    FAST FORWARD: Time is Precious There is a classic song by the 80s band Loverboy that can be applicable to some of your employees: everybody’s “Working for the Weekend.” Even highly engaged employees still enjoy time off to spend with friends and family. One surefire way of making your employees feel your appreciation is by giving them paid time off . If you can, surprise your team with a half day on Friday to fast forward their weekends. Or if you can’t afford to have an empty office, have them draw cards out of a hat with different times on them.

      I remember the song, Jessica! Now, I won’t be able to get it out of my head. :)

      I agree about paid time off. I used to that with my staff when they went above and beyond. They appreciated it and it was my pleasure to do it.

    These employees work with passion and feel a profound connection to their company. People that are actively engaged help move the organization forward. 88% of highly engaged employees believe they can positively impact quality of their organization’s products, compared with only 38% of the disengaged.
