Creating a cheerful work environment around the holidays isn’t cliché, it’s becoming increasingly appreciated by employees.
Janice Kaplan, author of ” The Gratitude Diaries,” says making your workplace a supportive haven can build loyalty and inspire people to work harder.
During the holidays, it can be especially memorable to give your employees a meaningful experience and set a positive example as you move into the New Year.
She adds, via LinkedIn:
The most successful executives will be the ones who know how to express gratitude and make people feel comfortable in their surroundings.
If the world feels cruel and your office feels kind, where are you going to want to spend your time?
It doesn’t cost very much to say thank you. For the cost of a lemon tart, you can make people feel appreciated and part of a team that cares about them.
