Stay Connected To Your Employees with Employee Birthday Cards


I’ve been in business a long time and it doesn’t seem like it was ever harder to stay afloat than it is today. Maybe I’m just getting old, but I feel like I need to constantly learn something new to keep pace with the competition. Don’t get the wrong idea, I never stood still. I understand about keeping up, if you don’t, forget about it. I’m talking about the speed of it all today, seems like I’m always a little behind. Email, Facebook, twitter and all the ways to connect that I don’t know about yet. Being where the business is makes me dizzy!

It makes me wonder too about some of the things I spend my money on. There’s never been a greater urgency to look for ways to trim the fat, and get the most out of every nickel. Employee birthday cards, for example. Are they really worth the time, effort and expense? There are cards for anniversaries, Christmas and more so it adds up. I know it’s important to stay connected to your employees, but do they really care about getting a card? I know they used to, but I’ve got a lot of new, younger people now and I’m not so sure.

Honestly I hate how impersonal and cold it would be to do away with the cards, employee birthday cards. I think I’ll look elsewhere for savings. I’m betting the personal touch is still worth something.

  1. I understand you Matty. But if trimming expenses means no cards for your employees I feel that would be a mistake. You look to the boss to care just a little bit more than just giving you a paycheck. Everything is getting too impersonal for me these days, so getting a birthday card from the boss means a lot.

  2. I don’t think people’s emotion change. I find that a card always makes me feel good. Saving money is important, but having your people happy makes for a more favorable atmosphere where people work harder. Happy employees is the best money saver you can find.

  3. The cards are a nice boost to morale. Always looking for a reason to celebrate in the office and makes my employees feel so appreciated!

  4. Cards make an impression and they are cost-effective. A little appreciation goes a long way.

  5. I’m from a younger generation but still love the personal touch of a handwritten card. I think you should keep sending cards to your employees!
