How to show some love for your teams on Valentine's Day | Just Eat for Business
Roses are red, violets are blue, it's a great time to show your co-workers how much they mean to you!
Whether they're always on hand to help out with big projects or get the coffees in when you need a boost, your co-workers, work besties and work wives definitely deserve to feel the love this Valentine's Day.
Plus, a few treats go down really well when it comes to helping your employees feel valued and appreciated. Studies have shown that when they feel appreciated, employees have more drive and determination, better work relationships, improved personal standing, and stronger connections to their company. In fact, employees who receive frequent appreciation in the workplace are much more likely to generate innovations and increased efficiency.
So what better way to show your teams that they're valued and loved than on Valentine's Day? Check out our great ideas below and boost everyone's mood this Valentine's Day!
Send an appreciation note
Although anonymous love notes are more common, Valentine's Day is a great time to show your colleagues you appreciate them and their hard work. At Just Eat for Business, we celebrate Valentine's Day by sending letters to each other to say thanks and show appreciation. In the style of Secret Santa, each person gets a random name and writes a quick note. Another great idea for your office is a Valentine's Wall, where you can write messages on post-it notes and stick them on the wall for that special co-worker to read! Whether you keep it anonymous or shout it from the rooftops, who doesn't want to receive a nice letter?
Bring people together over breakfast
Early morning meeting? Bring the whole team together with a heart-felt breakfast and get them feeling good for the rest of the day. Check out these adorable heart-shaped pastries from Le Montmartre, available to deliver direct to your office! They've got pretty raspberry croissants on offer, too, to really show the love.
Indulge in some Team treats
A small act of kindness really does go a long way in the office and it boosts everyone's mood to know they're valued by their employer. From cakes to cookies to these Instagram-worthy meringues from Meringue Girls, we've got just the treats to show how much you care. Surprise your team with a giant Chocolate smash-heart (decorated with sparkle, obvs) from Sweet Tree by Browns or host an interactive pop-up event in the office for an extra special afternoon pick-me-up.
Organise a lunch date
Use a randomiser and set up lunch dates between colleagues who don't usually get to work together so everyone can get to know each other! This is a great way to boost office culture, as no one wants to have strangers for co-workers. Grab your lunch and find a cosy corner to sit and chat, or steal a pizza their hearts with a pizza buffet from one of our great vendors, like Homeslice.
Get moving and encourage healthy hearts
Get hearts racing and host a lunch time activity in the office to promote heart health, such as yoga or HIIT. We love our yoga sessions here at Just Eat for Business – it's a great way to get some exercise into a busy day and gives you a much needed break away from your desk to clear your head.
