What to Write to Thank a Coworker
Having a coworker like you to bail me out when I get in over my head is a huge help at work.
I consider you a role-model and mentor at work. Your feedback and advice are sometimes difficult to hear but usually accurate and helpful.
Thanks for being a good listener even if my problems aren't the type that you can solve.
Thanks for being the type of coworker who cares about relationships with others more than showing off to the bosses. You are a genuine friend.
You make work feel less like work than it really is. Thanks for keeping it fun and light.
You make work fun. Thanks for being entertaining and keeping our office a blast. Just don't get into too much trouble.
I don't know what I'd do if you ever stopped working with me. You can not ever find another job!
It's good to know that when I get overwhelmed with work I have a coworker who can help me.
You make work much more tolerable. Misery loves company I guess.
You are one of the most productive people at work and many times you do things that help me be more productive.
You deserve a promotion, and if I ever get one it's because of your help.
The main reason I stay working where we do is that I like some of my coworkers. You're one of the good ones. Don't ever leave or I won't know what to do. You'd have to take me with you to your new job.
If I was a boss, I'd hire you in a flash. You are easily the best employee where we work even though you don't get the credit you deserve.
