Authentic Appreciation

When was the last time you felt appreciated and valued by a leader or supervisor at work? If you cannot remember, you are not alone: 65% of employees report that they receive zero recognition or appreciation in the workplace.

The negative impact when people don’t feel appreciated:

  • They don’t work as hard, resulting in a lack of productivity
  • Decreased morale
  • Tension and conflict within the office
  • Poor client service
  • Increased turnover

79% of employees who quit their jobs cite lack of appreciation as a key reason for leaving.

According to a recent study by the Society for Human Resource Management: While 51 percent of managers say they do a “good job” recognizing their staff, only 17% of staff members report their supervisor does a good job recognizing them for good work.

“Individuals in the workplace need to feel appreciated in order to enjoy their job, have positive work relationships, and stay with their organization long term.”
