Employee engagement is a huge concern to business and organizational leaders. Why? Because numerous global studies have shown its impact on staff turnover, productivity, profitability, and numerous other factors related to healthy organizational functioning.  Authentic appreciation (as opposed to traditional employee recognition) has been found by Gallup and other international studies to be a core factor which significantly influences employee engagement.

Employee recognition programs, on the other hand, have proven to be ineffective in raising job satisfaction and increasing employee engagement, and cost companies millions of dollars.

The 5 languages of appreciation have been used by over 500,000 employees and managers worldwide, with the resources being available in 18 languages and currently utilized in over 60 countries, demonstrating their cross-cultural relevance and applicability.
