Dear [Recipients Name],
It seems our dream has come to fruition. When we began this publication, we knew we wanted to be more than a bi-monthly magazine. We wanted to be in the hands of our readers once a week reporting on the culture and diversity that makes up Seattle. Now, we find ourselves prepared.
I have met with the pertinent players in this decision, and we feel it is, at last, time to go for it!
Even better news on the personal front for all of you writers and editors is that your 30 hours or less a week will go up to a full 40. It also means more pay! I know that must be music to your ears.
Give the ad department huge congratulations. Their dedication and skills have been a huge part of this reality. We will hand out an extra bonus at the second quarter for all sales people that meet or exceed their goals.

Further things to consider when writing endorsement letters to employees
Endorsement letters are letters written to give support or public approval to someone or something. In most cases, these letters are used to recommend or endorse individuals or programs. There are many reasons why you may want to write an endorsement letter. Some of these include endorsing or expressing support for a new bill, endorsing a student for an award, introducing and endorsing a politician, and endorsing a bid, just to mention a few. Writing endorsement letters for any of these scenarios will provide the information necessary to confirm the selected individual or item.
There are a few things you should keep in mind when writing endorsement letters. First of all, these are formal letters, and therefore they should have some professional approach. Use clear and specific language. Introduce yourself and give details about what you are endorsing. If you are endorsing a candidate for an award, for example, mention the award for which he/she is nominated. Mention how long you have known the candidate and the type of relationship you share. Clearly state the reasons behind your endorsement request. Make sure that the information you have provided is correct. End with an offer to answer any questions.
Letters to Employees
Letters to employees are letters written to individuals who work for an organization or for another person. If you are an employer or manage a group of employees, the chances are that you will have to write to the employees at some point. It could be an introduction letter to introduce a new product or service to salespersons, a rejection letter to turn down an employee's request for a promotion, or a thank-you letter to thank an employee for his/her hard work. You could also write a termination letter to fire an employee for his/her poor performance. Whatever the reason for your writing, the letter must be formal and professional.
All letters to employees must be addressed with the proper names of the recipients. But if your message is intended for all employees in general, you can address your letter as "To all employees". State the purpose of the letter. Convey your message briefly but clearly, highlighting all the important details. If the issue that you are writing about requires further explanation, make sure to offer your explanation in a way that the recipient can easily understand. Wrap it up with a positive note or a call to action.
