Dear ............,


Sample Answer:

Dear Mr Alan,

I would like to express my appreciation for the great initiative to take employees' feedback for selecting the employee of the year. Personally, I would recommend Alfred Simmon for the title this year.

Alfred is an achiever and his unparalleled leadership has brought innovation and enviable success to our company. As a project manager, his responsibility is to distribute works to the team members, coordinate them, liaison to the sales team, deliver the projects to the clients in time and everything in between.

His dedication and friendly attitude have inspired many junior employees to work hard and be loyal to the company. He is a leader who sets examples to his subordinates and this is exactly what a project manager in our company should be like. Nobody, in my opinion, deserves the title more than he does. By choosing him the employee of the year, we can show our recognition to the worthies employee in the office.

Yours sincerely,

Daniel Cabin
