    Re: He is being paid handsomly and is highly designated.

    I suspect he might actually mean 'designated', but he should be able to clarify himself. The guy could have a high designation, eg. Vice President.

    Okay, so "he had a high designation in his office" or "he was highly valued in his office". Are these sentences correct?

    Re: He is being paid handsomly and is highly designated.

    As I hinted, rather blatantly I thought, that would depend on what you mean by 'designation'. I also suggested that you should be the one who clarifies what you meant by 'designated'. Let's have that first.

    By designation I mean the post that he holds at his work place. The post he is working on at the moment.

    Yes, they're OK. The first is still a little weird. "He ranked highly in his office."

    Re: He is being paid handsomly and is highly designated.

    It's still a little awkward. We'd be more likely to say that he:

    - holds a senior position.
    - is in upper management.
    - holds an executive position.
    - has a corner office.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.

    "He held a senior position". "He had a corner office".

    Are these sentences correct? "The post that he holds at his work place. The post he is working on at the moment."

    Can you tell me why neither of those fragments is a sentence?

    What parts of speech are required in a sentence?
