Chester Elton and Adrian Gostick: Leading with Gratitude

Showing gratitude to employees is the easiest, fastest, and most inexpensive way to boost performance. New research shows that gratitude boosts employee engagement, reduces turnover, and strengthens team bonds. Despite these benefits, few executives effectively utilize this simple tool. Adrian Gostick and Chester Elton call this the gratitude gap. In Leading with Gratitude, the authors introduce eight simple ways managers can show employees they are valued. They supplement their insights and advice with stories of how many of today’s most successful leaders, such as Allan Mullaly at Ford and Hubert Joly of Best Buy, successfully incorporate gratitude into their leadership styles.

CHRO Call to Action: Creating A Culture of Belonging

It’s long been known that successful Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion programs drive business results. But organizations need to understand what the mechanism is behind those results. New research from the Achievers Workforce Institute suggests the answer: a strong sense of belonging. Employees with a strong sense of belonging are more productive, resilient, engaged, and committed. They’re more likely to recommend their employer as a great place to work and say they are able to look after their mental and physical wellbeing. Learn about the five pillars of belonging and how you can improve existing DEI and employee experience programs to develop belonging inside your organization.
