“People don't leave jobs, they leave bosses”.There is a lot of truth behind this saying, Most often this happens not because they are unpaid or overworked, rather its because they feel undervalued and unappreciated. Most of us experience a wonderful and rewarding feeling when someone recognizes us for a meaningful contribution or even for a very small effort, Most people enjoy that warm feeling that comes when we feel special, when we know that we matter. When we feel valued and appreciated, we feel energized, more productive, feel connected, and do our best work. When we feel that the people around us care about us and value our contributions and characteristics, we engage more. When we receive validation and sincere appreciation, we are encouraged to put our best to work. This kind of environment encourages us to be more productive and to feel more subjectively connected to our work and to those around us. When we feel valued, we typically enjoy the people around us and develop positive thoughts and feelings about the place where we work. 65% of people in the workplace state that they receive no appreciation according to the statistics of the past year and 64% of people who left their jobs stated lack of appreciation as the number one reason. Lack of appreciation not only affects us at the workplace but also affects relationships like marriages, families, and friendships. I wonder how many divorces would be traced due to the lack of appreciation and ungratefulness by one of the spouse. Employee appreciation creates unique company culture and strengthens boss-employee relationships. A US Department ... of Labor research study concluded that the number one reason people leave their jobs is that they don’t feel appreciated. When employees don’t feel valued for who they are or what they bring to the workplace, they disengage and often leave. Disengaged employees have a negative impact on the work environment. In positive psychology research, appreciation is strongly and consistently associated with greater happiness. Appreciation helps people feel more positive emotions, enjoy good experiences, improve their health, deal with adversity, and build stronger relationships. Appreciation expressed through acknowledgement of our good work confirms our work is valued. When our work is valued, our satisfaction and performance rises and we feel purposeful. Feeling genuinely appreciated makes us feel secure, which is what empowers us to do our best work. If a person takes the time to express their heart-felt appreciation for something we have done, it makes us feel good about what we do. It builds our self-confidence, self-esteem and our entire self-image. It gives us energy and motivation to work harder and do more. When we don’t feel valued we are doubtful about our performance. We may even worry if we are at risk of losing our job. We lose our sense of purpose if we believe what we do isn’t good enough to be noticed and appreciated. Purpose is powerful!
