Thank You and Happy Holidays – most likely sent from the CEO or division leader and best sent to employees at their homes to convey appreciation to the employee and their family.
Baby Congratulations Cards – processing leave of absence and paid time off requests often give insight into the birth or adoption of a child.
Retirement and Years of Service Greeting Cards – allow the human resources department to source these cards and then provide in advance to direct managers to sign and give to employees on their special day.
Operations Managers know the daily lives of their employees best. They should be the first to respond quickly, compassionately and empathetically to life events.
Encouragement, Care and Concern and Sympathy greeting cards support employees in uncertain times. Life happens when we least expect it. By letting employees and their families know they are supported, you’ll find that it spurs employees to show that same support and understanding to the company during difficult times.
Congratulations and Wedding Cards demonstrate to the employee that the company is celebrating them individually and uniquely – just as they are individually contributing to your company.
