Most of us find it difficult to say, “Thank you for an excellent job anniversary.” After all, every single day there is another task to complete or an event that needs to be remembered. So, how do we say, “Thank you”? Let us look at some ideas which will help us express our sentiments in a way that will be appreciated. And also, let us understand that everyone feels differently about a job anniversary.
In the United States, there are organizations that organize thank you ceremonies during special occasions such as anniversaries, birthdays and weddings. In most countries, it is customary to exchange a card expressing gratitude for a job well done. The message contained in the card may have a specific meaning that you will get to know through other exchanges.
There are many ways to express your gratitude to the person who did the hard work for you, without having to make a formal speech. For example, if you were asked to give the first project report of the week, thank you cards can be sent to the people who contributed to your achievement. When you ask someone to be with you on a business trip, let them know that you appreciate their help. And when you receive a gift from an employee you really like, send him or her a card saying thank you for their contribution to your success. It is the same with the gifts you receive from colleagues, clients, parents and colleagues. All you need to do is write your message on the card and give it away.
In other cases, you may want to send your thanks with a note that says, “To whom it may concern, I have just been informed that my best friend has died.” This can be very thoughtful and touching. It does not have to be any formal kind of message at all.
You can also give a card expressing your gratitude for a job anniversary that was a good experience, even if the relationship has ended. If you had to move to another city but you enjoyed working with someone, you could say, “To whom it may concern, I am moving to another city. Please wish me well and I hope that we will meet again one day.”
Some companies may also provide a card with your name, address, telephone number and a short message thanking the employee for all his or her help. However, you should always use this option only for those instances when your thank you message is personal.
