Inspire Employee Loyalty - Celebrate Your Employees

Written by  Duane Bailey

Looking for a way to inspire greater employee loyalty? Boost overall morale? Or make your employee experience unforgettable?

Celebrate your employees. Share good news. Engage them in the conversation.

A friend of mine was recently promoted. Promoting from within is good news, whenever it happens. It’s even better news in organizations where a majority of the newly created positions are filled from outside. And it’s really great news in an economy suffering from an unemployment rate of about 9%.

I was fascinated with the story of what happened when her employer released an organizational notice announcing her promotion. Almost immediately, congratulatory emails began pouring in. People whose names she couldn’t recall congratulated her as they passed in the hallway. Well-wishers came by her desk and offered kudos. Everyone was smiling.

The news of her promotion had become a celebration of sorts. It is a story that speaks to the hopes and desires we all aspire to in our careers. It is a story that makes people feel good about the organization they work for. And it is an unforgettable story that will be told to job applicants and candidates for months to come.
