Connecting with your employees helps keep them engaged and feeling appreciated. However, finding a way to do so that’s both seamless and meaningful can be a challenge. Enter employee birthday cards.

Many employees spend their birthdays at the office, so it’s only natural for an employer to ensure their employees feel valued and recognized on their special day. Staff birthday card wishes can be as simple as hoping for happiness in the year to come, or an expression of gratitude for a year of hard work.

For some inspiration, we’ve compiled the following list of employee birthday wishes.


But before you write happy birthday messages to employees, you need to find the right card. Sometimes birthday greeting cards are not as business-centered as you’d like them to be. That’s where Hallmark Business Connections comes in. Our curated collection of business birthday cards will help you quickly find just the right card for your employees.

Once you’ve purchased your staff birthday cards, it’s time to write your personal message. Trust these messages to work for you—they come straight from writers at Hallmark Business Connections, HallmarkBirthday Wishes and One Tip.
