With 2023 comes a wave of new expectations from employers. Decision makers can get ahead with new employee appreciation tactics (hello stress management programs) that motivate staff to do their best work. As the corporate world slowly adopts hybrid work models, finding ways to manage stress levels for remote and in-office staff alike will only improve workplace culture and the attitude employees bring to work everyday.
Why Show Appreciation In The Workplace?
Employee recognition is a must if businesses wish to see success in 2023. Before identifying worthwhile ideas to implement, we must first understand how management has evolved over the years. “Old school” managerial styles are rooted in loyalty to the company. For example, success in our professional lives once correlated with success in our personal lives. People lived to work, rather than work to live. Data shows that 66% of people left their job because employee appreciation was next to none. If the last few years have taught us anything it’s that this approach is, not in the least bit, effective. Insert: the fallout of The Great Resignation.
Before 2020, many employers failed to recognize that happiness comes from within, not from the positions or titles we hold. People are more than dollar signs and should be treated as such. In order to keep employees engaged and fulfilled in their daily roles, we must provide them with resources and outlets that promote healthy work-life balance practices. By assessing internal processes, businesses can dissect how policies enhance (or hinder) the wellbeing of their staff, customers, and so on. Experience is everything here. Bad experiences lead to quiet quitting, poor performance, and negative energy. Finding new ways to show gratitude for your employees is a giant step towards cultivating a workplace culture that sustains productivity and keeps employees dedicated because they want to contribute, rather than feeling obligated to earn a paycheck.
Recognizing the hard work people put into your company is the tip of the iceberg. If you want to maintain healthy workplace relationships, it is your responsibility to explore avenues of employee appreciation that support both people and operations.
