Writing thank you letters
Sagen Sie "danke"!

Whenever we receive gifts, congratulations, an invitation to an event or a prize, we should ensure that we write a thank you letter or note. Even an e-mail is sufficient. A couple of lines can make all the difference. So when is it appropriate to write a thank you letter and what items should it include?

Everyday thank yous

Let's start with some core phrases. First you need to address the person correctly and refer to whatever you want to thank him or her for.

  • Example 1:
    Dear Janet,
    I just wanted to say thank you for the help you gave me on the report last week. I couldn't have done it without you!
  • Example 2:
    Dear Peter,
    Your flowers just arrived and are beautiful! How good of you to remember my birthday! Thank you so much.
    Kind regards
  • Example 3:
    Dear Team,
    Thank you for all your hard work last month. As the end results show, it has certainly paid off. Well done and keep it up!

It is clear that there might be many different reasons for writing a thank you. The examples above could be described as strategic, polite and praisegiving. The first example shows how someone who helps you achieve something at work can be given credit. It is a strategic thank you in the sense that this person did not necessarily have to help out and did; therefore, he or she is an ally. Not thanking him/her might even have a negative effect on your business relations. Below, we will look at other types of strategy in saying thank you.
