Internal promotion announcement email

  • Inform staff about the transfer or promotion, so that they’re all aware of the employee’s new role and responsibilities.
  • Share the excitement of seeing colleagues grow within the company and congratulate them on their contribution so far.
  • Send the message to all employees that your organization supports internal movements and promotions.

Keep this email brief, but make sure to add any important details. For example, if the employee is starting their new job at an office in a different location, mention when they’ll be leaving their current office.
