When an employee does his/her job, you may think that it’s just to be expected, that thanks are not in order. But they are. Just remember the last time your manager appreciated what you did and told you so. It just feels so good to be appreciated.
Here are a few examples of how to show appreciation to your employees:
“Thank you for completing the budget report on time Having the numbers handy at the budget meeting really helped me get the money we need for the ABC project.”
“Thank you for doing such a thorough job on the project proposal. When I presented the proposal to the board, they could all understand exactly what we were proposing. They asked very few questions. Your thoroughness helped get the proposal approved.”
A common mistake that businesses make is to go out of their way to get a new customer and forget to pay the same attention to existing customers.
Here are a few phrases that may help in expressing appreciation for a customer.
“Thank you for your business, we really appreciate it.”
“We know you have options, so we really appreciate you chose us to do business with.”
“We truly value your business. Thanks for letting us serve you”
“We really enjoy working with you, thanks for being such a great customer”
