The Importance of Saying Thank You in Business

Never underestimate the power of words, especially when it comes to business.

‘Thank you’ may not be the hardest thing to pronounce, but sometimes it’s hard for us to say. 

It’s easy to get caught up in the rush and busyness of daily life, so expressing gratitude often takes a back seat. 

But all you need is roughly 10 seconds to make a lasting impact that could underpin the future success of your business. 

No matter where you are right now in your professional journey, there is nothing more important than saying thank you – to your colleagues, clients, family, anyone who has contributed to getting you to where you are today. 

Illuminance Solutions has recently won two business awards; Microsoft Partner for Social Impact 2019 and Rising Stars 2019 for Diversity, but it’s not just the company and our team that have contributed to the success – it’s also our clients and the broad business community. 

Showing You Care

The Illuminance Solutions’ office were recently packed with those people we believe have all contributed to the business’ success. 

From team members and their families, our university lecturer’s and former teachers and loyal clients, to the Hon. Paul Papalia CSC MLA – Minister for Tourism; Racing and Gaming; Small Business; Defence Issues; Citizenship and Multicultural Interests and the Microsoft One Commercial Partner Director Rachel Bondi – it was really special to celebrate with everyone together under one roof. 

But there’s not always need for food and a big party to show your appreciation. 

It’s all about being authentic and genuine. 

A small gift, a card, a handwritten note or simply just saying ‘thanks’ can go a long way to making a lasting impact on someone.

What Comes Around Goes Around

Our CEO Nilesh Makwana and Principal Consultant Vincent Lam follows Karmic Management and Servant Leadership philosophies, which underpins everything we do at Illuminance Solutions. 

This is based on the idea that helping others in business – staff, customers, suppliers and even competitors – will lead to future success in business and life. 

It’s like that proverb ‘what goes around comes around’, and it really does.

So, thank you.

Make someone’s day instantly better by showing them your appreciation.

It might not seem like much now, but in the long-term a simple thanks can strengthen your relationships.

And you never know when that thank you could be returned to you, in words or in future business.
