Here is a sample above and beyond recognition letter. It should either be handwritten or printed on company letterhead. The main attribute of this type of letter is sincerity. A sample letter can give an idea, but the letter must be personal and heartfelt. Many times, employees will frame a recognition letter or at least show it to all their friends and family. This is one reason why giving a formal letter is a good idea.
Sample Above and Beyond Recognition Letter
Dear First Name of Employee,
We know that in a company with over 2,000 employees, it is easy to get lost in the shuffle. However, we want to thank you for the excellent presentation that you pitched to our advertising department today. It was clear to see by this meeting that you did your homework. You are very well versed on our products and processes and did a superior job.
Because of your hard work, we not only was able to seal a deal with a new company, but you helped make the company money. I have enclosed a bonus check in the amount of $2,000. While I understand it is not much, we like to reward those who go above and beyond what they have been asked.
I want to personally thank you for being a team player and for keeping this project on task. Having dedicated employees, like yourself, on board here at Wellman is what gives us the stellar reputation in the industry. Your ideas, implementation of new processes and ability to be flexible is just what our company needs in leadership. We will continue to monitor your progress and hope there will be bigger and better things for you here at Wellman Corporation.
