Work in this day and age is stressful, and stress has become second nature to most of us. Most careers we choose have stress built into them. Well then, since there is no escape from it, how do we make sure that mental health does not take a back seat as we advance in our respected careers?
According to Maslow's hierarchy of needs, psychological needs such as recognition, respect, self-esteem are the most fundamental human necessities. As human beings, we are hard-wired to desire appreciation, affirmation, and support from family, friends and colleagues.
According to research, our bodies release oxytocin when we feel loved and appreciated in any form. Not just that, but the giver feels the same biological reaction as that of the receiver. Research has also indicated that companies that show gratitude to their employees perform far better than their counterparts. Hence, in this tumultuous work environment, employee appreciation is not only a sure shot way to increase productivity, it can also help boost the retention of employees, build greater employee satisfaction and have a clear discount in stress. Workplace recognition is an important component that helps make your employees feel valued at work.
As Maya Angelou firmly asserts, "People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."
Keeping that in mind, The Lush Box understands the significance of workplace recognition and has curated unique gifts for your employees that will positively motivate them and improve workplace performance and morale.
