Say Thank You to Your Workmates


It might seem like common knowledge that manners matter, but recent studies have proved that saying thank you to colleagues isn’t just the kind thing to do—it also positively effects their motivation. A survey cited in Janice Kaplan’s new book “The Gratitude Diaries” states that 81% of people are willing to work harder for an appreciative boss, and yet only 10% of survey participants said they regularly thank their workmates. A great reason to show some gratitude today, please—and TY.
