Is having birthday cake in the break room becoming a bit stale? Break out of the rut when it comes to celebrating staffers' birthdays with these ideas:
- Hand out low-cost perks that make employees smile."My boss gives Starbucks gift cards for birthdays," says admin Barb Woytek of Global Harvest Ministries. "Our employees love it!"
- Give "coupons" good for "taking one extra-long lunch" or "coming in two hours late" or "leave an hour early."
- Ditch the cake and serve a different edible. "We give a birthday card, a gift card, plus a packet of microwave popcorn," says Julie, another admin. "This is wrapped in a bundle with ribbon or raffia around it. They love this a lot more than the monthly birthday cake we did before."
- Incredible Edibles is one business that delivers interesting fruit and vegetable sculptures—an impressive and healthy treat if your budget allows.
