18. Ideal Work Environment

The ideal work environment looks different to everyone. But the important things - like communication, praise and recognition - never go out of style and are always appreciated.


19. Personalization

Give employee awards with a personal touch - a name plate for their desk, personalized note pads, etc. Get to know their interests and give them gifts with those themes - show them you value them as not just an employee, but as an individual person.


20. Random Acts of Kindness

Recognize them when they aren't expecting it. Let them leave a few hours early on a Friday just because. Random acts of kindness help keep your company culture from becoming monotonous and boring.
