The Power of Praise: Recognizing Colleague Success
The definition of praise is to express warm approval or admiration. The person on the receiving end of this kind act is often appreciative and happy. For years Human Resource Professionals have been analyzing the impact praise has in the workplace. For examples, check out the Training Journal's article on "The Power of Praise and Recognition" and Gallop's Workplace article, "In Praise of Praising Your Employees". The conclusion seems to be unanimous. Employees who receive praise on an ongoing basis have increased engagement and productivity.
