According to research conducted by the US Department of Labor, 64 percent of Americans who leave their jobs say they do so because they don’t feel appreciated. Something deep within the human psyche cries out for appreciation. When that need is unmet, then job satisfaction will be diminished. Think about what would happen if all workers felt appreciated.
It would create a more positive work environment, people would be more committed to the company, would reach more of their potential, and the level of job satisfaction would rise. Dr. Paul White and I point the way, in our newest book: The 5 Languages of Appreciation in the Workplace. We believe that one person can start the process.
