. Have a small ceremony with a plaque to be displayed in the office, and get the employee a small reward such as a gift card. Send an email to the entire company honoring this employee.

Performance bonuses. Instead of using performance as a threat in the annual review, use it to reward employees who did a particularly excellent job in the last review period. Financial bonuses are a great way to motivate employees to work hard and make them feel appreciated by the company.

Empowering Human Resources With Chatbots

Chatbots are, for modern businesses, a gateway into the many uses of AI already up and running in the business world. These programs, developed through research into natural language processing, can imitate human conversation and solve tasks using an automated structure. Chatbots (bots is short for robots) can assist HR departments and leadership in several ways, particularly in highly repetitive tasks such as mandatory training, scheduling interviews, giving information about benefits, and other customer service needs. The HR chatbot programs have been specifically designed for the work of HR departments, and can be used across multiple platforms, such as company websites, email, and instant messaging and text services.

Employee Engagement is Good, But Watch for Burnout

When an employee loves her job, she does better work. The employer keeps her busy with new challenges, and she keeps doing her job efficiently. Unfortunately, it doesn't always work out this way. Sometimes, the employee keeps going until she can't go anymore. An employee engaged with her work is a good thing, but burnout is a reality that should not be ignored.
