I received an appointment letter. Below the signature of the director of human resource, there are some abbreviations, as follows:

Signature

Name

Encls.

c.c. Hd(COMP) DoF

RC/CL/aj

Specifically, what does this "RC/CL/aj" stand for? Does it mean the options for accepting/declining the offer?

    On old-fashioned business correspondence, this is how they’d indicate who dictated it (capital initials) and who typed it (small initials.) I’d make this an answer but I don’t know what the third set of initials means! Mar 10, 2020 at 18:51

    @ErnestFriedman-Hill Thanks. The capital initial is indeed the initial of the "Name".

  • @ErnestFriedman-Hill perhaps two persons dictated and one typed?

    Could it be the second set of initials is someone who reviewed/approved it? Mar 10, 2020 at 19:18

On old-fashioned business correspondence, this is how they’d indicate who dictated it (capital initials) and who typed it (small initials.) I am not sure what the middle set of initials mean: perhaps a second author, or a reviewer for compliance purposes. Here is a bit of corroborating evidence for the general plan.
