Dear [Recipients Name],

I would like to express my thanks in regards to the pay rise that I have just been awarded. I recognize that it is not normal to award pay rises at this point of the year, so I feel especially rewarded for my work so far. I now realize why our firm has such a great reputation for looking after its staff.

I feel that I am lucky to work for such a great firm and now feel more confident that my job is meeting your expectations. I will repay this faith and will continue to provide steady work in the future, as I feel proud to work for this company.

Thank you again for recognizing and rewarding my work so far, and the monetary gain is much appreciated.
