Praise More Often to Increase Employee Engagement


“Appreciate everything your associates do for the business. Nothing else can quite substitute for a few well-chosen, well-timed, sincere words of praise. They’re absolutely free and worth a fortune.” – Sam Walton

The Great Engagement is a call to action to praise more often.

Do you praise your employees easily, sincerely and often?

If not, you may be losing out on an opportunity to trigger a dopamine release which can then boost innovative thinking and creative problem-solving.

Tips to Take Action

  • Catch someone doing something well and praise them promptly.
  • Consider how each employee would like to be praised – publicly, privately, in person, by email, on social media, etc.
