HR Question: Putting the Supervisor’s Name in an Offer Letter
Q: Is there a reason to have a supervisor’s name in an offer letter? In other words, is an offer letter that only lists a new hire’s supervisor as a title acceptable?
A: There is no definite reason to have a supervisor's name on an offer letter or any requirement to have the title on the document either.
The intent of the offer letter is to welcome the new hire and to ensure that the new hire has all of the information s/he will need regarding the terms and conditions of employment. If, in your environment, putting the supervisor's name on the document does not make sense, then feel free to leave it off the document.
We do recommend, however, that you do include a contact person that the new employee can go to for questions about the position or for any assistance the new employee may need.
