Pizzas and Petitions – Happy National IT Day!

This post is part of our IT World Canada blog network, which is dedicated to helping its community of CIOs, IT managers and network admins. This channel is sponsored by Dell. As you're exploring these resources, check out this helpful resource and sign the petition from our sponsor: National I.T. Day.

A monthly pizza day, a gift certificate, coffee and donuts, eCards … there are lots of ways to say thank you.

Even if you just say “thank you”. With feeling, of course.

Human resource professionals will tell you that without exception, employees want to feel valued and appreciated. It's a small thing for a senior executive perhaps, but the simple act of saying thank you in one fashion or another can have a significant positive impact in morale and, ultimately, productivity.

Obviously that's as true for IT practitioners as it is for, say, your sales staff or the accounting department.

Turns out, there's an easy thing you can do that will really put an exclamation point behind that “thank you” insofar as your IT team is concerned. Add your voice to the online petition in support of a National IT Day.
