Why It's Important to Feel Valued At Your JobWhy is it that sometimes at work, you go that extra mile, while at other times, you may take off early or do only the bare minimum?  Sure, stress plays a role, as do family obligations and your physical health.

However, according to a survey by the American Psychological Association (APA), feeling valued is a key indicator of job performance.  Employees who feel valued are more likely to be engaged in their work and feel satisfied and motivated.

What can you — and companies — do to help improve your feeling valued at your job?
