Companies announce promotions of employees in many ways. However, the most common way is by email

Depending on the nature of the industry and the position, the news might also be shared on the company website. For senior positions, the media may be notified as well. What to Include in a Promotion Announcement?

Once a job promotion has been offered to and accepted by an employee, the news will typically be shared in an email message to the company. The promotion announcement will either be sent by Human Resources or by the management of the company.

Here is what to include when you are writing up a job promotion email:

A promotion announcement should cover several points in order to effectively explain the selection decision, promote and support the promoted employee in his or her new position, and to congratulate them on their achievement.

When writing a promotion announcement, be sure to include a short summary of the employee’s old and new roles, and to mention any pertinent accomplishments during their tenure with the company. You are, in effect, telling the “story” of the employee’s history with your organization in order to justify their promotion. This is particularly important to do if the employee was one of multiple candidates for promotion.

It is appropriate to include some background information like the employee’s education and certifications.

In conclusion, you will want to encourage everyone to welcome and congratulate them on their new position.
