“The Simple Truths of Appreciation and Recognition—Low Cost or No-cost Ideas to Keep Employees Engaged”

In these tough economic times of having to do more with less, it is critical to find other ways besides money to keep employees engaged. Sixty-five percent of American workers said they received NO appreciation all last year for the good work they had done, yet the second most important thing people want from their jobs is full appreciation. In this inspiring session Barbara will share ten simple truths of appreciation as well as dozens of creative ways, at little or no cost, to keep employees happy and productive and which they can immediately apply in their work and in their lives. The beauty of appreciation is that we can each give it to anyone we choose for no cost except our awareness and a few moments of our time.
