    Does your company have a “Thank You culture”?
    A company-wide culture of appreciation has a profound impact on the everyday lives of employees, the quality of your products and services, and the satisfaction of your customers.
    You’ll find evidence of a strong Thank You culture in the way entry- and mid-level employees interact with each other and customers. You’ll see it in how the CEO talks publicly about the company. You’ll see it in employee innovation, retention rates, mentorships, Glassdoor reviews and in how empowered your HR department is.
    In short, a Thank You culture is powerful company-wide.
    But building that Thank You culture doesn’t take a blanket, company-wide approach. It grows on a specific path, starting from the top. Think of it like a tree: the roots need to take hold before the branches can grow. The CEO and senior management team need to be on board before others in the company will adopt appreciation practices.
    Read on for tips on growing your Thank You culture from the top.

    Build a happier workplace culture with these tips!

    Redefine and re-energize your employee engagement goals in 2016 for a happier workplace culture. (Photo via Anthony Quintano, Flickr)

    This year, make goals that naturally build and sustain a happier workplace culture!
    Define, refine and re-energize engagement goals to be clear, simple and fast-working — employees aren’t waiting around to get happy.
    More than two-thirds of U.S. workers still aren’t fully engaged. A Gallup statistic that remained stagnant in 2015 hasn’t budged much in more than a decade.
    “Speed and simplicity” are the top HR priorities, according to Altisource’s Bradford Wilkins, a 2015 Workforce Game Changer. Things like employee feedback and performance evaluations need to keep up with changing needs and expectations.
    “Complex performance reviews that require a nuclear physicist to decipher won’t be tolerated,” Wilkins recently told Forbes.
    Employees of all ages, not just Millennials, need more timely employer feedback to help them advance their “3 C’s” — career, compensation and contentment. In pursuit of better employee support and professional development, Wilkins encourages employers to set goals in five areas (CLEAR):

    1. Career Paths
    2. Learning Objectives
    3. Expectations
    4. Accountabilities
    5. Rewards

    If employees don’t get the feedback they need in those five areas, they’ll leave! “Or even worse, they might stay,” Wilkins says.
    Don’t over complicate your goals for a happier workplace culture! Even simple changes can have a big impact, according to Wilkins.
    “Shifting your mindset, discovering a new way to approach a problem, or making difficult decisions aren’t always comfortable but they are usually easy,” he says. “Avoid the status-quo and phrases like ‘I can’t do that’ or ‘We’ve always done it that way.'”

  • The Future of Workplace Wellness

    Re-energy your workplace wellness activities in 2016!The focus on workplace wellness is here to stay. Healthy employees are more engaged, more productive, and help lower health care costs, so it’s in everyone’s best interest to promote workplace wellness. But did you know that technology and social networking are dramatically changing how we think about and support wellness in the workplace?

    Read on to learn more about these important trends!

    The Impact of Technology and Social Networking on Workplace Wellness

    It’s the combination of technology and social networking that creates healthy employees says Alan Kohll, founder and CEO of TotalWellness. Group support, peer coaching, and social accountability are proven success factors for workplace wellness. Fitness technology allows for immediate feedback and social connection, and it’s that connection that encourages us to keep going and accomplish our goals.

    Dr. Rajiv Kumar, founder and CEO of ShapeUp, notes that technology advances are revolutionizing workplace wellness. In “The Future of Workplace Wellness is Mobile, Social, and Wearable,” he writes that the revolution needs to happen faster.

    “Most corporate wellness programs are still Web-based with no mobile access and rely on old-school tracking devices, such as digital pedometers. But employees themselves are leveraging smartphones, mobile apps, wearable and wireless devices in droves.”

    To be successful, company wellness programs have to get in front of this trend, he writes. Kumar uses his own company—which he’s pleased has many healthy employees—as an example.

    In 2013, ShapeUp rolled out a new wellness platform that enables participants to connect their own mobile apps and devices such as RunKeeper, Fitbit, Bodymedia and Fitlinxx to the company’s wellness platform. The data from their apps and devices automatically goes to a central site so they can view progress, participate in challenges, receive personal feedback, and earn rewards.

