Letter to Respond to Complaint on Manager’s Attitude

Employees do not usually reach employers with their complaints. However, when they do, it is the employer who is responsible for responding to the complaints. When a response to a complaint is written that has been made by an employee it should be made sure that;

  • The employee is not criticized for taking his complaint to the employer.
  • He responded with a tone of appreciation and a clear impression that his complaint is valued.
  • Ensure the employee that his name will not be disclosed especially if the complaint is about senior members.
  • Ensure the employee that his complaint is read, and appreciated and prompt action will follow this appreciation as well.

This letter can be written in order to respond to an employee’s complaint about the manager’s attitude.
