82 percent of employees would rather receive praise over a salary increase.
If you are a business owner or manager, you know that your team and clients are your most valuable asset. They have helped you reach new goals and have also helped make your business a success. Without them, you wouldn’t be where you are today.
This time of year is the perfect time to be thankful at work.
Not only can gratitude put a smile on your face or on those faces around you, but it can also increase productivity in the office, sales from clients, and overall happiness within your network. Go out of your way to make someone’s day and it may just be what causes a positive domino effect in your community.
Being thankful at work can be shown in various shapes, sizes, and costs. Take a task off one of your employee’s to-do lists, talk to your client over the phone instead of email, or send a gift to recognize one of your employee’s personal achievements.
