kudos (n)

1. Great job on the project! Kudos to you and your team, John.
2. We heard the actors were difficult to work with. Kudos to the director for making it happen.
3. They received some kudos for their excellent customer service.
4. Kudos should go to his secretary, who caught the huge mistake that could have gotten him fired.
5. Kudos to everyone who volunteered. Your hard work made the program a success.

We give kudos to people when we praise, congratulate, or give them credit for a job well done. This word tends to be used informally.
