Last few weeks were a bit stressful for both my team and me. We had multiple projects to deliver, and due to our small yet powerful team, we meticulously planned each delivery with precise timing. While most things went according to plan, we encountered a situation where a few team members had to take a day off to recover from the flu and fever. However, during this time, the remaining team members stepped in and covered for their colleagues. Without my intervention, the team supported each one of them and ensured that all deliveries went smoothly.
I am sharing this letter with my team because I have never received a letter of appreciation for the work delivered in my career as an accessibility consultant from the organizations I have worked with. It means a lot to me to receive such notes of thanks and recognition. Saying “you did a good job” is one thing, but taking the time to express genuine appreciation and gratitude for their efforts is another.
I have received a few notes like these in my email from the clients I have serviced, who wrote their recommendations and testimonials. I read them whenever I feel low and need a bit of motivation.
Today, I stand before you to seize this opportunity to express my deepest gratitude and appreciation to our exceptional audit team. Your unwavering dedication, resilience, and commitment to one another have truly made a lasting impression on me.
I came across a quote a long time ago that said, “Seals take care of seals, and no one is left behind.” This saying perfectly encapsulates the spirit of our team. In the face of numerous challenges and demanding projects, you have shown incredible support for one another, ensuring that no team member is left behind.
It fills me with immense pride to witness the level of camaraderie and unity within our team. Regardless of the hurdles we faced, each one of you stepped up, lending a helping hand and providing the support needed to overcome every obstacle. Your commitment to looking after one another is truly inspiring.
Today, I want to take this moment to personally thank each team member for embodying the seal’s mentality. Your unwavering dedication and support have made a significant impact on our team’s success. Together, we have created an environment where no one feels alone or left behind.
I believe it is crucial to celebrate and acknowledge the remarkable efforts of our team openly. Your collaborative mindset and willingness to go above and beyond for one another sets an example for the entire organization. Your actions demonstrate the true meaning of teamwork and inspire others to follow in your footsteps.
As we move forward, let us continue to embrace the values that make our team exceptional. Together, we can overcome any challenge, achieve remarkable results, and create a supportive and inclusive environment where everyone thrives.
Thank you, once again, for your unwavering commitment, dedication, and the outstanding work you do every day. Your contributions are invaluable, and I am incredibly proud to be part of this remarkable team.
Remember, as seals take care of seals, we take care of each other, ensuring that no one is left behind.
With heartfelt appreciation,
