Dear Employee,

I know there have been plenty of times when I have not been an easy person to work for. I still regret the way I treated you the week I went on that juice cleanse. I gave up caffeine. I was on edge. We all remember the sordid details of that awful copy machine incident, so there is no reason to keep going on about it. I know I can be demanding. I can seem unreasonable. I ask a lot from you. My standards are high and can seem humanly impossible.

I know there are times when you feel taken for granted. I know it seems like I only see the negative things you do. It seems like I am always critiquing you. I know I rarely express my gratitude, but your hard work does not go unnoticed. I want to thank you.

Thank you for coming to work on time. Thank you for staying late to make those extra phone calls. Thank you for coming into the office even though you were feeling under the weather. Thank you for always being prepared for our meetings. Thank you for working through your lunch break last Tuesday. Thank you for coming to work on time every day. Thank you for all of your hard work. You are the reason we are successful.

You are bright and talented. Any company would be glad to have you on their payroll. I am lucky to have you on my team.

Thank you,

Your Boss
