Global Wellbeing Week: Celebrating Valued Employees

Global Wellbeing Week is an annual event that brings organisations worldwide together to prioritise their employees’ health, happiness, and overall wellbeing. On this significant occasion, we would like to emphasise the importance of acknowledging and celebrating the contributions of our esteemed employees. And we will give you some insights on sustaining a culture of appreciation within your organisation.

Let’s start with some statistics on employee appreciation and staff retention.

  • Employees who feel appreciated are 20% more likely to stay with their current organization (Gallup).
  • 79% of employees who quit their jobs cited a lack of appreciation as one of the main reasons for leaving (Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM).
  • 69% of employees say they would work harder if they felt their efforts were better recognized and appreciated (Bonusly).

Embracing Employee Appreciation

The impact of employee appreciation cannot be overemphasised as it is one of the practices that would bring out the best in your team members. When a person is appreciated and recognised, they feel like a valued member of the team and subsequently, are willing to give their best to the team.

Some of the impacts of employee appreciation are:

  • Boosts employee morale.
  • Enhances employee engagement.
  • Fosters a positive work culture.
  • Improves retention and reduces turnover.

Recognizing and appreciating employees for their hard work and dedication is essential for creating a positive and productive work environment. It boosts employee morale, enhances engagement, fosters a positive work culture, improves retention, inspires excellence, and promotes employee wellbeing. By valuing our employees, we create a foundation for organizational success and create an atmosphere where everyone can thrive.

Nurturing a Culture of Appreciation

A culture of appreciation plays a vital role in enhancing employee wellbeing and creating a positive work environment. Here are some key strategies to nurture a culture of appreciation within your organization:

  • Recognize and Celebrate Achievements
  • Encourage Peer-to-Peer Recognition
  • Provide Regular Feedback
  • Incorporate Appreciation into Wellness Programs

Organizations can have a positive impact on employee wellbeing, job satisfaction, and overall engagement by cultivating a culture of appreciation. Recognizing and appreciating employees for their contributions fosters a sense of purpose, motivation, and belonging, creating a supportive work environment where employees thrive. It’s important to keep in mind that showing appreciation isn’t a one-time thing, but rather a continual effort that supports the overall wellbeing of employees and the success of the organization.

Personalized Appreciation Gestures

Personalized appreciation gestures play a crucial role in enhancing employee wellbeing by creating a sense of value, recognition, and connection.

You can incorporate gestures like handwritten notes, personalized gifts, or tailored rewards as a way of personalizing appreciation for your team members.

Team Appreciation Activities

Engaging in team appreciation activities is a highly effective approach to improve employee wellbeing. It encourages a sense of closeness, collaboration, and belonging within the workplace. Such activities enable employees to gather together and feel valued as a group, fostering social connections, enhancing collaboration, and strengthening trust and teamwork..

Recognition and Rewards

Employee wellbeing can be significantly improved through rewards and recognitions. Such initiatives boost motivation and engagement, raise self-esteem and confidence, foster a stronger bond between the employee and the organization, reduce stress and burnout, promote continuous learning and development, and encourage positive work culture and collaboration. By implementing effective rewards and recognition programs, organizations can significantly improve employee wellbeing and create a thriving work environment.
