Say Thank You for the Bonus

Do you want to know the best way to say thank you for the bonus you just received? Most people express their appreciation verbally, but few remember, or even think, to write a note to express their gratitude. Somehow, sending a thank you note has become unfashionable!

Sending a thank you note when you’ve been lucky enough to receive a bonus (and so many people don’t get ever get a bonus!) is simple good manners. A well-written note of thanks will also make a good impression on your boss!

People do like to to be appreciated and bosses are no different, so why not make your boss happy next time you receive a bonus, and drop them a quick thank you note to show your gratitude? After all, your boss will have either allocated your bonus from his own pocket, or will have put your name forward to make sure you were in line for a bonus payment. And that action has to be worth a thank you note, doesn’t it?

It’s best to be prompt and to send your thank you note to your boss straight away! For every day that you delay, you take something away from the meaning of your thank you note … so roll up your sleeves and get writing, right now!

Here’s a couple of sample thank you notes you could send if you have just received a bonus.

Dear Martin

Thank you so much for the surprise we received today, when you told the team that a special Christmas bonus is to be paid to everyone in the team this year.

I’m delighted to accept the bonus and I wanted to thank you personally for approving this generous and completely unexpected gift.

I really appreciate your spirit of giving.

Dear Jane

Please accept my thanks for the performance bonus you told me about this morning. It was very generous, and very welcome.

I wanted to tell you how much it means to me to have my hard work last year formally recognised in this way.

Thank you again.
