WE NEED MORE THANK-YOU’S AT WORK!
Getting Ahead in Business has worked with CEO’s, Presidents, Owners, and Managers to
increase their sales. As Founder and SaIes Consultant I have found that many do not use the phrase that they should use every day to their employees: “THANKS” or “THANK-YOU.”
This is a great way to show your appreciation to an employee who deserves it. Also, it is a great way to get more production from your employees. Gratitude can definitely benefit the company.
A survey has shown that a majority of workers believe they would respond positively to employer gratitude. 75% said they would work harder for a more grateful boss while
60% stated that they would feel better about themselves if their boss expressed gratitude to them. Hence, we need more thank-you’s at work.
I once asked an owner of a company whom I was consulting for if he had ever thanked his employees. The owner’s answer was that he thanked them with a paycheck. I told him that this was a ridiculous answer, impressing in him that thanks or thank you goes a long way.
BOSSES, GET WITH IT! If you are not acknowledging your employees’ good work with a thank you, you should start today by extending your appreciation through a verbal gesture or hand shake to those of your employees who deserve it. You will definitely see a difference in your workers’ performance and morale. THANKS & THANK-YOU!
