Workplace Appreciation

By Lori Morton

Interpersonal & Leadership Skills

March 4 is National Employee Appreciation Day. However, according to research findings by SHRM, nearly 40% of all employees say they weren’t recognized at all over the past year. It is important to recognize employees on a regular basis regardless of a special event. Why? Because when employees know their hard work is appreciated and recognized they feel valued, and this motivates them to maintain and improve their performance. Appreciation improves workplace morale.
