Congratulations emails.

These get sent to the whole office so we can all celebrate the birth of a new baby or someone’s promotion. Wonderful, thanks for letting me know! But then…
The whole office, one by one, replies to this group email so that EVERYONE knows how excited they are for the new parent or promoted coworker. Really? We all need to know how you feel?
Please congratulate directly, in person or one-to-one. Because now, the person who just had such a great thing happen to them is related to tons of internal spam in my inbox. Grrrr.
