Use this email template to announce an internal promotion to an employee. This email should follow a discussion and verbal agreement between the employee and their current manager to ensure the promotion aligns with the employee’s career goals.
An HR member can then send an email to make the promotion official and attach the updated employment contract.
Keep your email brief and use a positive tone to get your employee excited about their new role. Also, you can tweak and use this template when offering employees a new job in a different department.
