ooking for a new way to recognize employees this holiday season? At a time of year when people feel most inclined to give something back to the community, how about recognizing employees for their volunteer work?

Employees appreciate companies that value their efforts in supporting charities. Such behaviour reflects positively upon the individual, as well as the organization. By recognizing employees for public service work, organizational leaders show they appreciate and value the employees beyond their 9-to-5 contributions.
