    The Art of Workplace Appreciation – Session Overview

    When was the last time you were recognized at your job? Workplace appreciation is inarguably one of the most important drivers of a positive and engaging work environment. In fact, experts say the lack of recognition is the key reason why employees quit their jobs.  When billions of dollars are being poured into recognition programs every year, why are people still feeling dissatisfied?  

    The nature of motivation is different for everyone, but underneath it all lay a set of ideals. Whether it’s a pat on the back, an award for a job well done, or some one-on-one time, we each have unique emotions attached to what makes us feel appreciated.  The book “The 5 Languages of Appreciation in the Workplace” addresses specific ways to effectively express appreciation to those we work with every day.  Please join us as we explore how to empower and encourage teams by identifying and celebrating each individual in their preferred appreciation language.  


    Learning Objectives:

    • Learn how to use workplace appreciation styles to build trust, increase emotional resilience, and foster cooperation

    • Understand the impact of effective recognition on work quality, turnover and absenteeism

    • Explore the relationship between implementing values-based recognition and a strengthened employer brand
