Random recognition

Starting today, send an employee a thank-you card to their house. In it, say something along the lines of, "On behalf of the residents and your co-workers, I would like to thank you for the hard work you do. It is really appreciated, much more so than you can ever know." Have the administrator and the person's department head to sign it. Everybody should get one at random at least once during the year.

Great idea!

Another spin on this is sending thank you cards to the families of employees, saying "We want to thank you for sharing your wonderful ________ with us. They are making the lives of others so much better."

We have also done this for snow emergency days, etc. to all families of staff.
