• EMBRACING RECOGNITION AND THANKFULNESS IN THE WORKPLACE

    November 02, 2021
    Great leaders know the positive effects of employee recognition. Showing appreciation and thankfulness in the workplace helps promote healthy relationships, productivity, motivation, retention, and even overall employee morale. However, failure to recognize employees may bring about negative consequences. 

    According to a study, 37% of workers feel that employee recognition is the most important thing to them at the office; whereas nearly half of employees say they would put more energy into their work if they were recognized more often. While receiving gratitude is imperative to the success of a company’s workforce, 65% of employees say they haven’t been recognized for their work in the past year. In the current hiring crunch, organizations will need to flip the script on recognition and build a culture of thankfulness in the workplace.
