Say thank you!
In a recent survey by recruitment website monster.co.uk, taken by 2000 workers and 500 employers/managers, more than 58% of British workers don’t believe they are thanked enough at work.
Is that surprising? 54% said this made them feel unappreciated and 41% said they felt demotivated as a result of this.
While 75% of Employers recognised that failing to say thank you to employees had a negative effect on staff motivation at work, 41% of the Employers said they realised their staff weren’t thanked enough! And 93% of bosses realise that manners are a vital part of the working environment.
Asked to put a value on compensation for not being thanked, on average employees would want to be paid an extra £1,608 per year, if they receive no thanks! Saying thanks is a cheaper way of keeping your staff (and keeping them happy) it appears!
