Peggy Minnig | Employee Appreciation | Ohio Business Podcast
Peggy Minnig joins Dave on this episode of unsuitable on Rea Radio to talk about employee appreciation strategies and why businesses should embrace a culture that promotes employee appreciation. Listen Now!

Take a moment to think about this question: When was the last time that you showed appreciation toward your employees? If you’re struggling to answer that question, you may have identified a problem that could end up hurting your company in the long-run.

Peggy Minnig, a principal in Rea’s Lima office, believes that an employee who feels appreciated will reward the company with increased productivity, greater employee satisfaction, renewed loyalty, and improved retention.

Appreciation is a Fundamental Human Need

It doesn’t matter if you’re an incredible business owner – without a great team in place to maintain the day-to-day responsibilities of the business, you won’t have a business for very long. And, well… if you don’t show appreciation for your employees, you may not have a great team for very long.

If you want to retain valuable employees and increase productivity, listen and learn:

  • Why peer recognition is just as important as manager or principal recognition.
  • Why you should praise people immediately, preferably in public, when you see an opportunity to do so.
  • How you can remind yourself and others to show appreciation on a regular basis.
