A Promotion Letter is written by the company for two purposes: an employee is moved to a higher rank in the company, or it is with regards to the awareness of a company’s products. An employee promotion letter is to inform the employee of his newly appointed position whereas the product promotion letter is to create awareness of the company’s product to boost its sales. In case it’s a product promotion, inform them clearly about what is to be done including details such as specifications, task dates, and deadlines, etc.
An employee might be given promotion on the basis of his experience and his dedicated service to the company or on the basis of his excellent performance in lesser time. A Promotion letter must have a happy and an encouraging tone. This letter has to be written in a professional manner and should be kept formal. It should thank the employee for their services and commitment and that it is a pleasure having them in the company.
