Article of Interest: Gratitude At Work

Gratitude is not just a "feel good" emotion when it comes to organizational life. When an employee believes his or her superiors are grateful for his or her work, the employee will benefit by having an improved sense of worth to the organization. This improved sense of worth can lead to performance improvement, thereby benefiting the organization.

Hint: A person expressing gratitude benefits from that expression, which also may positively impact the organization. For instance, research has shown that persons who are genuinely grateful may be more optimistic, experience improved health, and perhaps even have extended life spans.

Gratefulness matters. Find out why here.
