  • Company dinner...

    I'm just about to head out the door to take my crew to dinner and give them their bonuses. I feel that I owe it to them for the hard work they put in for me. We take them out for lunch quite often during the year and have dinners together sometimes, or throw a BBQ for them. I try hard to make them feel appreciated even though they drive me nuts sometimes.

    How do you let your employees know you appreciate them? Maybe I'm missing an opportunity.

      Re: Company dinner...

      joey, phoebe and i went to friends shop party last night. i'm always rickyclaus

      this time it was only 5 sets of gifts. for the guys and 1 office staff.

      in the past it was 20 for the guys and 3 for the office.

      i guess i was able to splurge more because of that

      next time give us some advance notice and maybe rickyclaus will show up riding his k-60

            The very fact that you care to let them know they are appreciated tells me they know how you feel about them. I worked for a big company, New York Tel. and while the pay and benefits were great, if a boss said "Thanks for doing such a good job" it meant the world to me. Dinners and bonuses sure hit home, but a simple "good job" once in a while does wonders to lift the spirits. Lunches, dinners a barbeque and bonuses? I'd say you coverd all the bases! Thanks for being such a good boss.

                Man, that sounds great! Personally, It's been a very long time since I've worked for any company that treated their employees with such appreciation. So thank you! It's nice to know that there are employer's out there like you.

                When I started my career, I worked for a sub-contract company that would have a summer picnic and every Christmas, they'd hold an evening dinner party at one of the nicer hotels in town. It was always greatly appreciated.

                But I spend my last thirty years working for a major compressor manufacturer. Depending on the department you worked in, they might not do anything. Some departments had a luncheon in the back room, where everyone brought a dish, some dept's did nothing, some manager's would take their employer's out to lunch (but not the spouse's), and other's took the husband and wife out to a major dinner party at the country club. It wasn't until I moved up to the Marketing Dept, before I had that experience.

                At one time, this inequality was brought up to plant manager and he quickly solved the irregularity, declaring that no further expenses would be approved for any kind of Christmas celebration. It even went so far as to stop buying a Christmas tree for the lobby! Ah, such are the ways of some multi-billion dollar corporations! Today, I don't know what they do, just glad to be the he!! out of the place.

                So Trent, I want to say how much I appreciate you, and others like you, who display such Christmas spirit and even more so, the kind appreciation for the guys that work for and with you.



                Merry Christmas,

                CWS

                  I knew this thread was a good idea. I need to work on telling them thank you and good job. I do it now and then but quite often forget to tell them.

                  Thanks guys!

                  Merry Christmas!

                      Just found out the boss is making a leg of lamb dinner, and she has invited all her employee's over.

                        Cool! Enjoy the good food and the fellowship! It's nice to interact with your co-workers in a different setting where everyone is equal.

                          My first Dinner party is DJ Tran. Serve grilled salmon with fresh grilled asparagus and small new potatoes. A dish of sorbet for dessert cleans the palette and leaves a fresh taste in the mouth that your guests will be thanking you .and for decorating the table for any dinner party includes nice flatware and china. Roll the flatware in a cloth napkin or create a rose with the napkin and place in the wineglass. Candles sitting in shallow bowls filled with small colored stones add ambient lighting and an added personal touch to the table.
