Employee Reference Examples

I was searching on the internet for an example of a good employee reference but they were all boring. Anyway I did steal a few good words though.

I thought I should post my example reference online for future reference for me and anyone that wants to use it. I have written many of these over the years and I wish I had kept a copy of them all. We all know that time is money when you are in business so if you can save time by working from an example then this is good for business.

I tried to make it a bit more personal as these types of letters are very distant and official.
