Letter to Compliment Employee’s Performance

One of the things that humans crave is appreciation and to be complemented. In day-to-day business work, not all employees perform the same. Every business has different kinds of employees and while some perform on average, there are others that work exceptionally. It is, therefore, important to differentiate the hard workers from average workers by complimenting their performance.

A compliment letter to an employee for his performance is written for the same purpose. In a compliment letter, the employee should be complimented generously as it is a known fact that compliment letters help improve the performance of employees to even better and encourage other employees to work hard. Therefore, all mature bosses never forget to compliment their employees for their hard work. The letters given below can be used to appreciate an employee for his performance.
