For Happier Employees, Learn To Give More Gratitude Than “Thx”
We all know happier companies make more money—and nothing makes for happier employees than learning how to show real gratitude for what they do. Here are some pointers to get you started today.
How to really say thank you
Goulston lays out three steps for getting good at giving gratitude: 
Be precise: Thank the person specifically for their exceptional actions: Tell them what they’re doing awesome.
Acknowledge the effort: Note the personal cost of their getting it done. If they work through the weekend, appreciate the social and family costs.
Share your stakeholdership: Make a point of how their great work helps your work, show how you’re in this together.
Developing a sense of how to show gratitude is a leadership key—one that can help you (and your employees) reach their potential.
Here’s the full story. Want more? 
How To Give A Meaningful “Thank You”

How my company says thank you: Thanks for working so hard! People are important! Btw you don’t get Christmas eve off, even though the government, and all other surrounding yards will be off that day. Oh and don’t forget, sequestration starts march first and we’re having a rally to send a message to congress! We request that u attend. And by request, we mean require. Also, do it on ur lunch break, we don’t want to pay you. Thx!
