A promotion letter is a letter from an employer, that announces the promotion of an employee for his assertive contribution to the company or the workplace. It is a formal letter that includes the employee’s future designation, his salary increment and the policies which would fall under the new designation the employee will be holding. Also if any new bond company would like to initiate with the employee should be clearly mentioned in the letter.
Format of Promotion Letter
The letter should be brief and always try to be to the point. As this is more like an announcement, there will not be any rosy words or decorative phrases. The sentences and style will be as simple as possible and every clause should be clear between the employer and the employee. The letter will also be encouraging and appreciating to the employee for his good work and it should be explaining how hopeful and happy the company would be if the employee continues working with them.
How to Write a Promotion Letter
To start with, the letter will first announce the new designation. Then, the salary increment and the details about other policies will take place. Salary increment should be specifically mentioned and the employee’s notice period should be also present on the letter. All the general and designation specific policies should be clearly mentioned. Overall, the letter will be formal, statement-oriented and colluded with good wishes. A promotion should also contain appreciation from the company.

When writing an offer letter to an employee the idea is to keep the requirements and negotiations with the employee in mind. It should not be as a letter that might likely get rejected. An offer letter should always match the company and market standards.
