Apology Letter to an Employee

Employees are not bound to apologize. It is sometimes the employer who should apologize if he finds himself behaving unfairly with the employee. We have been hearing that the bosses are horrible. Such assumptions are made due to logical reasons. Employers usually don’t find it necessary to apologize even when they realize they’re mistaken. This is unfair. It comes in manners as well as in business norms to apologize for a mistake no matter what is your rank. An apology letter from employer to an employee leaves a very good impression on the employee. You can imagine how unexpected it is when an employee receives an apology from an employer. The true respect is the one that is from heart. In order to get this genuine respect from your employees, try practicing apology after you make a mistake. It works wonders!
