“Being appreciated is one of the great motivators on the job, even better than money.”

Janice Kaplan, writing in the Wall Street Journal

Dave Tighe recently posted a column on LinkedIn that highlights the two-way nature of employee engagement (The Two-Way Street of Employee Engagement). Dave simply recognizes that professional relationships still involve human beings, so both parties involved have to want the relationship to work for engagement to happen.

Now along comes an article by Janice Kaplan in the Wall Street Journal that finds this disconnection:

“In a 2013 survey of 2,000 Americans on gratitude sponsored by the John Templeton Foundation, some 80% agreed that receiving gratitude makes them work harder, but only 10% managed to express gratitude to others every day. “Thanks”—whether sent up, down or sideways—was rarely heard.”

Here is our two-way street again, applied to one key aspect of engagement: Showing appreciation.

And there isn’t much traffic on this particular street, if only 10% of respondents could meet the easy standard of finding some good work to acknowledge publicly every day.

Yikes. One of the easiest and most effective employee engagement tools is completely underutilized.

This is something every manager can fix today, tomorrow, this week at the latest. Every one of your team members is performing well in some aspect of their job. Find out what those are and start expressing your appreciation:

  • A word of thanks that references the particular accomplishment, delivered near the time when the work was done.
  • Public acknowledgement of particular accomplishments in every staff meeting, in team-distributed e-mails and the like.
  • Invitations to team members to publicly acknowledge the work of their peers (or their own subordinates). Some teams call these “pay it forwards” or other similar labels, in an effort to embed the activity as a habit within the group.

How may we help team CTAAs the team’s leader, you do have the responsibility to make sure acknowledgement are honestly given, for work that was actually done. Engagement grows where appreciation is objective, truly earned and heartfelt. People will disengage if the kudos are too narrowly shared, and not clearly tied to achievement.

So make it a priority today, tomorrow, this week to find occasions to share your own appreciation for work well done. Set a goal to find and deliver a moment of appreciation for everyone that works for you, and for the colleagues that do so much to make your own team more productive.

Here is our two-way street again, applied to one key aspect of engagement: Showing appreciation. And there isn’t much traffic on this particular street, if only 10% of respondents could meet the easy standard of finding some good work to acknowledge publicly every day.
