No more ... Thank you emails!

By Hazel Berger
Managing Partner, Fresh Admin

I have consciously made the decision to stop sending automatic thank you emails. I believe that this saves me and my coworkers time. If someone has done something above and beyond, then by all means, I'd send a thank you. But I am purposeful about these emails. My suggestions:

1. Don't reply all with a thank you.

2. Add sincerity to the thank you notes you do send. Make them personal; and detail what was good, so the employee can do the excellent work again.

3. Immediately delete all the automatic "thank you" emails you receive, so they don't clutter your inbox.

4. Teach your employees to do the same.
