Often, work anniversaries are associated with outdated traditions, communist times and misplaced gifts. Quite wrongly. At a time when, statistically, an employee changes jobs every two or three years, it is worth appreciating those who loyally stick with one organisation.
Why is celebrating an anniversary important (not just for the jubilarian)? What ways of celebrating will work best? What gift ideas can be used? We write about it in this article.
The labour market is changing. Just a decade or so ago, we spent our entire adult lives in one job – from graduation to retirement in one company. Now it is completely unthinkable! Changing jobs is the norm. According to studies, we work in the same place for 2-7 years. And this average is getting shorter all the time.
Why? Private workplaces (there are statistically more of these than state-owned companies) increasingly rarely offer permanent contracts, the market is quite uncertain, there is a lot of competition. Also, employees often do not want to be tied to one job for a long time – we are looking for challenges, new opportunities, we change our place of residence much more often, we have higher requirements as to the position. This makes it all the more worthwhile to appreciate people who have a long job seniority in one organisation.
The art of celebration is quite a challenge for a boss, manager or other person responsible for organising events in a company. The method of celebration should be chosen according to the length of service, the position and the character of the celebrant. You can celebrate your anniversary during a short meeting, or at a company gala.
The jubilee celebrations must not be missed:
