February is known as the month of love, so why not spread the love amongst your colleagues - it makes sense seeing how you spend 1,795 hours a year with them! Having a team who love their job makes life so much easier, don’t you think?
When people want to get up and come to work on a dark February morning it makes all the difference to your company's culture. You have better employee retention, the quality of work is improved, there’s more cohesion and collaboration within the workplace and your staff have a more positive view of the business they work for.
So, why not over the month of February show your team just how much you love and appreciate them with one of our 5 easy ways to spread the love:
1. Acknowledge them
Take the time out of your day to personally say well done or thank you to your team when they deserve it. If you’re unable to say this in person, why not send them a handwritten note, instead of an email. This shows you’re willing to invest both time and effort and truly mean what you are saying.

2. Listen to them
Any relationship can be hard to navigate if you don’t listen to the other person (be it personal or professions). So, now is the time to listen to what your team has to say. Ask for their input, it might be on how to improve the office environment or what procedures need updating. Your team will have lots to say, so take the time to listen to them, and by doing so you will show them that their opinion is valued.

3. Take them out
Set a date in the diary for your team to spend some quality time away from the office together, this can be going for a spy adventure in London, or out for dinner. Giving them something to look forward to can be a real mood booster (especially in these dull winter months). Plus it gives you the perfect opportunity to get to know them outside of work.

5. Keep the love going all year
Making your team feel loved and appreciated should be something that you keep doing all year. For many of your team it will be the little things that matter; Remembering work anniversaries, birthdays, or even knowing what’s going on in their life outside of work - they’re in the process of buying a house, or are looking to adopt. Celebrating these things with them will show them that you truly do care about them.
