- providing above average customer service,
- going beyond his means to give what a customer needs without violating company policies,

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.
