Employee Appreciation

The Importance of Appreciation

Recognizing, appreciating, and rewarding employees is a foundational pillar to a psychologically safe workplace. Employees who are appreciated can help build relationships, create a sense of community, and promote well-being individually as well as in your team

When people know that their manager and peers notice the good work they are doing, it’s far less threatening when they point out flaws. The essence of leadership is to paint a picture of what is possible—and genuine public praise is a great way to do that.
