Employee Recognition Letters

Receiving employee recognition letters can be more meaningful than getting expensive corporate gifts. A well-written recognition letter goes a long way, and when printed out on paper as opposed to being sent electronically will be kept as valuable proof of excellence, along with other awards and achievements.

A good recognition letter should be simple and straightforward. It should recognize the employee's specific contribution. A recognition letter that comes along with a gift basket, a salary increment or a bonus will mean more to the employee. However, when times are tough, a letter of recognition should be adequate as a token of appreciation for the employee.


A recognition letter should include a thank you to show appreciation for the employee's contribution. It should describe the specific event, and it should include encouragement and praise on the contribution.


It can be handwritten for a more personal touch. It could be written in a slightly casual tone to emanate the feeling of a close but professional relationship between employer and employee.

Letters are important to show appreciation towards the employees, who have worked hard for the company. These recognition letters will definitely boost their confidence and self-esteem. It will encouragethem to be more sincere and honest in striving for the benefits of the company they are working for. Many employees will surely take pride in putting their recognition letters on their cubicle walls for others to see.

Every employee, especially those who have worked behind the scenes, for years should not be underestimated or taken for granted. These employees deserve every bit of recognition they can get. Taking some time to write and give employee recognition letters to them would be one of the best ways to show that they are valued and appreciated.
