A little appreciation goes a long way. When people feel appreciated in the workplace, they are 13% more productive, contribute to a more positive workplace culture, and exhibit enhanced motivation and engagement to their roles, teams and organizations. However, a recent USC study shows that in today’s environment many workers feel underappreciated, especially by their managers. People express and receive appreciation in different ways, so if you try to express appreciation in ways that aren’t meaningful to the other person, they may not feel valued at all. Also, thanks to the pandemic, you might have to get creative in the ways you show it, especially in a virtual environment!
