Benefits of a Year-Round Attitude of Gratitude in the Workplace
For a variety of reasons, we are hesitant to show gratitude in our professional lives. A survey (conducted by the John Templeton Foundation, which also funds an Expanding Gratitude project at UC Berkeley), shows that people are least likely to express gratitude in the workplace — despite feeling a desire to be thanked more often at work themselves. We have to get over whatever is holding us back from giving thanks in the workplace. Gratitude should be a central feature of company culture.
