Simple, thoughtful gestures are often those that get etched in our memory. Workplaces are no different. The more open you are to letting your co-workers know that they matter, the happier your workplace is.
How can you make employees feel appreciated?
Whether it's sharing ideas or networking with people across all hierarchies, make sure employees are given the freedom to communicate freely and be their genuine selves.
Drop in a "Good Job" to a co-worker who has given their first presentation or a "Thank you" to a team member or manager who helped you out with closing a deal.
Whether it’s an award or a customer acquisition, celebrate the wins—both big and small—with all of your employees.
Conduct regular surveys or hold Q&A sessions to understand their grievances and address them promptly.
Allow employees to prioritize their work-life balance. Give them a water cooler space to engage in activities that aren’t about work—for example, an online book club.
