Experts continue to communicate to firms the importance of employee recognition and ensuring workers feel appreciated at their offices.
Experts continue to communicate to firms the importance of employee recognition and ensuring workers feel appreciated at their offices. However, what's the reasoning behind this?
Feeling value promotes engagement with one's job. One reason, according to Psych Central, is that possessing a sense of being valuable can counteract the stress that accompanies any position, as well as cut down on absenteeism.
Companies can promote this feeling of well-being by fostering an organizational culture that promotes communication, professional training and support, along with fairness and a shared set of values, the news source explains.
"To improve retention and employee's feeling valued, companies can assess the organizations current degree of wellness, determine important company values and norms and lead by example and through communications with employees," Psych Central writes.
Firms can also promote a positive work environment by implementing employee incentive and recognition programs to make sure staff members know when they've done a great job.
