@zombiviscxx commented, "It's almost like the environment reflects and inspires work ethic. There are a lot of employers who can learn from this (though it's the bare minimum)." @jazzminelove wrote, "That’s truly all I need, I work so much harder after praise than I do being told we need to do better." @Jay shared their own experience, "How I became the favorite manager and no one walked out on me and came in whenever I asked?" @DemonicRainbow shared, "I once told my boss that I'm always insecure about the work I do and that I don't think it's ever enough, he compliments me all the time now."

If we feel appreciated at work, we try to give our best. This is even backed by statistics. As per Zippia, "29% of employees haven’t received recognition for good work in over a year, if at all. 80% of employees would work harder if they felt better appreciated. 37% of employees report that the best way to improve their engagement is for their superiors to give them recognition." 

Stories about employees narrating their workplace horrors are many but in this one, a social media user recounted their early career experience of working in a family-run business and stated why it is the worst place to be employed. Reddit user u/​​therealgloface mentioned being subjected to a lecture for being late for work once, despite regularly working long unpaid hours and ultimately deciding to quit. They wrote in a viral Reddit post, “This was from my first job in a family-run SME (small, midsize enterprise) where the husband was the director and the wife was the GM. It was a toxic workplace and I am thankful I left the job five years ago. I dreaded every single day at that company."

The user did not feel well compensated for the job or even appreciated so they left the toxic workplace.
