Recognition Letter Example - For a Volunteer, a Speaker, and an Employee

Recognition Letter Example for a Guest Motivational Speaker


Your speech last week still has me excited about how I can personally make a difference in my own circle of influence. It was almost like you were speaking directly to me when you spoke about prioritizing our lives so that we have no regrets.

I truly appreciate the way you shared your very personal story of your childhood and how that negative experience shaped and molded you to know that you needed to make a radical change. Most of us would have used that experience as an excuse; however, you used it as a spring board to success. Again, all I can really say is thank you and you have made a difference in my life.

Recognition Letter Example for a Job Well Done

Dear Raymond,

Thank you so very much for your dedication and attention to detail in preparing the end of year reports for our department.

I know it would not have been remotely possible without your direct input and tremendous knowledge of our Company.

You are a true professional and it is my privilege to be able to learn from you.

Please except this well deserved gift as my appreciation for a job well done!

Thomas Jefferson

Your Recognition Letter Should Be Meaningful

Its very important that any letter for recognition must be well thought out and be for a meaningful reason. Especially if you want the employee receiving the letter to feel good and proud of their contribution. If it isn't not only will the employee receiving the award not care it will cause others to discredit and not trust you.

The reason this would be the case is that your average employee is very connected with what you say and how you say it. Have you ever heard the term blowing smoke up your _ _ _? If you hand out recognition or appreciation letters for virtually no meaningful reason they are discounted and your credibility is thrown into question.

Bottom line is make sure the employee or employees did something meaningful.

Thank you and may God bless you!
