#WorkTrends Recap: Gratitude and Giving Back

share on:

One tenant of a positive workplace culture is appreciation. Employees who receive recognition and appreciation are more likely to be engaged and work harder. A little kudos from a manager goes a long way.

This week I discussed the importance of leaders showing gratitude and giving back to employees, partners and customers with special guest Elisabeth Vezzani, Co-founder of Sugarwish, a corporate gifting organization.

Elisabeth shared why non-cash incentives work best for employee motivation and creating happiness throughout the office.

Here are a few other key points Elisabeth shared:

  • 80% of employees are motivated to work hard when employees feel appreciation from their bosses
  • People stay longer and work harder for non-cash incentives
  • A gesture of appreciation does not need to cost a lot
