Writing an Appreciation Letter That Motivates

A Sample Appreciation Letter to an Employee

Dear Peter,

Thank you very much for the incredible job you did on this year's church picnic.

There wasn't one person I spoke with that didn't have a great time. Those same people couldn't stop talking about the BBQ ribs and the number of homemade deserts.

My favorite part was the pie judging contest. I still laugh when I think about the three judges you brought in from another church. They had a tremendous sense of humor.

Thank you so much again,

Before discussing how to write a letter of appreciation, first a few words about the benefits that such letters can offer. Letters of appreciation, or acknowledgment for services rendered, or for any other reason are generally well received, and you can rarely go wrong with them if you write them from the heart.

Such letters can express your appreciation for another person helping you in some way, doing you a service or even offering you an interview for a job - which often tips the balance when an employer is undecided. In business, a letter of appreciation is written to an employee who has made a special effort in their job, above and beyond what would normally be expected of them. Such recognition can have a lasting beneficial effect for both the employee and the employer.

Thank you and May God Bless You!
