Anne Hester Manager of Human Resources, Company Name
City, State, Zip Code
Dear Ms. Hester,
On June 1, 2014, I was placed on a six-month employment probation period due to my lackluster productivity and my persistent habit of calling in for unscheduled time off. Over the past three months, I have taken accountability for my actions and have significantly improved my performance. Therefore, I request that I be removed from the probation program early and be reinstated with full employment privileges.
My manager, Thompson Holt, has had nothing but praise for my turnaround and has offered to submit a letter of recommendation to you, if that is something that you require. I would also be willing to have a face-to-face meeting with yourself and any other member of management to discuss my recent performance and my change in attitude.
Putting my job in jeopardy was an immature thing to do. It harmed the company and it harmed the impression that the company has of me. I realize my mistakes, take full ownership of them and have worked hard to resolve them.
Please contact me at 000-000-0000 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss this further and set up a personal meeting at your convenience.
