Words of Appreciation for better Engagement

Employee appreciation is the foundation for a positive, thriving work culture. In fact, research has shown that appreciation increases employee retention by 53%, apart from having many other workforce benefits. Appreciation doesn’t need to be expensive or even involve cash at all. However, it does need to be authentic, heartfelt, specific, timely, frequent, and memorable to have the desired impact on employees.

The current crisis calls for leaders, managers, and HR departments to deliver the right messages to their employees, especially when they are working remotely or working from offices on the field. It’s imperative that their employees’ support throughout the pandemic is applauded, especially when they’re feeling isolated, undervalued and burned out. Here are some messages you can use to appreciate your coworkers, seniors and other teams today:
