Think of all the employees who make a difference every day at your medical facility: doctors, nurses, administrative assistants, cleaning crew members and dozens of others. They help make sure every person who comes through the door feels cared for in the best possible way.
Your employees need to know that you care about them as much as they care about everyone else. A recent study showed that when given positive recognition as little as once a month, 75 percent of employees reported being more satisfied with their job. Daily recognition brought that number up to 94 percent.
Show the employees in your workplace just how much you value their hard work with these staff appreciation gift ideas.
Giving doctors their due
March 30 is National Doctors’ Day, commemorating the day in 1842 when anesthesia was first used in surgery. But the truth is, any day is a perfect day to celebrate the surgeons, pediatricians, specialists, dentists and family doctors who help healthy people stay healthy and assist the sick in getting better.
Remind doctors they need to take care of themselves, too. Hand sanitizer in the shape of a doctor or vacuum travel tumblers make great gifts.
Nurses are the backbone of the medical industry
The medical world runs on the power of great nurses, and they deserve every bit of recognition you can offer. After all, it is their vital sign checks, listening ears and careful attention to detail that help people get well and stay well.
Offer them a fun little employee recognition gift with a stethoscope-wearing stylus pen. It’s great for taking notes, working with a smart screen or entertaining nervous young patients. If you want something bigger, try a lab coat, available in men’s or ladies’ styles.
Appreciate those who take care of the caregivers
Health Care HR Week is March 11 to 17 this year. Whether it’s answering an employee question on the fly or wading through paperwork to make sure all procedures are being updated and followed, HR clears the way for everyone else to do their job. Show them that their work family appreciates them with a special picture frame. Or give them a travel tech set that makes it easier to move from place to place while working on their laptop.
Remind everyone you’re glad they’re on the team
Employees working together as a team are essential to any company’s success. So give your staff some hearty thanks, whether with words or these staff appreciation gift ideas—or both!
