Do Remote Employees Want to be Shown Appreciation Differently?

Despite the evidence that appreciation is both desired and beneficial to both employees and businesses, not everyone likes to be shown appreciation in the same ways.   We have found that identifying an individual’s preferred language of appreciation is key to “hit the mark” and not waste time and energy doing something not valued by the recipient. Determining what type of appreciation colleagues want can be discovered by having team members take an assessment to identify both their preferred language of appreciation, as well as the specific actions meaningful to them.
