When You Feel Unappreciated At Work

Unappreciated At Work

Do in-house counsel feel unappreciated at work? When you hear “cost-center”, “they always say no”, “legal slows us down” on a weekly basis, it is hard not to get that feeling. Fortunately, there are things you can do, and don’t forget you need to get your r-e-s-p-e-c-t too:

“Everyone has a need to be appreciated. Yet most of us have, at some point in our working lives, felt unappreciated. In that you aren’t alone.

For you, the results could be increased negativity, loss of motivation or morale, and for the organization, a loss of productivity.”
