My name is ____________ and I have worked closely with __________ as her manager for the last ___________ years at the Portland branch of Big National Bank. I believe that promotions should be reserved for people who can display ingenuity, deal with stressful situations, and be friendly and polite to both customers and fellow employees. __________ has all of these qualities in spades, and that is why I am giving her the highest recommendation for this new position.
As a banker, ___________ has a head for numbers and quick calculations. However, her best traits are her interpersonal skills and creativity. She instated a filing system that helped organize our information and that increased efficiency by 12%. She has consistently been rated as a "10" on our customer feedback sheets and always manages personable interactions with clients, even during the 5 o'clock rush. She is patient and unshakably calm, and is always willing to help fellow employees when the workload gets overwhelming.
It will be a huge loss to have _________ leave us, but I believe that she is made for bigger and better things than we can offer. You will be lucky to have such a dedicated, efficient employee in your division. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach me at ________________.
