ABOUT

Whether your organization is remote, hybrid, or in-person, one thing remains true: employees need to feel valued and appreciated to be fully engaged. The headlines over the past year have illustrated how challenging work has been for employees. They feel overworked and burnt out. And many of them have more job options than ever before. With the threat of a “Great Resignation” looming, organizations can’t afford for their already frazzled employees to feel overlooked and unrecognized. 

 

Join us for a thought-provoking day as we explore how organizations and leaders can unleash the power of appreciation for their employees. Learn how gratitude can ensure your employees feel truly valued which results in improved employee engagement and retention.
