Sample Employee Appreciation Letters for Years of Service Awards

It's important to let your employees know how much you value their loyalty. A letter of thanks along with the long service award adds a personal touch that shows you truly care. However, finding the right words to appreciate an employee's service can be difficult. So we've created templates for letters expressing appreciation for different years of service. We've also added subject lines for those who prefer to send these out as e-mails.
