Some great thoughts for Thanksgiving Day from Quint Studer, ideas that could apply to any organization, not just in healthcare.

Quint’s Blog: The Grateful Workplace: Six Ways to Create a Culture of Gratitude in Your Organization

His post begins:

Here’s a question just in time for Thanksgiving: Does your organization encourage a culture of gratitude? Not in an obligatory, “Gee, I really appreciate my coworkers and the feeling is mutual!” way? Chances are the answer is no. According to a recent Gallup poll, 65 percent of people say they don’t feel appreciated at work. And, that feeling can lead to pervasive negativity, low morale, and (worst of all) decreased productivity.

It doesn’t have to be this way.

Read Quint’s blog for some practical tips for how to create an “attitude of gratitude” in your workplace. Imagine how morale, quality, and customer service would improve in this type of environment…

Happy Thanksgiving.
