How To Show Gratitude At Work (Without Being A Kiss-UP)

People are less likely to say "thanks" on the job than anywhere else, which hurts productivity and happiness. That needs to change ASAP!

Show your co-workers a little love this week. May is almost over and it will be a welcome reprieve from the end-of-month responsibilities and mid-Pandemic blahs.

Stumped for ideas?

Consider sending one of these little notes to a few co-worker’s this week… Feel free to change it as you please. The below is merely a suggestion.

Thank you for all of the great things you bring to our team. Your _________, _________ and ___________ make this a great place to work. 

You inspire me every day to __________________.
