Over the course of one’s career, most people will spend more time at work than they will in any other activity, except sleeping. But most companies still lack the “recognition-rich culture” that most employees desire.
Did you know?
- 39% of employees feel underappreciated at work, with 77% reporting that they would work harder if they felt better recognized.
- 41% of customers are loyal to a brand or company because they consistently notice a positive employee attitude, while 68% of customers defect from a brand or company because of negative employee attitude.
- According to U.S. Department of Labor statistics, individuals that voluntarily leave work cite lack of appreciation as one of the major reasons for leaving.
One thing MIJA takes seriously is their employees. Despite MIJA being a small company, they have over 400 years of experience working for the company and over 80% of the employees have been there for 15 or more years. They know that without their employees, MIJA would not be where they are today. This year, as a thank you for everyone’s hard work, MIJA designated the last Friday in July as Employee Appreciation Day. This year, MIJA’s employees enjoyed Pizza and Ice Cream.
