The Office Rules of Saying Thank You

Jacqueline Whitmore cites a poll from 2007 that says nearly 80 percent of employees feel receiving praise is important to their job satisfaction. As such, it is important to know how to properly say thank you at work. She says handwritten notes are an excellent and personal way to show appreciation. Invest in personalized stationery to make yourself a “brand” with which kindness will be associated, and mail out your finished notes right away. Try to contact your most valued partners at least once a quarter just to maintain the relationship and show interest. And importantly, even when deals fall through, send a thank-you note anyway letting them you know appreciated the opportunity. The business will remember that in the future and potentially refer you to others.
