Thank You Email for Promotion

There is no better feeling at job than getting a promotion. Every employee would love to receive that one email which states ‘Congratulations! You have been promoted!’ Celebrating your achievement with your friends and family is an obvious outcome after promotion but professionalism and manners also demand something from you. An email rendering thanks to your boss will certainly depict your true professional manners and your boss might share it with his colleagues also.

The opening paragraph is the crux of your entire email and you must render your thanks in the opening few lines. You can keep it simple and let the recipient know what your actual feelings are on your recent promotion. Thank your boss, tell him you are delighted and accept the new designation happily.

Any specific details or guidelines regarding your new designation should be asked in the following paragraph. You can ask for any special help you required to perform your new duties or if already mentioned to you in your promotion email, appreciate the support offered to you. Let your boss know you appreciate the opportunity being provided to you and the level trust shown by him in your abilities.

Use the last few lines to express your appreciation for the new post, like “Thanks again! I shall look forward to deliver by best in the coming days and hope not to disappoint you for promoting to this new level.”
