The Steps to Creating a Culture of Appreciation

#InvestInPeople - Aug. 22 at 10 a.m. PT / 1 p.m. ET

Workplace culture is not only a “hot topic” but an important issue.

In his research of both toxic workplaces and healthy, vibrant workplaces, Dr. White identified core issues necessary to build a positive culture of authentic appreciation (as opposed to “going through the motions” employee recognition activities.)

Join Dr. White and Reflektive to learn how appreciation helps an organization become more productive, the difference between recognition and appreciation, and practical steps to create a more positive workplace.


  • The cost to an organization & its team members when employees don’t feel valued
  • The critical differences between employee recognition & authentic appreciation
  • Simple actions each individual can take to begin to create a culture of appreciation in their workplace
