Hello Steward, I am writing this message to draw your attention to a serious matter. I have gone through the monthly performance of all the employees and you stood last on the list. Your performance made me disenchanted as you were in my good books.

You were given the task of increasing your sales target but you made only a few sales. This happened because of your not coming regularly. Your bad performance has overall affected the organization. I have always seen you working diligently with honesty and a firm attitude but your current report disappointed me a lot. I want you to be on the toppers list.

If you are going through any issues then you can discuss them with me. I will try to assist you in the best possible way. Next month, I want to see you performing well otherwise I will take strict action against you.
