Letter of Appreciation to Your Boss Templates


A thank you note never goes unnoticed. If you’re feeling grateful, put your thoughts into words with a letter of appreciation to your boss. Below are a few outlines, though using specific and personal stories is recommended. Send your letter of appreciation at the end of the year, around boss’s day (in October), or after a monumental moment in your career (like a promotion or project wrap up).
