No . I work in a cube on the phone allday.I don't feel my boss listens to my needs or interests. It Seems She Does Not appreciate my work. In general I have a hard time in a telephonic environment. However it seems that is what our Healthcare system is coming to.

So true otherwise people give up and look elsewhere for motivation or praise.

It's motivation. Everyone likes to hear they're doing a great job.

One stumble does not a failure make.

Everything in moderation.

I agree that people should know they are valued and that they are doing a good job.

I got lots of praise when I started where I work. But, now 6 years later, I don't hear as much. I thought I was valued, but I'm wondering. We have all been having to deal with lots of changes in the last few years. There is lots of stress. What bothers me is that it's next to impossible to get any bonus' or tangible type of recognition. You have to have near perfect productivity which is next to impossible since we are dealing with people and people will fail you. First, is this normal? And is it bad to want to be recognized at work for what you do?

My boss has said she is deliberately parsimonious with praise. I feel that is poor management. I think your staff should know on a regular basis what a good job they are doing, so when you do have to correct them, criticism is not the only thing they've heard from you.

I've told my boss this, but now, when I do get "appreciation" from her, it seems forced, like she has to do it. She was out for nearly two and a half weeks between vacation and a business trip, and I made an effort of letting the staff know almost daily that I appreciated their work and effort.

One stumble does not a failure make.

Everything in moderation.

What makes you feel appreciated at work? And do you feel appreciated?
Would love to hear others thoughts on this topic.
