Valentine’s Day. A day that is often celebrated with couples, close friends and family. Well what about all your work buddies or employees? Valentine’s, yes, is about love. But it doesn’t always have to be romantic love that is celebrated. It could be about the love of a team that is willing to give their 100% to a task, or a co-worker who makes you feel like you’re a part of something bigger than themselves. It’s about the love and appreciation we have for our employees who help us realize our dreams into a reality, it’s about a boss who has taken a chance on you to work with and grow with. It’s the type of love that HR would term, “employee appreciation”.

The Holidays seem to have some polarizing effects on people, it can be either the most wonderful time of the year or a bah humbug of a season. But what is it that causes such a reaction? It isn’t necessarily about the presents, the food, the singing that makes this season so special, no not at all. It’s the people we share with around this time of year.
