Should You Thank Your Boss for Giving You a Bonus?
It’s always a good idea – and good manners and courtesy – to thank your boss for giving you a bonus, regardless of the amount.
A simple “thank you” shows appreciation for the extra money, and can go a long way in maintaining a good relationship with your employer.
Of course, no one should give a bonus to receive thanks in return. But it will certainly mean a lot to your boss to hear how appreciated you feel.
It only takes a few minutes to write up a thank you note, and it has a huge impact on the person receiving it – there is really no downside to doing it.
What to Say When Giving Your Boss a Thank You Note for A Bonus
When you’re ready to write your note, there are a few things you should keep in mind.
First and foremost, don’t stress over what you want to say and try to write the perfect note – just be yourself and be genuine.
Thanking your boss because it’s “the right thing to do” won’t have the same impact as truly expressing how grateful you are.
A simple, “Thank you so much for the bonus, it was very welcomed. It’s comforting to know that you trust in my abilities, you know I will always give 100% to the team. Thank you!” is enough.
Keep it short, sweet, and to the point – your boss will appreciate it.
If you want a starting point, please feel free to use any of the examples from above and change the details to suit your exact situation.
Oh, and congrats on the bonus!
