What Sweet Appreciation Looks Like.
As it turns out, it doesn’t take all that much to keep employees in their “sweet spot”. Glassdoor (an online career site) found that 80 % of employees are motivated to work harder when their boss shared a little sugar (a.k.a. showed appreciation for their work).
In addition, bosses who express gratitude help keep workers from looking elsewhere for their kudos (and their paychecks).
So what might do the trick...keeping an employee feeling satisfied, with their loyalty intact? A little goes a long way, as findings suggest that it doesn’t take all that much to go from “nah" to “yah". In fact, 46 % of employees would feel more appreciated if their boss gave them an unexpected treat, including such things as a snack or a "thank you" note (pssst…. Sugarwish is both!). Sweet!
