Ideas to Show Appreciation

“You never know when a moment and a few sincere words can have an impact on a life.” – Zig Ziglar

The Great Engagement is a call to action to expand your approach to more effectively engage your employees.

Research from Gallup suggests that rewards and recognition, with its low cost and high impact, might be one of the most underutilized tools that managers have for boosting engagement.

Do you regularly show appreciation to your staff members?

If not, you could be losing an opportunity to provide encouragement and bolster engagement.

Take Action

A simple thank you can make them feel more valued in the workplace and also brighten up their day!
