EAs (Executive Assistants) on Fishbowl

Partnering with another EA to try to change the culture in our office. Seems people are a little down right now. What are some ideas and things you have seen in your office that the employees loved?

I’m not going to fill in the blanks for you. This is your office and you know the people and environment better than I do. If you do anything, do it with real caring because if not, people will know. Recognition should be about investing and lifting people up, it shouldn’t be a bandaid.
