Whether they are willing to admit it or not, most employees do appreciate it when others
remember their birthday.
It is an excellent reason to do a little celebrating at work and shows employees that others
care about them. If you currently don't have a system in place for celebrating birthdays for employees, consider setting one up.
Make arrangements for one or two team members to be responsible for
purchasing birthday cards and having coworkers to sign them.
If your budget and circumstances allow it, consider giving a "lunch-sized" restaurant gift
certificate or having a small party. And if you're really enthusiastic, go ahead and add some birthday decorations to the birthday person's office or work area.
Everyone likes to feel special and zeroing in on birthdays is an easy way
to do that -- with the extra boost that such attention is likely to create for employee morale.
