Message of the Month:
Bits of Wisdom for Your Best Business Communication*
Acknowledging your colleagues' anniversaries is a perfect way to say thank you for their dedication and hard work. It's also an opportunity to continue building internal relationships that foster a friendly and productive working environment.
While you're writing an anniversary note, ask yourself a few questions to make sure you effectively capture the personal details that mean so much on your colleague's special day:
What qualities do you admire about this person?
What's your favorite memory of her?
What do you like most about working with him?
Is there a specific interaction you can mention? |
These personal details show you truly appreciate having your colleague as a part of your team.
