Sending Happy Birthday wishes to coworkers can make a huge impact on their day.

Coworkers spend a large amount of time together and you share a very special bond with those who you work with. Obviously, you may not feel comfortable sharing certain aspects of your life with them and vice versa. But there is still a polite and caring way to show them that you acknowledge and appreciate them.

Birthdays are the one day out of the entire year where everyone wants to feel appreciated. It’s a day where people acknowledge you and show you how important you are to them. Despite this, people aren’t often very vocal about the fact that it’s their special day around strangers. It can be awkward letting random people know it’s your birthday because it is up to the people in your life to show you they care.

The truth is deep down everyone wants to know that there is someone in their life who will go out of their way for them on their birthday.

With that being said, the best thing you can do for a coworker makes an effort to remember their birthday (make yourself a calendar notification!) and send them a sweet happy birthday message to brighten their day.

Sending birthday wishes to coworkers is a great way to show a coworker that they are important to you and the rest of the team. However, this is only possible if your work environment functions as a community.

Workplaces can often sometimes feel very restrictive to the average person. You feel like there are boundaries that cannot be crossed, however, you spend the majority of your time in this environment. It’s easy to feel like your coworkers and the work environment is not conducive to being a part of a real community.

If you come to work every day feeling like nobody cares about your personal goals, achievements, or dreams, it can cause you to create a barrier between you and your coworkers to the point where you become a stranger to them.

Working in this kind of atmosphere can become draining and cause people to not share personal information — you might not even know anything about them including something as important as a birthday. This attitude ruins great work relationships before they even the chance to blossom.

A work environment is a great place for people to get to know each other in a professional sense and civil sense. In contrast to this, it's important to let your coworkers know that they matter on a personal level by doing kind deeds. Nobody wants to devote a large part of their life to an environment with a community of people who don’t even recognize them as human beings with personal wants and needs. When everyone in a workspace has this mentality, all employees will start to form a real community. A community of people who celebrate each other’s strengths and take the time to make everyone feel like they are special.

When there is a sense of community in a work environment, it no longer becomes a boring place where you go to do work and go home. It becomes a place where you all share professional experiences and create a bond from it.

Spend some time to think of creative ways to celebrate a coworker’s birthday. Make sure to think of something memorable so that they can share it with their family and loved ones.

Whether you decide to get them something or simply send them a special birthday message, remember, it’s the thought that counts.
