FIS Day 2012!

Feeling appreciated is one of the most important needs that people have. When you share with someone your appreciation and gratitude, they will not forget you. Appreciation will return to you many times. ~Steve Brunkhorst

No one who achieves success does so without acknowledging the help of others. The wise and confident acknowledge this help with gratitude.  ~Unknown

Appreciate everything your associates do for the business. Nothing else can quite substitute for a few well-chosen, well-timed, sincere words of praise. They’re absolutely free and worth a fortune.  ~ Sam Walton

Take a moment to appreciate a peer, an employee, a supervisor, a team or a department….take the moment and recognize them for something they did, they didn’t do, something they said or didn’t say….the sky is the limit!!!
