Appreciation is a basic, fundamental human need.
Those on our team respond to appreciation expressed through recognition of their good work because it confirms their work is valued.
When they and their work are valued, their satisfaction and productivity rises.
It sounds simple, even basic on many levels.
Praise and recognition are essential to an outstanding work environment.
I can literally feel it when I walk through the door of a jewelry store, and in many ways, so can your clients.
People want to be respected and valued for their contribution to the team.
Everyone feels the need to be recognized as an individual or member of a group and to feel a sense of achievement for work well done.
With that being said, it is important to continually remind ourselves of the impact that timely recognition of achievement can have on our team, and our bottom line.
I have put together a few of my favorite quotes on this subject to do just that.
