Background Companies become a second family to both their employees and their employees’ families. People are the very heart of a company, rather than the equipment, offices, showrooms, and paperwork. Baldrige (1993) reminded us, “Business is about people, and people have babies, get married, get sick, grow old, die, and engage in all kinds of other human activities” (p. 538). People who run companies do well to remember the people who work for them and their needs. Everyone needs to know the proper manners for celebrations and rites of passage. There are many occasions that call for celebration, but here the focus is on company anniversaries and when an employee gets married or has a baby (Baldrige, 1993) . Company Anniversaries Important anniversaries should be given special attention by all companies. This is the best way to remind the press, customers, and employees of what has been achieved up to this point and what to expect in the coming years. Companies will gain many rewards when anniversaries are celebrated appropriately. Some of the benefits include: (a) uplifting of employee attitudes and higher productivity, (b) putting a new face on the company, its products and services, and (c) increasing sales. The tenth, twenty-fifth, fiftieth, hundredth, and each following quarter is when the red carpet should be rolled out. Planning the celebration is the most critical part and should be handled appropriately (Baldrige, 1993) . One person should be put in charge of planning the celebration. Someone inspired, artistic, organized, and knowledgeable about the company and coworkers. Employees should also be involved in the planning and should be asked to provide their own ideas. Public relations people should be involved to help with all media. Reasons for the celebration should be well defined and a budget should be established. Anniversaries can take from five to ten years to plan
