50 Sincere Goodbye Messages to Write in a Farewell Card

best wishes for leaving job

When leaving a job, you may want to write your coworkers, boss, or employees a farewell message. You may also want to say thank you in your message.

Writing a pleasant goodbye note may encourage others to remember you fondly. Saying goodbye is #8 on the list of 15 things to do before leaving a job. 

At the office, the farewell message is usually sent via email when sending the same message to a group of people such as a team or others that you had contact with. When saying goodbye to one person, such as your boss, mentor, or close coworker, you may want to write a handwritten note instead of sending an email. Handwritten notes may feel more personal, and the person is likely to keep it longer than an email.

You don't have to thank or say goodbye to everyone on the list below with a farewell message. Wanting to thank someone on that list, may be what brought you to this post. So I listed others that you may want to write a message to that you may not have considered otherwise.

Who you may want to send a farewell note to

  • Your team (could use a group email)
  • Your co-workers that were not on your team (could use a group email)
  • Your boss (individual note is best unless you don't have anything special to say to the boss. And then you can include your boss in the group email)
  • Your employees (individual if you have specific things to say to one person, use group for your entire team)
  • Anyone else you had contact with that you feel like saying goodbye to or thanking before your last day

If you know of someone else that is leaving, you may want to send them a message. If they send you a farewell email, you could reply and write them a farewell message

What to include in your farewell thank you message

Below are some suggestions for what types of things to include in your farewell note. They are followed by sections of examples notes written to a boss, employee, and coworkers.

  • Your last day date, in case anyone wants to say good-bye to you in person (if you work at the same location) or reply to your message.
  • Where and what your next job is. People always wonder! But that's entirely up to you. Don't share about your next job if you are not comfortable doing so.
  • If sending an email, the subject line could be:
    • Farewell and best wishes
    • My last day is [Date]
    • Goodbye and contact info
    • Thank you
  • Message content which could include:
    • I look forward to our paths crossing again in the future.
    • I enjoyed working with you.
    • Please stay in touch.
    • It's been an honor working with you.
    • Compliments of the team or to an individual
    • There are more examples in the notes below
  • The thank you message
    • Usually, I recommend being specific when thanking someone. However, that is nearly impossible to do in a group email. So, your farewell note might feel generic, which is okay in this situation.
    • Thank you for all of your help and support
    • Thank you for being great to work with
    • I am grateful to have worked with such a wonderful group of people
    • I appreciate the time you spent mentoring me and helping me to grow my skills
  • Contact information, if you want to stay in contact with people! Maybe you don't. Only provide contact information if you are genuinely okay with someone contacting you in the future. If you don't want a bunch of Facebook friend invites from acquaintances, don't include your Facebook info.

      • Social media accounts like LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
      • Email address
      • Phone number
      • A link to your website/blog if you have one.

Farewell Message Format

Your note can look like the example that follows. For more information on the layout of a thank-you note, see these 5 easy steps.

Dear [Person's Name],

Your Message (this is the middle section).

Second paragraph (optional).

Third paragraph (optional).

Closing (such as kind regards, thanks again, etc.),

Your Name

Note: words in [brackets] in the examples below, should be replaced appropriately for your note.

The format of the farewell examples messages will be the same, so only the middle section of the note is included in the examples below when the note has only 1 paragraph. You can add additional paragraphs to any of the samples if you desire. You can also combine wording from different examples into your note.

Examples to be sent via group email to multiple people

Note: This section of examples is for when you are sending one email to multiple people. Since its being sent to a group, you will not be thanking anyone for anything specific. Some of the examples will feel generic and simple. These emails are more casual and could be for a boss sending an email to employees or coworkers to coworkers.

Goodbye Messages for a Colleague That’s Leaving the Company

best wishes for leaving job

Posted by Brad Phillips on September 15, 2013

How To Give A Memorable Goodbye Speech

It’s your last day on the job. Your colleagues have gathered in a conference room, gotten you a few nice going away gifts, and purchased a cake in your honor.

Suddenly, your co-workers begin chanting: Speech! Speech! Speech! 

Your adrenaline surges, your heart begins pounding. And, if you’re like most people, you’ll mutter something like this:

“Okay, well, I wasn’t expecting to say anything, but, well, I guess what I’d like to say is that it’s been an amazing eight years here. You’re all an amazing team, you’re like a second family, and we’ve really been through some ups and downs together…okay, a lot of downs together. But I will really miss you, although this isn’t really goodbye, because I’m going to stay in touch with all of you…whether you like it or not!”


If your goal is to leave a final, strong impression on your bosses and co-workers, that’s not a great way to do it.

I’ve been guilty of giving that bland goodbye speech as well. When I left Nightline in 1999, for example, the staff gathered in a conference room to send me off. Ted Koppel, the host of the program was there, as were the executive producer, all of the senior producers, on-air correspondents, and others. Frankly, I was overwhelmed that so many important people thought enough of me to have gathered in my honor. I made it through a few sentences, got emotional, and abruptly ended my speech.

As I look back at that moment, I wish I could do it over again. If I could, my goodbye speech would have looked more like this:

“Most people are nervous to meet Ted Koppel. I know I was. When I finally worked up the nerve to say hello, I confidently stuck out my hand and introduced myself. I then promptly took a step forward and caught my foot on an open file cabinet drawer, which sent me plummeting to the ground. (pause) It took me a good two weeks to get past that humiliation.

When I did, I quickly learned that this was a place that offered endless opportunities to a young staffer, far more than I had earned. You were open to my story ideas, welcomed me into edit rooms, sent me on video shoots, and gave me the opportunity to make some very public mistakes. People know Nightline is a great show, but they probably don’t know how great its staff is at making a young, aspiring journalist feel like a fully initiated part of the team.

My mother tells me that my grandfather never missed a Nightline. He died in 1982, when I was nine-years-old and when Nightline was only two. To this day, every night when I hear that opening theme music, I think of him, and how proud he would have been to know that his grandson worked here, with all of you. Thank you.”

There’s no specific formula for an effective goodbye speech, but the version I drafted above offers a few ideas:

  1. Anecdotes work well. The first is humorous and self-effacing; the second is heartfelt and offers a bit of personal biography.
  2. In between, you’ll find a serious point—a thank you for not making an inexperienced staffer feel so inexperienced.
  3. The remarks are purposefully short but pack a lot of content into remarks that take just 90 seconds to deliver.
  4. And, best of all, it’s original. No one else could deliver those remarks, because no one else had all of those specific experiences.

The next time you leave a job, challenge yourself. Deliver a goodbye speech that will be remembered long after you finish your slice of goodbye cake.
