Is appreciation communicated regularly at your workplace?
Do you truly feel valued by those with whom you work?
If you express appreciation in ways that aren't meaningful to your co-workers, they may not feel valued at all. The problem is you're speaking different languages. In The 5 Languages of Appreciation in the Workplace, Dr. Gary Chapman and Dr. Paul White will help you:
- Express genuine appreciation to co-workers and staff - even on a tight budget.
- Increase loyalty with the employees and volunteers in your organization.
- Reduce cynicism and create a more positive work environment.
- Improve your ability to show appreciation for difficult colleagues.
- Individualize your expressions of appreciation by speaking the right language
- Convey the language of physical touch in appropriate ways.
Based on the #1 New York Times bestseller, The 5 Love Languages®, Dr. Chapman and Dr. White give you practical steps to make any workplace environment more encouraging and productive. Before you know it, you will learn to speak and understand the unique languages of appreciation and feel truly valued in return.

I saw them put a lot of our discussion into practice by complimenting each other and making small gestures of kindness such as making coffee for their galley mate when making themselves one.
Will use before all briefings in future.
It clearly highlights the different ways companies and managers reward their staff without being able translate the feeling of appreciation to their staff.
The book lists the benefits to be derived by the companies when they clearly understand and implement these tools. Some of the benefits are lower staff turnover, fewer funds required for advertising new vacancies and time required for new staff to learn their functions to become an effective team member.
I would recommend this book to any business owner and persons in positions such as supervisors and managers. I think this book will contribute to the improved positive work environment and increase levels of productivity.
