Appreciation event

Every year, organizations around the world take advantage of their country’s version of National Volunteer Week and the enhanced publicity that comes with it, hosting lunches, dinners, teas, ice cream socials, etc., in honor of their volunteers. …These types of events are considered formal recognition, meaning they are planned, institutionalized actions that happen on a repeating schedule, usually on an annual basis. As the name implies, formal recognition is something that is sanctioned by the organization and, by its very nature, often leaves little room for spontaneity. By contrast, informal recognition is all about the small, everyday gestures one does to express gratitude for other people. Rather than being an event that the organization arranges, it’s an action initiated by a supervisor or co-worker and is more personal and spontaneous in nature. …Such informal validations, which are always personal in nature, reinforce the vital concept that the most vibrant and resilient organizations are made up of individuals, coming together and sharing their unique strengths.
