I enjoy the sincere appreciation I receive from not only my boss, but also the people I work with. A heartfelt “thanks” goes a long way to improving my attitude and productivity. I like that the company I work for is not too paternalistic. Schedule adjustments are never a big deal.My company also pays for outside training, without many stipulations. So, I can enhance my skills as I see fit and have time. I guess they trust that employees generally want to succeed and if they feel they need some training, they probably do. Little things go a long way, such as company lunches, recognizing birthdays and actual achievements.
