Research update – Some 16% never thanked by boss

Over three-quarters of employees report that being thanked for their efforts at work by their employer is important or extremely important to them. Yet a survey by motivation company Maritz found that 16% of staff are never thanked by bosses. A further 16% said they are thanked once a year or less. More than half of employees (57%) said that this type of recognition would encourage them to stay longer with their current employer, while 52% reported that it would prompt them to put in more effort at work.
