Manager’s Corner/Employee Compliments A Solid Investment

by Liz Weber

When was the last time you gave a co-worker a compliment? When was the last time you even acknowledged a routine task they do? Now ask yourself, when did I last receive a compliment?
If it’s been awhile, it may be time to focus some energies that way. By simply saying “Congratulations” or “Nice Job” to a co-worker, your words help them by reducing stress, increasing their sense of worth, enhancing communication, and creating a greater sense of team support. That’s quite a return for a small one or two word investment.
