Employee Appreciation Day: How to Make It Last

The concept of a dedicated Employee Appreciation Day is nothing new. In fact, in 1995, the USA started celebrating a somewhat unofficial Employee Appreciation Day on the first Friday in March. This tradition has helped spark a revolution in the ways employees and employers interact with one another.
