What to write in a get well card to a coworker

Having a coworker that is sick or feeling low can bring us to want to help them feel better! However, when thinking about what to write in a get well card to a coworker- it’s important to show compassion, maybe a bit of humor, and not to be too insensitive.

There are several types of things to write in a get well card to a coworker, based on how much you want to write, what’s the situation, how close the two of you are, their role in your company, and how much humor you want to use!

What to write in a get well card to a sick coworker on a short sick leave at home:

  • Get well soon! The office is so boring without you!
  • Get better my dear, and get back to work- where you belong!
  • Out on sick leave? Me so jelly!!
  • I want to say ‘get well soon’, but our job is so boring- so use all the sick leave you can get!
  • Get well soon, the place can’t function without you!
  • Can you get better faster? I’m pulling double shifts!
  • Get well soon my dear! Or better yet- cough at me- so I can get sick-leave too!
  • Sick leave instructions- sneeze, take medicine, Netflix, sleep, repeat!
  • I don’t care how much free time you have now to catch up on (your favorite TV show)- when you get back- no spoilers!
  • I would visit you- but the boss got me working over time cause you’re out on sick leave! (Buy you a drink when you’re back?)
  • You being sick and at home made me realize you’re not just my coworker, you’re also my friend! Get well, and come back sooner, rather than later!
