In tough economic times of having to do more with less, it is critical to find ways besides money to keep employees engaged. According to HR Magazine, sixty-five percent of American workers said they received NO appreciation all last year for the good work they had done, yet the second most important thing people want from their jobs is full appreciation. Best of all, compensation is a right, but appreciation can be a FREE gift! In this inspiring session, Barbara Glanz shares ten simple truths of appreciation as well as dozens of creative ways, at little or no cost, to keep employees happy and productive. Attendees will be able to immediately apply these methods in their work and in their lives. The beauty of appreciation is that we can each give it to anyone we choose for no cost except our awareness and a few moments of our time. As HR leaders become more appreciative – and help others to become more appreciative – of employees and the good work they are doing, they will be shaping a world in which everyone feels valuable and appreciated, and morale, customer service, and loyalty will reach new heights.
