I agree that receiving feedback and praise from managers is so vital to their happiness. I actually watched this video a while ago about how happiness is the driver of productivity in people. You might find it interesting since you just wrote a paper about employee engagement! https://www.ted.com/talks/shawn_achor_the_happy_secret_to_better_work
Hi Naman Mandhan , I personally can relate to your story about Andrew and your passion for raising money for hospitals for children. I am a student at the University of Texas at Austin.
In my time here I have two separate incidents that resonate with your Andrew story. My freshman year at UT a fellow student of mine was murdered at night and found in a creek outside of my dorm the next morning. My sophomore at UT I was sitting in my class when I heard that another fellow student of mine was stabbed and murdered on his way to class that day. It is now my 3rd year at UT and I have not yet had a full year here without a tragedy like these. Each day I remember how lucky I am to be alive.
My school has a huge student run charity called TexasThon. It is a giant dance marathon to raise money for the Dell Medical Center for children. My sophomore year, the day of the dance marathon was actually on my birthday. I got to spend 12 hours on my feet dancing, raising money and spending time with children who have had faced way more struggles in their short lives than I have for my whole 20 years on this earth.
I agree that we should never take any day for granted and go the extra mile to be kind to each other each and every day. I also definitely remember the sense of community UT had when we had those candlelight ceremonies in memory of Haruka and Harrison.
Hi Avery! I think another thing that keeps Apple employees going is their love of the brand. Most of them are full of pride to be working for a company that is so influential and a huge part of most American's daily lives.
