Employees are working harder and under more stressful conditions in today’s economic climate. As managers and individuals, we can do more to show our appreciation for the efforts of others. A simple, “Thank you” demonstrates that you have noticed someone’s efforts and that you are grateful for the contribution the person has made. Saying, “Thank you” creates a positive work environment, improves morale and builds stronger relationships. Implement the following tips to thank others for their efforts:
- Tell the person specifically what you appreciated and why it was important.
- Be sincere and honest with your thanks. You must be genuinely thankful for the effort the person has made.
- Send a hand-written note for a significant accomplishment and put a copy in the individual’s file.
- Create a habit of thanking at least one person every day.
