I wholeheartedly concur with the lead off to this article by Ron Thomas…
“A person who feels appreciated will always do more than expected, therefore, the two most powerful phrases any leader can use are: Thank you and I appreciate you.”
The only way to improve upon that advice is to point out that the appreciation and respect start before you even hire the person. It needs to be extended from the onset of the hiring process. If you show your applicants how much you respect them and appreciate their interest in your firm, you are way ahead of your competition when it comes to hiring and retaining great people.
