Appreciated employees are productive employees

Who cares about work anniversaries? Well, workplace appreciation is the key to effective company culture and employee morale. Marking special events (like work anniversaries) is a great way to bring your team together and bring the vibes up.

So much more than a “good job!”

Do they even make good work anniversary paper cards? The old way (paper cards) meant that someone needed to go out and buy a card, then walk it around the office, missing everyone who isn’t there or who works remotely. Not anymore. Work anniversary Kudoboards are fast, efficient, and cost-effective—especially for remote and hybrid teams.

Frequently asked questions about work anniversary cards

An online work anniversary card from Kudoboard is a digital way, as a group, to annually celebrate an employee on the day they started in the company. For the individual who is tasked with picking out a card for everyone to sign, spending hours in card aisles hoping to find the one that fits the circumstances (and personalities of everyone involved) can be difficult. With Kudoboard, you can custom-create a board to compile everyone’s virtual “work anniversary wishes” right from your computer or phone.

Let’s say your coworker is coming up on 15 years of working in the company. Rather than passing a card around the office, you can instead choose a “Work Anniversary” board on our website, and send each employee a link where they can add their own contributions. Kudoboard allows you to add messages, GIF’s, images, or videos to the board so that it can be personalized to the recipient. This makes a great option for those working remotely or living far away from others, to still join in on the celebrations.

Here at Kudoboard, we know that our employees truly are the backbone of our company. They are the ones who make the biggest difference in our success, day in and day out. We are sure you feel the same about your company! That is why it is crucial to make sure employees feel appreciated, and know that their hard work has not gone unnoticed. Work anniversaries provide the perfect opportunity to do just that. By encouraging these yearly celebrations you can:

  • Create a more positive work environment
  • Strengthen employee retention and reduce turnover
  • Increase company loyalty
  • Increase engagement
  • Encourage and motivate employees
  • Remind employees why they like working for your company
  • Help your employees feel like the company cares about them and what they bring to the table

Bottom line, we all want our employees to feel appreciated, and a Kudoboard Work Anniversary card is a fantastic way to do that.

We have worked to make this process so simple, anyone can do it!

Once you click the “Create a Kudoboard” button on our website, our template will walk you through each step quickly and easily. You will be prompted to input the name of the recipient, a name or title for your board, and to select which type of board fits your needs best. From there, you can try out a variety of backgrounds until you find the right one. Voila! Your board is created!

Now comes the fun part: adding in the virtual “work anniversary wishes” and messages from you and your group. We suggest that, as the creator of the board (hats off to you), you do the honors of the first post. That way, when others come to add in their messages, they have an example of your creative ingenuity (you’re welcome), as well as how this work anniversary ecard works.

From there, send members of your group a link inviting them to contribute, and watch as the board fills with the kind of love and appreciation your employees deserve. You will be amazed at how seamless and easy the process is.

Whichever type you need! One of the benefits of using Kudoboard’s online work anniversary card is you can customize it to fit your needs. Maybe it’s your newest employee’s first-ever work anniversary and you want to make sure they don’t feel forgotten. Or perhaps a beloved employee left after 10 years to go back to school, but then came back and is celebrating their first year in management – but you can’t find a card that mentions all of those words! You can customize your digital get well soon card with us so that is never a problem.

While you may have been limited in the past to whatever your local greeting card section contains, we think you will be impressed with how easy it is to say exactly what you need with Kudoboard.

This is a common question, as many people want options that feel more heartfelt or personalized than a simple “congrats!” The answer though depends on your recipient. For a coworker in a job with a more professional setting, you might use messages short and sweet like:

  • “This place wouldn’t be the same without you! Glad to have you a part of our team”
  • “Here’s to another year, to the best team player we have!”
  • “Thank you for all of the hard work you do, and congrats on another year”
  • “Can’t believe it’s already been another year. Happy Work-aversary!”

If your employee relationships are a little more close-knit, it can be nice to add something more personal. Depending on your style and personality, options range from inspirational and loving, to humorous and lighthearted. The following are some options to get you started:

  • “You have changed my mind about what it means to be a loyal friend and employee. I look up to you so much and am so grateful to have you on my team”
  • “There is no way I could survive this place without you, so you better stick around (Yes, that’s a threat)
  • “Congrats on 20 years! We would have gotten you a paper card, but, you know, global warming.”
  • “Your work anniversary is one of my favorite reasons to eat cake, so thanks for sticking around another year!”

Whatever you choose to put on your Kudoboard work anniversary card, if you make it genuine and true to your personality, it is sure to be appreciated.

Kudobaord makes it easy and fun to add many options to your virtual work anniversary card. Your celebratory wishes can be emphasized with pictures, GIF’s, or videos. You can even collect funds from the group (all from our website), to deliver a gift card alongside your ecard. This helps to make your recipient’s experience much more meaningful and memorable.

For example, your “Office-loving” boss might appreciate your message a bit more if it had a GIF of Michael Scott or Dwight attached to it. Or, maybe your work BFF would find it more entertaining to read your comment if you attached that funny video of her receiving a singing telegram on her birthday last year.. Each person in your group has the chance to make their contribution their own, so the sky’s the limit on what you can put on your group ecard.

We know that, sometimes, just having a digital option for your card isn’t enough, especially when you are celebrating! That’s why we have printing options for you and your group. Kudoboard offers the opportunity to have your board printed as a beautiful, hardbound book, or as a high-resolution poster.

Once your board is full of posts from everyone in your group, you can select the option to have it printed as a book. Our books come with a 7”x7” hardcover and have an image-wrapped, matte finish. We ship anywhere in the US, or to many countries worldwide.

If you choose to have your work anniversary ecard printed as a poster, you have the option of 12”, 24”, or 48” wide. We can print and ship you a beautiful, semi-gloss poster, or you can download a high-resolution image of your board and print it on your own.

Pricing for your virtual work anniversary card varies depending on your need. Kudoboard offers a free mini-board to anyone with a small group of contributors (10 or fewer posts per board). Our premium board, which is our most popular, allows for up to 100 posts, and the option of adding videos, for $5.99. From there, we have a variety of options for larger groups, companies, memorials, or milestones that start at $20 a board.

For larger events, including CEO departures, graduations, fundraisers, etc., contact us for custom pricing.
