The Power of Gratitude

Gratitude is the state of being thankful, yet too often we don’t express gratitude because we’re afraid of being taken advantage of or it being perceived as inauthentic. However studies have shows that when gratitude was expressed from their bosses, 83% of employees saw it as a sign of strength, and when companies implemented a strategic recognition program they saw engagement increase by 71%.

In this talk, your attendees will learn a wealth of impactful facts from studies on gratitude, and furthermore why WHY recognition is so powerful. They’ll hear about the top leaders who are adopting gratitude practice with their employees and take with them some simple, actionable tools that they can implement immediately

You’ll also love hearing Andrew’s journey as he built his company Tribute, a tool to more easily express gratitude digitally, and his insight into harnessing it for workplace cultures.

The bottom line is that great relationships keep us happier and healthier, and since 25% of our lives are spent in the workplace, why not build a culture that is both energizing and fulfilling.
