I want to highlight the good work a coworker has done for me by helping me out a lot and being really attentive and on top of things.
Per The Power of Thanks, I want to let their manager know. We don't have ThanksBot, so I'll be thanking via email.
Do I CC my peer, or just my own manager in my email to my peer's manager? Or do I address the email to my peer and CC their manager and my manager?
Would it be possible to do it via Slack or Teams? At my previous company, we used to have a Slack channel dedicated to shoutouts. Anytime a coworker would go out of their way to help me I used to tag them in that channel, describing what they did and how it helped me and my other coworkers (including managers) would react with emojis/congratulate them
If it's a recent occurrence:
If this is a longer-term thing across the performance review cycle:
Thanks for the feedback @Thoughtful Tarodactyl and @Alex! Based on @Alex's feedback, it's clear that I don't address my peer and his manager in the same email (particularly if I'm advocating a good review for him). Can I tell my coworker/peer that I advocated for him to his manager?
A few clarifications:
