Employees are said to perform better when their hard work is recognized and they feel valued instead of feeling like they can easily be replaced or are nothing more than a number. As a boss or manager, small things like making sure your employees know they’re appreciated can go a long way to achieving high morale.

This is where sending messages of appreciation and encouragement comes in handy. You don’t need a special occasion to do this but doing so before the start of the new year again, you can help put your staffs efforts over the past 12 months into perspective. Here are more than 100 year-end sample messages you can send by email or handwritten note to sum up a year gone by and encourage even more achievements the next calendar year.
