A good list. Appreciation has been at the top of responses to my research for 25 years. People don't want to be appraised (the old) they want to be appreciated (the new and the sustainable)

Are you getting the best out of your employees?

Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, September 22, 2015 1:22 PM

These practices are true for small businesses, and they are also true in our schools.  A principal must be deliberate in their daily practices in order to retain their best employees.  Quality teachers are critical to school success.  Our high needs schools, in particular, depend on high quality teachers to overcome the external factors students bring to school. Principals in these schools must leverage best practices to retain their best teachers and other staff!

I totally agree

John Rudkin's curator insight, March 4, 2014 4:53 AM

....and so many businesses don't see it this way. 

Debra Walker's curator insight, March 6, 2014 4:23 PM

I recently read an article that was describing corporate culture as lunch provided everyday & free beer on Friday.  If you take away those superficial connections for an employee - which are merely non cash components of a compensation plan and not a long term contributor to organizational culture - an engaged employee will remain committed to excelling in their role and for the organization.


An unengaged employee will be more impacted by that removal, resulting in connecting with that employee becoming even harder to achieve.


Engagement is multi-layered and more complex than being provided a sandwich so that I can continue to work through what should be a period of refreshment called lunchtime.

What do you think of some of these ideas?  Are you using them in your business?

Ian Berry's curator insight, August 28, 2015 1:32 AM

A great list. Those still appraising employees instead of appreciating them are now officially dinosaurs

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, August 28, 2015 2:54 AM

Employee recognition is an important way of ensuring loyalty, faith and trust in an organisation. It is true that the amount of recognition required would vary from person to person. People in leadership positions also need recognition, though not in the form of flattery. Celebrating more often, appreciating and praising employees more, goin on retreats, showing interest in employee's hobbies and interests, 'thank you' cards, colourful certificates, can all help boost employee morale.

One way in which business owners can increase the engagement of their employees, is to look closely at how successful franchise groups help their franchisees to remain engaged with the franchisor's offering, and ensure that their staff are also engaged with the relevant brand.


This excellent article written by the leader of a franchise group, stresses that in any change process it is important to remember and value your employees in all of the changes you make, and it outlines 14 ways his group is approaching the employee engagement challenge in the coming 12 months.

John Michel's curator insight, February 16, 2014 7:36 PM

Just as leadership style can be redefined and perfected, so can -- and should -- a company's culture. As president of a franchisee system, I know it's important to constantly innovate and improve to keep all team members on board, and here are the tips I'm applying to make 2014 a banner year.
