A thank you letter from an employee's supervisor is a treasured form of positive recognition. Who knows better than the supervisor about the employee's job performance? So, no one is in a better position to write a thank you letter than the supervisor. Here's a sample thank you letter from a supervisor. Use the sample thank you letter as a template for your own supervisory thank you letters.
Remember that the key to effective employee recognition and thank you letters from supervisors, beyond your fundamental thankfulness, is to reinforce behavior that you'd like to see the employee continue.
You can hand write this thank you letter on a note card and a formal address is unnecessary.
I can't thank you enough for your willingness to take on the extra overtime hours this month. July is such a heavy time for vacations that staffing the line is difficult in a good year.
The only way we made it through July this year, with several people sick, and all of the scheduled vacations, was because of you. So, once again, I am grateful and appreciate your willingness to go the extra mile.
I can't do a lot for you, but as a token of our gratitude for your voluntary overtime work, enclosed is a $50.00 gift certificate to the grocery store at which you've mentioned shopping in the past. I wish that I could do more to thank you.
I want you to know that we really appreciate your efforts on our behalf.
