An offer letter or a letter of appointment is offered to an individual who has successfully passed all the interviews and tests conducted by an organisation to formally announce that he is now part of that organisation/company. Shown below is the format used by Zyxware Technologies to welcome the newest members of its highly dynamic team.
An offer letter is the first document using which a company contacts the employee who is selected for appointment. It contains the designation offered, general terms, salary figures, payment details, working hours etc. The employee can either accept or reject the offer. If he agrees to the conditions given in the Offer Letter, he will inform a convenient joining date. Then the company issues the Appointment Letter as a confirmation of his job.
