Eid Greeting Letter to Staff

Research has shown that businesses that respect their employee’s religion and celebrate and support them on their religious holidays benefit from this practice because this results in employee satisfaction which improves the turnover and loyal employees always work harder and with more commitment and dedication.

Eid is a religious festival celebrated by Muslims all over the world. It comes after a month of fasting and is celebrated with religious zeal and fervor. Wishing your Muslim staff members on this joyous occasion would make them feel valued and would give a clear message to all the other employees that any type of religious business would not be tolerated in the workplace.

Usually, an Eid greeting letter is written by the management to wish all staff members on this blissful occasion. The following points should be kept in mind when writing this letter.

  1. Since the letter is addressed to all the staff members, it should have a greeting like ‘Dear All’ or ‘Dear Staff’.
  2. The tone of the letter should be formal but festive and merry.
  3. The letter does not have to belong. In fact, it is better that you keep it short and concise.
  4. The tone and words used should be sincere and reflect the sender’s good wishes.
  5. After wishing the staff, you should announce any Eid vacations you are giving. State the dates and days clearly to avoid any ambiguity.
  6. If you are giving your employees a bonus, mention that in the letter.
  7. Clarify, if some of the staff members would stay on call during the holiday. Also, give out the contact details of the person who should be contacted in case of any queries.
  8. End the letter by greeting the staff one more time and wishing them a blessed Eid.

Always proofread and edit the letter thoroughly before sending, as spelling and grammatical mistakes undermine the letter’s authority.
