Every year, the first Friday in March is celebrated as Employee Appreciation Day. It is meant for employers and managers to set aside their time to appreciate and thank their employees. Of course, we should appreciate our employees every day at work, but having a day devoted to the cause draws much extra attention.

Infact, we are so happy to announce that, Vantage Circle is celebrating the whole month of March as Employee Appreciation Month and this is the first episode of our special Employee Appreciation Podcast Series.
