Different levels in the organization should deliver appreciation because each has a unique message and meaning:

  1. Peer to peer: Coworkers thank others either within or outside their own team. This is especially important when teams are geographically dispersed or don’t see each other regularly.
  2. Manager to employee: Managers are most familiar with their employees’ roles. Employees like to know their manager understands and values their contributions.
  3. Senior leadership: This level is typically more general, relating to group efforts. But senior leaders can also highlight extraordinary effort. Above all, it demonstrates they see and recognize individual and team contributions.

Appreciation goes a long way to improve motivation, job satisfaction, retention — and even the bottom line.
