Your employees deserve to feel appreciated every day of the week. As a leader, you know that each team member performs vital tasks integral to the success of the business. When workers feel valued, morale is high and they work harder. One way to make your employees feel appreciated is by listening to them. Focus on what they are saying, without distractions, and ask questions to validate what they have said. A simple thank you goes a long way, so don’t forget to say it for mundane tasks, as well as for larger successes. And remember to offer regular recognition in the form of an occasional bonus or giving credit where credit is due at meetings.
