A note to thank a person for a job well done is a great way to improve morale in the workplace, while providing recognition to an employee. A sample of an employee thank-you note can be used to develop a unique new version of a letter that will be used to formally recognize the accomplishments of a good employee. This sample shows the general structure of this style of letter.
Thank you for all of the hard work you have done on spearheading the Johnson project. You have been instrumental to the success of the project, and your dedication to seeing it through from start to finish is truly an example of a great team member.
As the head of your team over the past several months, you have been an effective leader and motivator to your fellow co-workers. Many of them have stated to other team members and management how much they appreciated your helpful advice and guidance. There is a general consensus among your team that they could not have done such a great job without your vision, attention to detail and overall support.
Our customers at the Johnson company are also singing your praises. They spoke highly of your commitment to quality and getting the project done on time and under budget. They are looking forward to working with you on future projects.
Thank you again for all your hard work. You are a valued staff member, and we are happy that you are continuing to shine brightly in your position.
The letter can be addressed to an individual or a group of people. Be sure to list one or more things within the letter about the employee’s performance. The more personal details you include, the more compelling the thank-you note will be.
