    TimeOut Chicago says:
    “After the Chicago river is dyed a murky shade of green, the city’s big, noisy, fun-filled homage to the Irish makes its way through Grant Park on Columbus Drive, with plenty of bagpipes, drum corps, Irish dancers and other merrymakers in tow. Since St. Patrick’s Day falls on a Saturday this year, the parade will actually be on the holiday itself. Find the viewing stand filled with local dignitaries in front of Buckingham Fountain.”St patty's parade

Where we work. More and more, we associate our place of employment with a descriptive part of who we are as individuals, and with good reason! Our coworkers and us are a direct reflection of our company’s goals, visions, achievements, and so much more.
While we should continuously celebrate and motivate each other without needing a specific reason, Employee Appreciation Day gives everyone a little reminder to consider those that make your company great.  Show your employees you value all that they do! Investigate any or all of these great perks and team-building ideas for E A Day, but not just for the day itself.
