Everyone wants to know they matter, that the effort they put forth is noticed and appreciated. But how often do you get that precious “thank you” that conveys just how much of your blood, sweat and tears went into that work?
Turns out, the answer is “precious little.” Organizations thrive when they can create cultures of meaning that enliven the humans within them. A key ingredient in that culture? Recognition. Practicing the fine art of recognizing employees for their contribution and support of fellow team members turns out not just to be good for well-being, morale, and motivation – but also handsomely rewarded at the financial bottom line.
