Everyone wants to do a good job; furthermore, everyone wants to be told they are doing a good job. Everybody’s different, and people need different types of encouragement and acknowledgment. For some people, a kind word will go a long way and motivate them to keep performing well. For others, salary is an indicator of a job well done. However, even with a salary that acknowledges their good work, if they aren’t getting those verbal kudos from the manager, team leader, or CEO, they can feel disengaged, simply from not having their work appreciated.
Now, this does not mean you have to go around the office handing out accolades to everyone for doing their job. Rather, when others acknowledge the hard work we’ve done, most of us feel on top of the world. Happy employees mean more productivity! Organizations that make acknowledgment part of their everyday exchanges between employees and supervisors have a powerful company culture, resulting in more engagement and productivity.
