A recommendation letter contains the following information:

  • the date when the recommendation was made,
  • the name of the person doing the recommendation,
  • the details of the person to whom the recommendation will be sent,
  • the reason of writing a recommendation letter,
  • the date on which instances occurred to help validate the recommendation,
  • the name of the person to be recommended, and
  • other additional information that the writer of the letter wanted to highlight.

Some of the reasons why a person receives a recommendation letter is because of

  • doing a job that he is not supposed to do but because of circumstances has done it,
  • helping clients or workmates in need,
  • providing above average customer service,
  • going beyond his means to give what a customer needs without violating company policies,
  • good conduct and character, and
  • being excellent on what he or she is doing.

Recommendation letters usually arrive during unexpected moments. Do not expect to get one just because you have done something great. Rather, always do your best and make sure that you are performing your job the way you should.

Being able to receive a recommendation is truly special. Not just because of the rewards, additional credits or attention that you may get from it, but the feeling that a person or two have appreciated what you are doing. This makes someone validate that he is doing well.

Whenever you think that a person, most especially an employee, have helped you or is doing great, do not hesitate to write a letter of recommendation for him or her. It is a simple way of saying “thank you for taking care of me during my stay” or “i truly appreciate how you give your utmost dedication to your job.” It may be just a piece of paper, but for someone to whom it is intended, it is a great source of pride and joy that will motivate him or her to push herself more and do better.

A letter of recommendation may be given to anyone whom you think deserves to receive one. It can be written to recommend a colleague, a subordinate, an employee that have helped you during your stay in their establishment, a worker who has given great customer service or even to a well-performing student.
