Musings from the CU Suite

A Sticky Kind of Engagement

Written by Anthony Demangone, Powered by NAFCU

We've seen the statistics before.  Few employees are truly engaged in their jobs

And study after study also shows that showing appreciation for what a colleague does boosts their engagement. They feel valued. What they do matters. 

I saw it in action this week on LinkedIn. One of my connections shared a great story.  Someone put this sticky-note on her desk.

Thank you

In her LinkedIn post, Jesse said that the simple note "made her week." 

We've all felt the new blast of energy that only a compliment or pat on the back can bring. 

Someone took 10 seconds to write a wonderful note. made her week!

It gets you thinking that the power to engage is within all of us.

Let's get busy.
