On a scale of 0 – 10, how much appreciation do you feel from your supervisor? How about your co-workers? Employees and volunteers perform better if they feel appreciated. It is not enough to express appreciation, it must be expressed in a way that is meaningful to the employee. Here are the five languages of appreciation: Words of affirmation, Quality time, Acts of service (that is offering to help out), Tangible gifts, and appropriate Physical touch. Words of appreciation may make one employee feel appreciated, but be rather empty to another. Learn the language of each employee and change the climate of your workplace.
