Improve Your Small Business Through Gratitude at Work

gratitude at work

November usually finds your Facebook feed stuffed with “month of gratitude” posts. In honor of the Thanksgiving holiday, these daily posts feature a different person, place, or thing for which your friends and family members are grateful. The results can be profound, with Robert Emmons – a scientific expert on gratitude – stating that this focus on being grateful can create positive changes in your mind, body, and relationships.

Of course, gratitude (and these positive effects) are not limited to your personal or social media life. Gratitude is often listed as an extremely important part of the workplace culture – yet it is one that is frequently overlooked. In fact, a 2013 Gallup poll stated that 65% of employees do not feel appreciated at work. For a small business dependent on the hard work and dedication of its employees, the resulting low morale, decreased productivity, and lack of loyalty can be extremely detrimental to the success of your company.

Philosopher and psychologist William James stated that “the deepest principle in human nature is the craving to be appreciated.” For any small business owner who wants to improve the culture, environment, and productivity of the office, take a lesson from your Facebook feed and focus on creating a culture of gratitude.

Understanding the BYOD Trend


Ten or fifteen years ago, a company decided on its computing environment—its designated operating system, devices and software—and that’s what employees used. Period.

Along came the BYOD trend. BYOD, which stands for “Bring Your Own (computing) Device to work,” has swept across America in the past five years. Employees have got so used to having technology in their personal lives that they don’t want to give it up while at work. We all prefer using the devices we each, as individuals, feel most comfortable with. Of course everyone would rather use the coolest new mobile devices rather than staid, company-issued laptops or desktop computers.

Does my website need a blog?


If you are running a business website without a blog, you are missing out on some big opportunities to engage prospective clients and increase website traffic.

A study from HubSpot, “The 2012 State of Inbound Marketing,” finds that 57 percent of businesses that blogged at least monthly acquired customers through their blogs.
