A simple note or a formal letter, specific and sincere words of appreciation are an incredibly effective way to support and refuel your employees. Indeed, many employees work hard for companies and end-up leaving those firms because they feel undervalued and unappreciated for their labors. The simple action of acknowledging the hard work and dedication of these trusted workers can go a long way towards keeping them at your company and keeping them productive and motivated. And that’s a very good thing for any business – large or small.
Imagine the surprise and sometimes even delight when your workers get a signed letter from the CEO, VP or even their own manager, thanking and recognizing their hard work and efforts in a written form. Some of these appreciation letters will even be displayed at your workers’ desks, and may stay with them for their entire working careers. Never underestimate the power of encouragement that can come from such a simple gesture and action – employee appreciation is one of the best and most effective strategies for keeping your strongest workers engaged and motivated.

It’s WOW Wednesday! HR leaders, execs, and managers: How do you WOW the people who go above and beyond for you in your business? Or, how have you been WOWed?
Today’s WOW Wednesday comes from Cheryl.
She says: ”We get senior management involved when we present our awards. I also take pictures of the employee holding the award to share company wide. It is a lot of fun. We finally have our first employee celebrating 20 years, so it is an exciting time!”
Mike Anderson, Head of Terryberry’s Kansas City Office, talks about his opportunity to lead a round-table discussion with a group of managers on why employee recognition is important and how to do it right.
“To me, work is an opportunity to be original,” says Mike.
