Simple Thank You Notes for Coworkers, Colleagues, Bosses & Business Friends


As long as this isn’t your co-worker.

Sometimes proximity makes the heart grow fonder.

Coworkers: you love them, and sometimes you barely tolerate them, but the fact remains that many of us have closer relationships with our coworkers than we do with many of our blood relatives.

Rarely is there a clear separation between Work and Life. It is only fitting that we want to thank our colleagues for being there for us, both during work-related breakdowns and celebrations, and for those life-changing events beyond the professional realm.

I like to climb mountains, read Nietzsche, and explore the West Coast. I have a BA from York University and yet on this site I sometimes spell like an American (know your audience). Thank you. Thank you very much.
