It is good practice to reward employees whenever they do something significant for the organization. While monetary and material rewards go down very well, emails of sincere appreciation also play a major role in motivating employees and increasing their job satisfaction.
Good things to include in this type of email are:
● A summary of the good work the employee has done.
● Specific appreciative feedback on this work.
● Recognition of the significance of this work for the individual’s team and the wider organization.
● An indication of the company’s expectations from the individual going forward.
