Appreciation: The Undervalued Tool in Employee Retention

In this episode of the Built for the Trades podcast, host Dan Dowdy, welcomes Michael Sauer from Scorpion to the show. Dan and Michael talk about employee retention attracting great team members, how to curb The Great Resignation, what the “love languages of appreciation” are and how to practice them in real life.

“51% of managers believe they do a good job of showing recognition, but what percentage of employees think that the manager is showing appreciation?  17%!!!” 

So what you are doing as a manager, likely is not enough. THIS is why everyone is leaving. Michael shares insight on how to change that. 

In this episode, you’ll learn…

  • The power of appreciation in the workplace. It is a GAME CHANGER! 
  • The Platinum Rule – what it is and how to apply it. It’s based on building a relationship with your team member and Michael shares some examples to explain the problem and solution. 
  • How “love languages” play into the workplace. What if the WAY you communicate (and it’s not all by words) impacts the ability to build stronger relationships and create solid employee retention
  • Why finding out what motivates your employee, what each one cares about matters. 
  • The difference between recognition and appreciation.
