Sample Farewell Letter
- From the Boss

goodbye work!

A farewell letter is one of the last ways you can represent yourself well.

Use this real-life goodbye letter for work to help craft your final message:

To all Colleagues and Friends,

As those close to me know, I am not good with goodbyes so I do apologize to those who feel offended that I have left having written only this letter, without personally shaking their hand and exchanging best wishes.

I have so many people to thank for their support and dedication that it is impossible to personally get to see you all with the short time that was available.

I truly am humbled to have worked with such a group of "get in and get it happening people" and I am so proud of the achievements that you have accomplished both in the operation and (for quite a lot of you) for your own personal accomplishments.

To the company and the team, the efforts and contributions have been outstanding. I have learnt so much from you and now possess a greater understanding of the difficulties that a work environment such as yours encounters every day.
To those of you that I had the opportunity to coach and or set goals for, I commend each of you for your achievements and hope that you continue to succeed through life journeys.

I could go on listing people and groups but in the end the message would still be: I have truly enjoyed my time here and have been well supported with the work and outcomes we have achieved.

I leave this place with great confidence in the people here, knowing that they are capable of overcoming any hurdles that will come up, singularly, and more importantly, together.
We have managed to assemble a very competent and practical group that provide excellent support to the management team. This provides me with a sense of pride and gratitude that is indescribable.

I am heading to a new company to take on a managerial role starting next week.
This will keep me off the streets for a while and provide plenty of challenges that I need.

I can be contacted if required on my mobile.
I wish you all a Healthy, Safe and Prosperous Year.

Thanks, regards and best wishes,

John Whatsmyname
