Dear Ms./Mr. ________,

I am writing this letter in order to recommend Ms. __________, (Designation), a valuable member of my team. I must point out that she has done exceptionally well over the past year. She has been able to achieve results beyond the targets. Besides, she has always been very prompt in her work.

I therefore propose that a performance bonus be considered for Ms. _________ because she is worthy of recognition and appreciation based upon her excellent work and dedication. I strongly believe it is vital that we reward people like her who are doing more than our targets in order to encourage them to work harder. It is my pleasure to point out that, in times when many of our competitors are having declining sales, we have been able to achieve good results.

It is always worth remembering that good employees do not come easily. We need to reward them for their high performance when we have such hard working, loyal and inspiring assets in our organization. It will serve as a stimulus for making more efforts towards increased sales.

Thank you for taking the time to consider this request. I am hopeful that the deserving employee will be rewarded.
