Sometimes, it can feel as though our jobs are thankless. That’s why there are holidays such as Employee Appreciation Day to remind us how much we matter.
On March 1, people took to Twitter to thank those individuals who make their companies… well… work. From CEOs to ice cream trucks, they had a lot to say.

For many business owners and managers, sweet treats seemed to be the most popular way to celebrate how employees (not even necessarily their own) contribute to their lives and work.

But if you’re seeing these posts and getting salty that your company didn’t treat you to a spa day, don’t worry: Some people in the Twitterverse are keeping it real.

The downside to having a mobile & agile team is it can be difficult to get a team photo! But I am proud of all of them and the work they do in our communities #EmployeeAppreciationDay pic.twitter.com/R5Rgg9mGLi
