1. "I appreciate the effort you put into your work."


2. “Great work on the project!”


3. "I know things are tough right now but I want you to know how much we appreciate your hard work and dedication."


4. “ I want you to know that we’re here for you if you need us.”


5. “Thanks for all your hard work, break a leg!”


6. “Thank you for everything you’ve done for the team! I really appreciate your hard work and dedication.”
