In the fast-paced world of business, it’s important to show gratitude and appreciation whenever someone does something nice for you. Whether it’s a company that performs a favor for your business, your workplace that bestows an award on you, or a company that provides a complimentary service, sending a thoughtful thank you note is a great way to express your appreciation.

There is so much to appreciate at work.

Thank-you note examples for different business settings

Taking the time to send a thoughtful thank you note is a simple yet powerful way to show your appreciation in a business setting. Whether it’s to thank a company or hotel for a favor, show appreciation for an award, or give thanks for a complimentary service, expressing gratitude is always appreciated and can help strengthen professional relationships.

Thank-you note to a company or hotel for a favor performed:

Dear [Company or Hotel Name],

Dear George:

Just a note to say thank you so much for making my life easier today. I appreciate your willingness to change the date of my December 15th meeting so I could avoid the tension involved with such a tight travel schedule.

As I explained on the phone, I received a call from a major client who set up a meeting with all their senior executives and “requested” I attend to explain our programs on that same day (December 15). Although I was able to schedule a flight to return to Chicago at 5:15 p.m., the timing would have been too close for my comfort –- and I’m sure yours, as mediator in these negotiations. Thanks to you, I can now both meet with my client and negotiate for funds on behalf of KPGM.

I know that volunteer work in a professional organization can sometimes be a thankless job, so here’s a sincere “thanks” from a fellow member who means it!



Thank-you note to show appreciation for an award bestowed:

Dear [Workplace or Organization Name],

I am writing to express my deepest gratitude for the [award/title] that you recently bestowed upon me. It is an incredible honor to be recognized in this way and I am truly humbled by the recognition.

I also want to thank you for providing such a supportive and nurturing work environment. I have learned so much from my colleagues and I am grateful for the opportunities that you have given me to grow and develop professionally.

Thank you once again for this incredible honor. I will continue to work hard and strive for excellence in all that I do.

Fellow NYPD Members:
Thank you so much for honouring me with the Member of the Year award. The leadership of our local chapter provides so many opportunities to serve the community and our professional industry group it was not difficult at all to get involved in several projects. I consider the time well-spent and a contribution to my own personal and professional growth.
I’m appreciative of your recognizing my work in this way and of having the opportunity to interact with such a group of dedicated colleagues.

Thank-you note to give thanks for a complimentary service provided:

I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the [complimentary service] that you provided to [me/our business]. Your generosity and kindness are truly appreciated, and it was such a pleasure to work with your team.

Your attention to detail and commitment to excellence are truly exceptional, and I was so impressed with the quality of the service you provided. I will be sure to recommend your company to my colleagues and friends, and I look forward to working with you again in the future.

Thank you again for your exceptional service and support.

Warm regards,

Dear Mr. Siwash,

Last night, my husband and I enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Cru, compliments of your maître d’, Lyle Favreau. I wanted to express my appreciation for his graciousness and for your restaurant’s overall devotion to customer satisfaction.

Two weeks ago, during our anniversary dinner, we received the wrong order and then had to wait an additional half hour for our entrées. We didn’t complain (as longtime patrons, we’re willing to forgive an occasional off night), but Mr. Favreau nevertheless refused to let us pay and furthermore insisted we come back again, his treat, to enjoy, as he put it, “the kind of anniversary celebration you deserve.”

It is not uncommon, of course, for a restaurant to offer a free entrée or appetizer when there is a problem with the meal. That wasn’t enough for Mr. Favreau, though, and we were truly impressed and touched by his determination that we enjoy an exemplary dining experience.

I commend you for having the city’s best maître d’, and my husband and I look forward to many more memorable evenings at Cru. We wish your company continued success.
