A simple ‘thank you’ will help you attract and retain talent? 

"On a given day, only 10 percent of people say “thank you” to colleagues—and 60 percent of people report that they never or very rarely express gratitude at work. So OpenIDEO posed a challenge for the best ideas on how  express gratitude in the workplace. Over 300 contributions later they announced the winners.

Source: challenges.openideo.com

You can have a look at the winning ideas here, but the real winners are the employers that are doing something about the sad state of gratitude. In addition to lower turnover, research by Harvard and Wharton shows a simple 'thank you' can boost productivity by over 50%.

The article points to a number of great research papers and articles about gratitude. Here are a few quick tips for getting started:

  • Start at the top; people want to hear it from the boss
  • Thank the people who do thankless work
  • Quality and authenticity trump quantity
  • Gratitude isn’t one-size-fits-all
  • Make it personal

And there's a bonus in expressing gratitude. It feels good. 

Thank you for reading this post!

The fake news about Millennials…Let’s get the facts straight 

Maybe many of the assumptions we make about Gen Y aren’t unique to this generation. Maybe they’re specific to young people in general, writes Amanda Ruggeri

Source: www.bbc.com

Garbage in, garbage out as they say, and in terms of designing for millennials, your workplace may be the garbage. That Gen Y is so different really is fake news. Remember beanbag chairs, lava lamps, and nahru jackets? What if workplaces had been completely redesigned to fit young boomers? 

 

This article debunks nearly all we think we know about Millennials. Compared to other generations:

  • They work harder
  • They are more respectful of authority
  • They stay on the job longer

 

Though not covered in this article, other research shows they are not more collaborative, tech savvy, or social.

 

Critically, in terms of workplace design, like every generation in the past, they will change throughout their lives. Already, the trends are showing the eldest among them are buying cars, having kids, and moving to the suburbs to raise them.

 

The bottom line is, it's time to stop making assumptions about how people are , get out there and talk to them about what they want and need, and design with the knowledge that they will change over time.