    The program provides flexibility—employees can use the apps and devices they prefer—and promotes team-building—people can collaborate in their wellness efforts. And that’s the key, Kumar believes. Technology is a tool to create connections and it’s the connections that keep us going. It’s actually the combination of technology and social networking that will drive the future of success of workplace wellness programs.

    “It’s what we’ve found to be the most powerful ingredient for engaging, effective and sustainable wellness programs.”

    Alan Kohll shares with Evans his tips for creating that winning combination:

    • Create fun team challenges—encourage employees to form teams and use their apps and devices to work together toward a common goal. 
    • Provide incentives to participate—it could be lower health premiums, paid time off, work from home time, or even a free healthy lunch.
    • Make wellness part of company culture—allow breaks for a walk outdoors, or up and down stairs, or just to stretch. Remind workers to set alerts on their devices to remind them.
    • Share results—a board in the break room could post accomplishments, for instance.
    • Keep it voluntary—some employees might not want to join, and that’s their right. Providing wearable devices and making it fun will encourage participation, but it’s not for everybody.

    Furthermore,  Entrepreneur Magazine contributor Lisa Evans, in “Using Wearable Devices to Help Promote Employee Wellness,” writes that ABI Research reports 13 million wearable devices will be integrated into corporate-wellness plans over the next five years.
    Technology and social networking form the future of workplace wellness and innovative employers are on board. Businesses that aren’t, Kumar notes:

    “may find that their employees are already 10,000 steps ahead of them.”

    Don’t fall behind. For healthy employees and a healthy workplace, embrace the new world of workplace wellness!

  • Throw a Holiday Work Party Your Employees Will Love!

    The best holiday work party!

    Throw a holiday work party only if you want to – it should be out of authentic and genuine gratitude. (Photo via woolennium, Flickr)

    Holiday work parties go one of two ways — something the employer has to do, or wants to do, according to writer Jake Kilroy in his Entrepreneur article, “The Nicest Party I’ve Ever Been To: A Christmas Story.”
    Kilroy reflects on one holiday work party he attended years ago while working for a uniform and screen-printing company in California. It was a formal affair at an upscale restaurant. The lavish presentation, expensive dinner and generous open bar totally wowed Kilroy and his coworkers, most of whom were young and accustomed to a casual environment.
    But what stood out most to Kilroy was how much his employer wanted to throw the party.
    The company owners “welcomed us like family” at the door and asked employees to write down their favorite holiday memory on a piece of paper. Later, after dessert, employees took turns reading aloud a coworker’s name and favorite memory. As an employee’s favorite memory was shared, the company owners invited the employee to get up and choose a wrapped present underneath the Christmas tree in the dining room, in addition to a $50 gift card.
    The company owners worked hard to make it a special party, and it was effective. Kilroy writes, “I had never had such warmth and respect at a job before.”
    We’re in the peak season for companies throwing a holiday work party for their employees — most parties happen before the New Year, but for many in the service industry, the season continues through the end of January.
    How can your company replicate the warm experience Kilroy had? Read on for tips to make your holiday work party a meaningful and appreciated event your employees will want to attend.

  • The Power of Workplace Generosity in Action

    #GivingTuesday shows the power of workplace generosity

    Celebrate Giving Tuesday by promoting workplace generosity!

    Today, Giving Tuesday, recognize the amazing power of workplace generosity!
    In Fort Wayne, Indiana, a strong sense of workplace generosity has rallied coworkers around a good cause.
    The local United Way reports a significant increase in donations over last year at this time, with several workplace charitable giving programs doubling or tripling their gifts from previous years.
    For the workplaces that saw big jumps in their charitable giving to United Way, what made the difference? Support from management and communal generosity fostered through peer-to-peer conversations.
    “They demonstrate what can be accomplished when we all work together towards a common goal,” David Nicole, president and CEO of United Way of Allen County, told the Journal Gazette last week.
    In previous years, employee giving to United Way at one company had been handled anonymously through a lobby drop box — truly a missed opportunity to build community through workplace generosity!
    That’s what Giving Tuesday is all about: building community. Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday are for scoring deals. Now it’s time to give back. Giving Tuesday the final unofficial post-Thanksgiving holiday and kicks off the spirit of generosity through the December holidays.
    This Giving Tuesday, consider the benefits of building a culture of workplace generosity — and why it matters all year, not just during the holidays.

