The Gratitude Effect! Unleashing the Power of Recognition & Appreciation at Work

Today’s workplaces are full of cynicism, paranoia and burnout. But the best organizations foster hope, trust, compassion and cooperation because their leaders build a culture that which employees can thrive. When it comes to creating a healthier, higher-performing organization it’s no surprise that culture is the thing that matters most. To be sure, if carefully designed, culture is
the difference between success and failure; engagement and alienation; health and sickness; joy and drudgery. But here’s the deal, very few HR leaders know how to design a culture that actually works in the “next normal”. Building a great place to work
doesn’t have to be complicated; it starts with your employees. Leaders across an organization can learn invaluable skills for understanding employee well-being and how it impacts the culture at work. The research is clear—positive and inclusive environments are performance enhancers. They are characterized by higher productivity, less turnover and more resilient cultures. Organizations with happy employees outperform the competition by as much as 202%. Happy and engaged employees are committed and passionate about the work they do, resulting in higher performance and lower turnover rates. Leaders who know how to cultivate positive emotion tap into an endless well of psychological capital – hope, optimism, confidence, resilience,
and belief – that has the power to keep people and teams innovating, creating value and more successful even in tough times.
Attend and learn the real, tangible, and actionable steps to building a better workplace culture, using a proven method for culture change.
