We hope these team and employee appreciation quote examples have inspired you to use your words to appreciate your employees.

Building empowered, engaged, and inspired teams of employees take more than spreading words of appreciation. It takes leaders with the right attitude and action to create a culture of appreciation.

Recognize and reward early and often.

While it is intuitive that people who are recognized for their work will stay around longer, BI WORLDWIDE’s internal research proves the point. There is a strong correlation between recognition, reward, and a marked reduction in turnover.

Recognize someone once and you make an impact. Turnover among those who receive at least one recognition is 26.2% compared to 43.9% among people who have not received any recognition throughout the six months of our research study.

Recognize that person multiple times and you increase your impact. Employee turnover decreases as frequency of recognitions increases. A 10% reduction in turnover is seen among those who receive very infrequent recognition compared to those who receive much more frequent recognition.

Recognize and reward that person to maximize the impact on turnover. Turnover is 4x higher among employees with the lowest number of recognitions with an award compared to employees receiving the highest number of recognitions with an award
