Happy Birthday Wishes for Colleagues

Do you have a colleague who stands out head-and-shoulders above the rest as someone you look up to and appreciate? Does that special colleague show a level of professionalism and quality that inspire you to be the best that you can be? Why not take some time on their next birthday to let this one-of-a-kind colleague know exactly how valuable they are to you? What better way could you show how much you care than to write your colleague a heartfelt, personalized birthday message?

It may seem a bit intimidating at first to come up with your own birthday wishes for someone as important to you as this particular colleague. But it need not be a daunting task if you follow this tried and true pattern. Just use these simple steps to quickly and easily craft a birthday greeting that will fill your colleague with pride and joy on their birthday!

First, think about all the characteristics that make this particular colleague so special. Is he hardworking and committed to excellence? Is she a team player that is easy to work with? Is he a faithful and loyal colleague whom you know will have the best interest of your workplace in mind? Next, apply these positive character qualities to the working relationship that you share with this colleague. Does he inspire you to work harder when you observe his attention to detail and diligence in working on projects? Does she always make group projects run more smoothly and put other colleagues at ease with her reasonable and positive attitude? Does he unselfishly give of his time for the good of both his colleagues and workplace? Then share some of the most enjoyable memories that you have of this colleague. Is he the life of the party at company picnics and holiday gatherings? Does she always have a word of encouragement when you or any of her other colleagues is discouraged? Have there been times when he has personally helped you to solve a difficult problem or finish a project you were having trouble completing on your own? Now is the time to mention all of those great memories that have made this colleague such an important part of your life. Finally, let this colleague know in your own words how very thankful you are for them and that you consider it a privilege to work with them. Then end by wishing them a very happy birthday and many more years of working together.

You may not realize just what an encouragement your words of affirmation and commendation are to your colleague. So often we get bogged down with our work and don’t take the time to let the people around us know how truly valuable they are to us. This year on your colleague’s birthday you have the opportunity to put a spring in their step and let them know that they are loved and appreciated. Why not express your feelings in a personalized birthday message your colleague will cherish?
