Showing Appreciation Can Help with Employee Retention

Joe Malicdem

One of the greatest challenges companies face today is finding enough good workers to fill positions. A shortage of skilled workers has even caused hiring to become more competitive. Want your best workers to stay? 

When it comes to keeping good employees, one of the best ways to attract and keep great talent is to show your employees that you appreciate them. A creative and economical way to say thank you is through a simple gesture. More companies are putting a little flavor in their gesture by sending unique, high-quality edible products. A few ways to do this is though:

  1. Digital gift cards 
  2. Artful edible arrangements
  3. Customized gifts 
  4. Recognizing birthdays and other occasions 

Sometimes managers forget to do this, but showing appreciation for the hard work and effort of their employees goes a long way in keeping them happy and committed to their job. Employees who feel appreciated are less likely to leave than those who don't. It’s that simple. Ultimately, it’s the small gestures of gratitude that increase productivity and job satisfaction among your workforce.
