Dear [Recipient first name],

I hope this letter finds you well. As I continue to prepare for my return to work following my maternity/adoption/shared parental leave, I would like to formally request the use of Keeping In Touch (KIT) days.

I believe that utilising KIT days will enable me to stay connected with the workplace, keep abreast of any developments within the team or company, and maintain my skills and knowledge during my leave period. Additionally, it will allow me to ease back into work gradually, ensuring a smoother transition upon my return to my regular duties.

I propose to use [number of KIT days requested] KIT days over the course of my leave period. These days will be utilized for attending team meetings, training sessions, or any other relevant work-related activities that may arise during my absence.

I am committed to maintaining open communication with you and the team throughout my leave, and I am eager to contribute in any capacity that is suitable and beneficial for both myself and the company.

Please let me know if my request for KIT days is approved, and if there are any specific procedures or guidelines I should follow when scheduling and using these days.

Thank you for considering my request. I look forward to your response and to continuing our positive working relationship.

To view this you will need to make a purchase.
