HRDQ-U Webinar | Creating A Positive Work Environment

Creating A Positive Work Environment through Authentic Appreciation

This On-Demand event was originally presented on April 6, 2016 (60 min)


The current economic situation has caused financial difficulties in all sectors, resulting in high levels of stress in workplaces. Despite the increasing number of employee recognition programs, employees are still reporting negative reactions to what they perceive as insincere gestures. This has left supervisors feeling frustrated and unsure of how to provide support to their staff. It is important for organizations to find new and effective ways to show appreciation and recognition to their employees in these challenging times, to create a positive work environment, boost morale, and reduce stress levels.

Join Dr. Paul White, co-author of The 5 Languages of Appreciation in the Workplace, for an hour-long webinar that will teach you the core conditions for individuals to truly feel appreciated, how to empower your staff by giving them thanks in the ways that are meaningful to each individual, and practical ways to overcome the common challenges encountered.

Attendees will learn

  • The core components that are necessary to communicate appreciation and encouragement authentically in work-based relationships.
  • How to take practical steps immediately that will “hit the mark” in communicating appreciation to colleagues in ways that are meaningful to each person.
  • How to avoid the common pitfalls encountered in applying the principles of appreciation in work-based relationships.


Dr. Paul White is a psychologist, author, speaker, and consultant who makes work relationships work. He has written articles for and been interviewed by  Bloomberg’s Business Week, CNN/,, Fast Company,, Huffington Post LIVE, U.S. News and World Report, and Yahoo! Finance.

Dr. White is the co-author of three books, including The 5 Languages of Appreciation in the Workplace, written with Dr. Gary Chapman. Based on their extensive research and expertise, Dr. White and Dr. Chapman have developed a unique way for organizations to motivate employees that leads to increased job satisfaction, higher employee performance, and enhanced levels of trust. Their Motivating by Appreciation Inventory and Appreciation at Work training resources have been used by numerous corporations, colleges and universities, medical facilities, schools, non-profit organizations, and government agencies.
