Sure there are many ways to show appreciation to your employees, but at the end of the day, a strong foundation is needed for employees to feel appreciated. We all need clear guidance and a common understanding of how we work with each other and for our customers.
If this foundation is established – a plethora of additional ways of showing employee appreciation is the icing on the cake.
When we founded Purepost, the first task was to establish our: Vision, Purpose, Mission, Culture, and Values. Without these key ingredients, there is no way we could succeed. This foundation provides employees with an understanding of why the business exists, how we will be successful, and how we’ll treat one another.
Every employee hired exemplifies Purepost’s values. We all adhere to the Values because they are a part of who we are. Our values of integrity, accountability, courage, collaboration, and innovativeness ensure that employees feel supported and valued-a natural environment for the cultivation of appreciation.
