Cynthia Measom reports:
"One way to thank your boss for a bonus is with a smile and a handshake. But if you want to make more of an impression, write a short note that expresses your gratitude...Select a high-quality note card on which to write the thank-you. A piece of notepaper and a plain envelope won't make the same impression...Express your appreciation in one or two sentences. For example, 'Thank you for the year-end bonus. It was a nice surprise and ended my year on a high note.'...Mention your gratitude toward the company: 'I appreciate being a part of a company that recognizes employee performance by sharing the financial rewards of its success.'...Make a statement about the future, if appropriate: 'I look forward to the coming year and the contributions I can make toward the success of my team, [my] department and the company.'...If you and your boss regularly communicate by email, a thank-you email is acceptable. However, a handwritten note provides a more personal touch...If you receive regular bonuses, writing a thank-you note each time could be overkill. Instead, take the time [to] give your boss a sincere thank-you in person."
