Regardless of how much you like your actual work, the perks of the job or even how much you’re paid – if you don’t feel that your efforts are appreciated chances are you will be feeling dissatisfied.
You don’t need a trophy or a standing ovation from your colleagues – just feeling part of the team and a simple “Thanks” would go a long way.
The fact is that most people will continue working hard even when they don’t enjoy their actual work.
However, the minute that a person doesn’t feel committed to their organisation – they will be looking to leave or worse still – their productivity declines.
Needless to say, you deserve to feel that the time you invest in your workplace is appreciated – after all, you will never get that time back again.
Use the following quiz to determine if workplace appreciation is a problem for you and read on for some advice.
