In today’s video blog, CAI’s Advice and Resolution team member, Renee’ Watkins, shares helpful information to keep your employees engaged by giving them a personal thank you. Renee’ starts by reminding employers and HR professionals that everyone likes feeling appreciated, especially when the gesture is genuine and personal.
She says employees who feel their efforts are being noticed will likely go the extra mile for their organization. In the video Renee’ shares that research shows that one of the most effective acts of appreciation comes in the form of a hand-written note. Notes should be sent right after an employee accomplishment.
Renee’ gives advice for making hand-written notes special and effective in the video. She also imparts several examples of messages you can write to employees for different reasons, such as successfully handling change or paying great attention to detail.
If writing a thank you note is just simply not your style and not going to happen, Renee’ encourages you to find another way to show your employees appreciation for their contributions. She says what may seem to be a small gesture, requiring little effort, can often translate into a significant moment of positive recognition that will be remembered by your employees long after the event has passed. She ends the video with additional ways you can reward your team members without breaking your budget.
