Ways to impress your boss this New Year!

With Christmas gifts in full swing the past week, New year is round the corner. Are you one of those lucky ones who have a great manager? If so, don’t hesitate to express your appreciation this New Years! Here are a few memorable gifts Rekroot came across!


Write a Handwritten Note

“A handwritten note that says something special is always appreciated. Just something that mentions a small detail he or she picked up on or an exchange that we had sounds simple—but it’s truly appreciated.”

—Peter Sena, Digital Surgeons


Offer to Help in Unexpected Ways

“Sometimes my holiday shopping is put on the back burner due to my long hours in the office. My team’s helped me with Christmas shopping and gift wrapping to help lessen the stress that comes with this season. What seems like a small favor to them means a great deal to me. Their help allows me to finish my work so I can truly enjoy the holidays with my family, and I am very thankful for that.”

—Leila Lewis, Be Inspired PR


Buy Unique Gifts

“I hired a programmer four years ago who had just arrived in Miami from Cuba. After a year of working together, he went back to visit his family during holidays and came back with a box of Cohiba Cigars and a bottle of Havana Club Dark Rum.”

—Duran Inci, Optimum7


Get Creative

“At our annual end-of-the-year holiday party, one of our employees wrote and performed a rap in front of about 80 to 90 other staff members. It was really well done and funny, and it took a lot of dedication. It was all that people could talk about for quite some time after the party.”

—Brian David Crane, Caller Smart Inc.


Decorate the Office

“I was very surprised one morning to walk into the office and it was completely decorated with Christmas decorations that matched our company colors. I was very impressed with the team, as most days I’m the first one in and the last one out. They did a great job of keeping it a secret, and they took it as far as getting a company-colored custom quilt made that was placed under the tree.”

—Engelo Rumora, Ohio Cashflow


Broadcast Your Thankfulness

“I vividly remember a number of toasts or speeches employees of all different rankings have made during our holiday parties over the years. It’s a great way to differentiate yourself by broadcasting your thankfulness and vision.”

—Sam Saxton, Salter Spiral Stair and Mylen Stairs


Do Something for Others

“Two years ago we had an employee who decided he wasn’t giving anyone at work a gift. Instead, he went out and purchased gifts for a family in need. He purchased everything and took several of us from work to deliver the gifts. The joy this brought us was intense. Since then we’ve encouraged our team to give to others during this time of need.”

—John Rampton, Due


Show Your Continued Dedication

“The memorable moments are often the most simple. So often we hear about how people just simply seem to slow down during the holiday season and take a little winter break. Employees who continue working through the holidays and don’t treat it as a mini-vacation are always appreciated. They allow me to realize the value in my team.”

—Matt Doyle, Excel Builders
