In small or middle organizations, one simple but powerful way to show your employees you care is to celebrate their birthdays. Even at large organizations, it’s possible to recognize each employee’s birthday in a meaningful way, especially if you divide up the company by departments. You don’t need to throw a big party. Small gestures of buying cake for happy birthday can have a big impact. But either way, you should do something to let your employees know that you’re aware of their special day.
