What does GW stand for?

Good work

So, you’ve seen GW pop up in a chat with a friend, family member or colleague. Ever wondered what it means? Well, GW stands for “good work.” It’s a quick and easy way for people to pat you on the back for a job well done.

Let’s say you’ve just finished a big project at work, and your co-worker messages you with a simple “GW.” They’re telling you that they appreciate your hard work and think you did a great job. It’s a nice little boost, isn’t it?

And if you want to reply back to the compliment, it’s pretty simple. No need for a long thank you note. A short and sweet response will do the trick.

No doubt about that, your efforts paid off. GW again! πŸ‘
