It’s important to thank colleagues who help you out at work. They need to hear that they are appreciated, and that you are willing to reciprocate when you can. Sending a thank you when someone helps you at work is not only polite, it serves to strengthen your relationship.

When writing a thank you letter to a coworker, it’s fine to keep the tone casual, as long as your format is correct. You can send a handwritten note, if you feel that it would be well received, or an email.

Use a professional salutation and closing. In your note, specify what you appreciated and how the person’s input was beneficial to the project. You should also offer to help them in the future if you can. Use first names, and always make sure you proofread for spelling and grammar.

Here are some sample thank you letters to send or email to a colleague.
