It’s great to give thanks – especially around the office! Research has shown that expressing gratitude in the workplace can result in the following positive effects:

  • Makes employees feel valued
  • Makes employees feel more confident
  • Strengthens relationships
  • Improves morale
  • Increases productivity (employees who feel appreciated work harder and longer)

So don’t wait for the Thanksgiving holiday. Kick things off now by thanking your coworkers, bosses, and employees for the good work they do! Complimenting your coworkers and giving thanks is an easy way to make the office happier, healthier, and more effective.
