When there’s a promotion in the workplace, there will be some bitter employees and there will be one particularly happy employee. Whether or not you have told the employee of their promotion is irrelevant to writing this letter because it needs to go out to the general work place regardless. Usually this is sent to the team that’s involved with the employee to let them know that they have a new manager or supervisor.
The promotion announcement email should be short and to the point, so start off by stating the person’s name and announcing that they are receiving a promotion.
Tell the recipient what job they were previously in and what new job they will be taking.
If the recipient is going to be under the command of the newly promoted employee, clarify that.
Ask the recipients to contact you if there are any questions or concerns.
Dear West Wing Associates,
As you may be aware, there was an opportunity for a promotion to manager in the West Wing of this building. After careful consideration, we have decided to promote Debby from Accounting to the main office manager. They were previously working as a head data analyst and she has shown tremendous skill and growth within the company.
If you have any questions or concerns about this promotion, please feel free to contact me in my office.
