Gratitude itself is associated with higher levels of life satisfaction. It is also linked to lowering levels of depression and anxiety, supporting our perceptions of positive relationships (Wood et al, 2010) and fostering a sense of social connectedness. The positive effect of gratitude, however, is relatively short-lived and for praise to have a long-lasting impact on staff well-being, it needs to be given regularly: “Recognition is a short-term need that has to be satisfied on an ongoing basis”. That’s precisely why TAP was created in the first place. To make it easier to regularly share messages of thanks, quickly, easily and securely with those that deserve it.
