When was the last time you thanked your employees?
If it has been a while, Thanksgiving is the perfect time to engage employees with an attitude of gratitude.
Incorporating appreciation into an organization’s culture is probably one of the most effective ways to positively impact performance and retention. And the best part? It’s free.
The job description was inaccurate, the mobile application was time-consuming, the receptionist was rude, the interviewer was 45 minutes late and HR never communicated that you didn’t get the job—or why.
