It’s been a heck of a week hasn’t it! Some of the worst weather we’ve seen in a long time, traffic madness, gas shortages and power cuts. No wonder they called it Snowmageddon on social media!
Everyone is feeling the brunt of the winter weather. It’s easy to become a bit down at this time of year. Yet, when I walked into UKFast Campus each morning this week, there has been the usual energy. It’s all driven by the team. It’s remarkable. I just don’t know how they do it!
The team are the reason that UKFast is what it is and that’s the same for every single business. You can’t have a great business without great people. It’s that simple. That’s why it is so important to acknowledge days like today – Employee Appreciation Day.
Employee Appreciation Day
It’s a national day to let your team know just how grateful the leadership team, the owners and beyond are for the work that they are doing.
Whilst business leaders should, of course, show their appreciation for their teams every day, today is a great opportunity to go a little further. So, our team were greeted by a cup of hot Vimto at reception. Our lovely chefs have made fresh soup and rolls for lunch. And there are a few more treats planned for later in the day. Little touches to bring a bit more warmth to a chilly day. You don’t need to throw a huge event.
I also want to take the opportunity to say a huge thank you to each and every one of the UKFast team for the commitment, energy and hard work they bring to UKFast every single day. Gail and I appreciate everything you do.
