We all know there are some really crummy jobs out there. But, as the old saying goes: someone's gotta do it!

Some of those crummy jobs might have excellent compensation, but sometimes you need a little bit more than a buck.

Appreciation goes a long way

It really does and according to one study, 83.6% of workers say that "recognition affects their motivation to succeed at work."

Even crazier, that same study says that 77.9% of workers would perform better if they were shown a little more love from their organization. Can you imagine being a leader/manager and realizing too late that you were just a "thank you" away from hitting your production goal? Ouch!
