15 Ways to Say "We Appreciate You"

If you represent a business, you likely owe a debt of gratitude to quite a few people. What do we mean? Consider your customers. Without their loyal patronage, you wouldn’t be in business. How about your vendors? Some likely bend over backward to keep your business meeting your timing, quality, and pricing needs. Surely they’re due a bit of gratitude. 

 Showing your employees you appreciate their contributions helps with morale, providing positive feedback that can motivate them to work harder and smarter. Your strategic partners need a heartfelt message now and then, too. In truth, a little appreciation can go a long way with every person your company interfaces with.    

But oftentimes, companies and their representatives have a tough time knowing how to best say “We appreciate you.” They get stuck before they begin and miss opportunities to build relationships and improve their standing with employees and customers. We’re here to help. Each simple phrase we've included below is a lovely way to tell the people important to your business where their goodness lie and say, "I appreciate you."

WHY SHOWING YOUR APPRECIATION IS SO IMPORTANT

Approaching business from a place of gratitude can bring all manner of benefits. Saying “We appreciate you” helps build community, letting customers and employees know that they’re valued members of something larger than themselves. This desire to belong is deeply engrained in the human psyche, and when you feed that need with genuine gratitude, you lay the groundwork for long-term loyalty. 

 Your employees are looking for more than just a paycheck. They want to feel valuable. They want to know their contributions are recognized. This leads to greater engagement — with their coworkers, customers, and job responsibilities — increasing overall productivity. In a 2019 report, the Global Happiness Council found that even minor improvements in perceived well-being can create a 10% productivity gain. From that perspective, saying “thanks” has an extremely high ROI. 

 Infusing appreciation occasionally also improves your retention numbers. You’ll hold onto employees longer and create a more cohesive workforce. Customers will likewise stick around longer while potentially increasing the amount of business they do with your company.

Consider how you feel when family members or a dear friend does a wonderful thing and acknowledges that you deserve recognition. The positive changes it makes in your life are available in your business relationships, too. Genuine recognition is a powerful motivator, and when you utter words of encouragement in a handwritten note, you're creating small gestures with a big impact.
