Bad things happen when people don’tfeel appreciated.
Sound familiar? The fact is, the simple act of not showing appreciation to your team members can contribute to a number of negative consequences in the workplace:
Higher rates of turnover and absenteeism
Decrease in productivity and quality of work
Lower customer satisfaction ratings
Increasing apathy, sarcasm and cynicism
Increased internal theft
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 the company’s bottom line.
The cure? Employees who truly feel valued are more likely to be actively engaged at work, and create a positive work environment.
The EA can help you get there!
Our on-site training program, The “The 5 Languages of Appreciation in the Workplace” is designed to help managers, directors, supervisors and teams learn how to communicate appreciation in a way that is targeted and effective. This targeted approach is powered by the MBA (Motivating by Appreciation) inventory, an innovative tool that identifies the Appreciation language that’s most effective for each participant—even if the participant works offsite.
Popular trainer Dave Tippett is a Certified Facilitator for “5 Languages of Appreciation in the Workplace” and is eager to have a no-obligation discussion with you about the program. We focus on your specific needs and time restrictions.