  • How One Company Is Putting the Thanks in Thanksgiving

    putting the thanks in Thanksgiving gThankYou

    REI is putting the thanks in Thanksgiving by closing Black Friday and encouraging people to enjoy the outdoors instead of shopping. (Image via REI)

    In a brave and brilliant move, REI President and CEO Jerry Stritzke is closing all 143 REI stores on Black Friday and starting a new Thanksgiving tradition for his outdoor apparel and gear company: encouraging employees and customers to spend the day enjoying the outdoors.
    It’s called #OptOutside.
    Why the change? Stritzke decided it was time to draw a line against the excess commercialization of Thanksgiving.
    “It’s an act where we’re really making a very clear statement of our values,” Stritzke told USA TODAY.
    According to USA TODAY’s Hadley Malcolm, REI will not have any Black Friday promotions — even online orders will wait for Saturday processing! Just a small handful of REI’s 12,000 employees will be on call, while the rest get a paid day off.
    #OptOutside is a bold and authentic statement that exemplifies the REI company brand. REI is putting the thanks back in Thanksgiving!
    The gThankYou! team believes that Thanksgiving is an enduring tradition because of its focus on family, expressions of gratitude, and time spend counting the good things in life. In the workplace, Thanksgiving is about appreciating the importance of employees, customers and suppliers to us and to our company.

    Will YOu be Putting the Thanks in Thanksgiving this Year?

    What can you do to put the thanks in Thanksgiving in your workplace?
    It’s not hard! Simply support your community and involve others:

    • Contribute to local food pantries
    • Volunteer to serve the Thanksgiving meal at a shelter or deliver Meals On Wheels
    • Pack donation baskets for local distribution at your church or community center
    • Provide employees with holiday time off

    Most importantly, thank everyone who helps your business succeed every day. Emphasize your gratitude by sharing the centerpiece of the holiday meal with employees: give gThankYou! Turkey Gift Certificates.
    It’s not too late to share the thoughtful gift of a turkey this Thanksgiving!

    Step 1: Shop Where You Want

    Choose any grocery store chain store that honors Manufacturer Coupons — anywhere in the United States!
    Your Turkey Gift Certificate is a Manufacturer Coupon, just like the cents-off coupons you’re used to — it’s just higher in value. As long as the store honors Manufacturer Coupons, they have the ability to accept your gThankYou! Turkey Gift Certificate. All major grocery chains that accept coupons, honor gThankYou Gift Certificates.
    The only stores that do not honor gThankYou! Gift Certificates are those that do not accept any Manufacturer Coupons such as Costco, Sam’s Club, specialty stores such as HoneyBaked Ham, and the Aldi chain.
    We do not recommend discount general merchandise stores such as Walmart or Target.
    If your favorite local market doesn’t accept coupons but wants to honor yours, have them call us and we’ll be happy to redeem it for them. Each gThankYou! Turkey Gift Certificate has sophisticated safety features built into the paper that allows them to be validated easily over the phone.

    Step 2: Select Any Brand, Any Preparation

    Your Turkey Gift Certificate is good for any brand of whole turkey, any size and any preparation — that includes fresh, frozen, heritage breed, cooked, smoked, free-range and more. Your choice!
    Your Certificate is a Manufacturer Coupon so if you choose a turkey that’s more expensive than the face value of your Certificate, that’s OK. You just pay the different at the register. If you choose a turkey that costs less than the value of the Coupon, you receive the gift of the turkey and do not receive change.
