79% of employees say they receive no praise or recognition at work
Dr. Paul White
As a coaching organization, we know a major issue for executives, business owners and leaders is to attract, motivate and keep good employees. That is why we are Certified in Appreciation at Work™, which is based on the book by Dr. Gary Chapman and Dr. Paul White, The 5 Languages of Appreciation in the Workplace. We can effectively train individuals and groups in the proven principles of The 5 Languages of Appreciation in the Workplace. Within this training, we help leaders identify their unique language of appreciation by taking the Motivating By Appreciation (MBA) Inventory. The material can be presented as a series of workshops or in a single session. This truly is the best kept secret for employee engagement and retention, and shifting culture.
Bad Things Happen When People Don’t Feel Appreciated!
A key issue to understand is that when employees don’t feel appreciated, bad things happen within the organization, such as;
- Higher rates of tardiness
- More absenteeism (people just don’t show up, or they call in “sick” more often)
- Increased internal theft by employees (and Managers)
- Higher turnover rate
- More internal conflict and stress among team members
- Decrease in productivity and quality of work
- Lower customer satisfaction ratings.
All of these factors contribute to higher costs for companies and organizations. From a business perspective, appreciation isn’t just about making people “feel good.” The level of appreciation experienced by staff affects a company’s bottom line – Dr. Paul White, Ph.D.
Appreciation at work is the “Pay” that everyone is looking for in today’s work environment. With everyone doing more with less in today’s business world, this is the “Raise” that people are looking for and aren’t getting and don’t know how to ask for. Take your company’s culture to a new level of satisfaction by learning how to improve morale to higher levels previously not thought possible.
