It's always a good idea to respond to a thank you letter, whether it's from your brother or your boss. When deciding how to respond, the key is to be sincere. Feel free to show your gratitude to the sender and see it as an opportunity to improve your relationship. You can answer in person, by phone, or by email.
Method 1 of 3: Reply to a colleague
Step 1. Express your gratitude to the sender by saying "please"
By taking part of your time to respond to a thank you letter, you can strengthen your bond with your coworker or boss. Whether you do it in person or by email, show your appreciation for the time the person took to send the email.
if “please” is not the word you want, express your gratitude and appreciation in your own words. For example, like this: "I really appreciate your attention."
Step 2. Tell the addressee how you have benefited from the task or project that you worked on together
In addition to the gratitude for the gratitude, set the stage well for the future by declaring the pleasure or benefit you get from working well together.
- “It was a very rewarding job. I learned a lot about this project and appreciated this opportunity. "
- “I hope I still have the opportunity to work with the design department. It's great fun! "

A response to a working thank you letter is not always expected or required. Therefore, in order not to take up too much of your colleague's time, keep your answer short.
