Gratitude

A recent study found that only 10% of Americans thanked a colleague on any given day and 60% report they have never or rarely expressed gratitude at work. Scientists found that creating a culture of gratitude at your work place pays dividends all year round. The same survey found 93% of workers believe grateful bosses are more likely to succeed. Thank you’s at work have concluded that it boosts happiness, reduces stress and generally improves satisfaction. I would image it can’t hurt the bottom Line either. (INC

Does a happier place  to work impact your culture and bottom line?
