Anniversary cards designed for businesses go a long way in showing employees and customers how much you appreciate them. There is something special about receiving written recognition inside a high-quality, display-worthy card that often turns into a keepsake.

Employee Anniversary Cards

  1. Start with a genuine expression of gratitude 
    Every work anniversay card should begin with a genuine expression of gratitude, such as "I would like to personally thank you for # years of service at Company Name."
  2. Say something that is specific to the employee
    This is important. It shows your employee that you are paying attention to their work in a positive way. "Your work on projects A, B and C was integral in our success."
  3. Express a desire to have them stay at the company for the foreseeable future
    Just as important as noticing their work, telling them you hope to have them around will make them feel more connected to your business and work family. For example, "We are looking forward to helping you grow with us for many years to come."
  4. End with "Sincerely, X"
    Use your name. It is a great way to sound both genuine and respectful. It just works.
