How Do You Write a Thank-You Letter for Receiving a Bonus?

Although a formal thank-you letter is usually not required after receiving a bonus, an employee may give the employer a card that demonstrates appreciation for the bonus and shows the employer that he will continue to contribute to the company in a positive way. The thank-you note should have a modest tone and should show that the employee is both humble and confident.

Some examples of what to put in a thank you note include indicating how the company has helped one's personal and professional growth and telling the employer that although the employee has been rewarded with the bonus, the employee doesn't feel that his or her contributions are more important than that of other employees. Doing this shows both confidence in the employee's accomplishments and humility towards others in the workplace.
