Today is Veteran’s Day. It’s a day when people and organizations across the country take time out of their busy schedules to recognize the service of the men and women who served in our armed forces.
We understand and appreciate the importance of veterans in protecting our country and our freedom, so we honor them by saying thank you and acknowledging their contributions. Veterans and active duty members alike are motivated and inspired by the words of thanks from others. The recognition they receive contributes to the satisfaction they receive from doing their jobs.
What if employees viewed their jobs like our veterans? What if they came to work each day understanding that their contribution was a part of the bigger picture? What if they got satisfaction out of doing a good job? What if they felt inspired?
Today is a day to honor veterans, but every other day is an opportunity for you to recognize your employees. Practice recognition on Veteran’s Day by sending a thank you card to a local VFW, and every day after that, use recognition and praise to inspire your workforce.
