Today I received a few anniversary cards. Getting greeting cards always cheers me up. Oh, the greeting cards weren’t for my wedding anniversary though; they were corporate anniversary cards recognizing my first day of work for the best greeting cards company ever! I know I sound like a cheerleader, but I think it’s important to cheer for the good things in life. One of the best things is greeting cards!
I think I mentioned I love sending greeting cards, but that means I also love receiving them. When we get anniversary cards at work, they are signed by the company chairman/owner, president and department manager. I think giving corporate anniversary cards is one of the greatest morale boosters. The gesture tells people that they are recognized for their importance as valued members of the company. The anniversary cards are followed by a personal visit and congratulations on the anniversary. How fabulous to work for a company where you can feel appreciated.
I was surprised when I first started working here. During the first week, everyone greeted me by name and encouraged me to join in with different activities. I thought it must be a front – everyone can’t possibly be this friendly or this nice. All these years later, I still am amazed to feel that every day when I come to work. Consequently, I am happy to go to work every day. How many companies can say that their employees are eager to come to work? Not enough! Maybe we can give lessons. Giving employees greeting cards is a start!
Anyway, Happy Anniversary to me and I hope to celebrate many more.
