This month we celebrate National Day of Encouragement, which has been shown to reignite company culture, boost productivity, and boost your employees’ moods.
A recent Gallup poll found that 36% of U.S. employees are engaged in their work and workplace. That means for a majority of workers, days are dragging on and they’re feeling uninspired.
Encouragement is especially important in behavioral health because a little boost of encouragement can lift our spirits and keep us moving forward.
So the next time you think about offering extrinsic rewards in the form of compensation, benefits, perks, awards, or career progression – which are all great – consider adding intrinsic encouragement. It’s easy and it’s free.
