Sorry Leaders, but today is just not your day. We will celebrate your day another time.
Today is EMPLOYEE APPRECIATION DAY! And it is important that you, as a leader, take some time and effort to show a little appreciation for your employees for all that they have done to propel the organisation forward.
In a recent study, 45% of the the people working in Singapore are unhappy in their job. 54% are disengaged, and 12% would choose to leave their job because they felt unappreciated at work.
With the need to constantly stay competitive in the industry, organisations are finding innovative ways to create a positive working environment and engage employees on a regular basis. Evidence has shown that when people are happy working in a job that they find meaningful and are appreciated for their contributions, it would result in higher productivity, enhanced creativity and better problem solving ability. At the same time, employees feel more connected with the company, thus reducing employee turnover.
