Celebrating Thanksgiving with Your Employees

Appreciating Your Team This Holiday Season

Turkey Day is almost here! At Camp Bow Wow, we are so lucky to have such amazing employees who work hard every day to make sure our guests and their dogs have the best experience possible. As a franchisee, it is important to make your employees feel valued and appreciated, especially this time of year. We've put together a few ways you can make this happen:

Host a Pie Making Contest

You can never have too much pie! Please everyone's sweet tooth this holiday by hosting a pie-making contest. Have each employee bring in their favorite Thanksgiving pie and vote on a winner. This is not only tasty, but it also brings employees together to bond over a shared activity.

Create a Thank-You Note Wall

Encourage employees to write thank-you notes to one another for going above and beyond at work. Display these notes on a wall or bulletin board for everyone to see and appreciate. Decorate the board as a team for additional group bonding!

Give Back as a Group

Giving back is always important, but it has an extra special meaning during the holidays. Look into volunteering opportunities in your community or organize a donation drive for those in need. This brings your staff closer together while promoting a sense of gratitude and purpose.

Recognize Each Employee's Hard Work

Many times, employees can feel underappreciated for the work they do. Show each one how much you value them by giving out personalized thank-you cards or small gifts. This simple gesture can truly make someone's day (and holiday).

We hope these ideas inspire you to celebrate Thanksgiving with your employees and make them feel special. Happy holidays from Camp Bow Wow! We are so grateful for our franchisees, Counselors, and Campers.
