When we value employees….

July 5, 2018 © Copyright Glomacs

Who doesn’t feel to be appreciated and believe that they are of value to others.  Each one of us can contribute to creating a positive environment where all who work for and with us know that who they are and what they do matters and makes a difference. Appreciation in the workplace can help employees understand how much their peers, their manager, and the organization, value employees.

When an employee feels valued, they gain confidence, feel good, and eagerly contribute towards organizational goals.  An employee’s reaction to their work environment impacts their attitude and how they feel about themselves.  The good feeling, they get from knowing that they are valued gets passed on to other people in their lives.  Creating a culture where employees feel valued will pay-off for you, the organization, and for your employees in a big way.

“Employees who feels that their organization is concerned about them as a whole person – not just number – are more productive, more satisfied and more fulfilled. Happy employees mean happy customers, which contributes positively to the bottom line.” — Anne M. Mulcahy, Former Chairperson and CEO of Xerox Corporation

Surveys by  Boston Consulting Group in 2014 covering  over 200,000 people around the world researched what employees care about at work.  Being appreciated at work was found as the number one factor for the surveyed employees.

A survey by Glassdoor found that almost 80 percent of the employees says they’re motivated to work harder when the organization they work for shows appreciation for their inputs at work. When workers receive gratitude for their work, turnover rates decline dramatically.  Almost half of the surveyed employees said they would stay longer at their company if they felt more appreciation from their organization.  Clearly, there is a big connection between contented employees and a healthy bottom line.

How do we create a culture where we value employees?

  • Let them know you appreciate who they are and what they do

  • Make sure that they know the part they play in achieving the organization’s goals

  • Connect with them and try to gain an understanding of their past, their present, and their goals for the future

  • Engage them in conversations that impact your organizational goals

  • Ask for your employee’s feedback, ideas, and opinions

  • Help them grow by offering connections, support, teaching skills, mentoring, new opportunities and empower them

  • Trust them and allow them a sense of pride by giving them personal ownership of results

  • Be Accountable and follow through on the commitments you make to them

  • Offer warm welcome to new employees and set the stage for a great first step

  • Be honest and genuine to them, they will be more creative and open and, as a result, do their best work

From your experience, what would you like to add to the list to create a culture in which every employee feels valued?
