How To Write A Grievance Letter

How To Write A Grievance Letter

There is no other better way to express your grievances through a well-written letter. This Videojug film shows you the basic things that you have to keep in mind while writing a grievance letter.

So you know someone's in a bad way, they may have lost someone close to them or somebody may have fallen ill, they may have lost their job. They have hit a sudden misfortune and you know it's a major misfortune. You know they are feeling it and you are sorry for them.

Well, do write, do write, it's just the whole business of writing. A lot of people want to write a letter simply and think why would you write a letter simply and don't get granted. Do, do write, the very active writing is the most important thing here.

You can just write to them to say, I'm so sorry to hear about whatever it was, whatever it was that happened, I'm thinking of you. Just a short note. Email, postcard, text.

At least, you took the trouble to write. That will give them some moral support. So, that's absolutely the first thing.

Please write it, do write it, if it occurs to you, write it. The second thing to think about is context. The fact that you are writing that friend has thought to write will help the person the other end put it into context.

They will think of you and that provides some context but you can also say, you can also refer back to things that have happened in the past, just, just refer back to things you shared and look forward to things you hope to share and just, just think about helping your friend you are acquainted to put this into context because everybody does suffer these draws and people get out the other side. So, you are trying to provide little bit of context but don't, whatever you do, don't presume anything, don't try to tell them how to handle it. They have probably got to handle it by themselves.

The most important thing is that you sympathize genuinely that you are there to help. So, the next thing is probably your offer to help. Maybe you would be able to put your offer and you offer it in a low key sort of a way.

Just say, and this is probably the best way to end it, “I will call you in a couple of days, I will be going close by in a couple of days. So, I will call you then.” Something that helps them to look forward and reminds them that you are there and suggest to them that things might get better. .
