Feeling underappreciated can lead employees to quit their jobs.
A good company culture is one of the most important aspects of any job. Working for a company that cares about you not only boosts job satisfaction, but it also makes for a more productive workplace.
“People come to work for more than a paycheck,” said Lynn Taylor, a national workplace expert and author of “Tame Your Terrible Office Tyrant.” “They want to feel that their contributions are making a difference.
