Who would think that something so small with a few words of expression could light up someone’s day? Receiving business Birthday cards from your employer says a lot, especially in today’s economy. We all read or hear about the struggles of everyday life, whether it is in business or your personal life. In the era of “cutbacks” it’s nice to know that my employer shows thoughtfulness to his employees by recognizing our birthdays.
It was made even more special when my boss walked up to me while I was working to personally hand me the card with his birthday wishes. I felt appreciated for the work I put for the company.
Not only was it a nice gesture, but the card itself was beautiful! It was a tropical beach scene (just where I wanted to be) but yet it had just enough sparkle on it that it made me smile and I will never forget that day as I still have the card. Three years later and still working at the same company even though my boss has retired, the tradition is still carried on by receiving our annual birthday cards. I still look forward to it every year.
I have great birthdays!
