It’s been a few years – OK way too many years – but I can still clearly remember how I felt on the first day of school after summer vacation. There were always butterflies in my stomach as I walked up to school wondering: who’s my new teacher? Will he or she be nice? Will the other kids like me? Will I make lots of new friends?

​You've read the stats. Spent late nights pouring over countless articles. Administered survey after employee engagement survey, only to find that everything echoes what perhaps cosmetics entrepreneur Mary Kay said best: “There are two things people want more than sex and money: recognition and praise.”

The votes are in. A big thank you means more to employees than big bucks.

But, in spite of all your toil, you're probably still searching for just what exactly your individual employees crave recognition and praise for? What recognized action or attribute really makes them tick? Decades of human behavioral research at Gallup have finally pinpointed a factor that's strong enough to turn all of your employee disengagement frowns upside down!

Have a Happier New Year - Recognizing What Makes You Successful

It is that time of year again where we reflect on the past and look forward to the new. The economy is improving, allowing organizations to refocus their attentions on growing their companies and getting back on their feet after several difficult years.

One of the causalities for many businesses during the last few years has been a loss of trust and connection with their teams. Every company had to dig deep and adjust to their circumstances, and that required asking a lot of their people. Downsizing, taking on more responsibilities, and doing more with less were all common themes. Now that things are improving, businesses are turning their attention back to re-building their cultures, re-visiting their values, and finding ways to re-engage their team.
