You want the results and suggested actions of appreciation to be relevant to you and your colleagues.  By upgrading to a specific work setting version, you will:

  • Use a version designed with the specific characteristics of your work setting in mind;
  • Avoid negative reactions by employees to actions not applicable to your workplace;
  • Build credibility by having practical items which take into account the limitations of the characteristics and rules of your workplace.
