Best consolidation of 100 Farewell Message to Colleagues After Resignation. As it is your last day with us, we'd like to thank you for being a great colleague.

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.

28 Good Farewell Thank You Messages to Colleagues

last day wishes to colleagues

If you’re leaving your job, you will need to tie up lots of loose ends. Leaving a positive impression on your colleagues is vital. How do you gracefully notify colleagues of your departure? Let’s talk about the perfect farewell message.

Here’s a tip: Want to make sure your writing always looks great? Grammarly can save you from misspellings, grammatical and punctuation mistakes, and other writing issues on all your favorite websites.

The Perfect Timing

Sending farewell messages too early is a bad idea. People will inevitably stop by your office to wish you well face-to-face, and that could interfere with finishing up your last work tasks. After coworkers have said their goodbyes, they may feel awkward when they see you lurking about for another week. On the other hand, if you wait until the last minute, they may not have time to say a proper farewell. When is the best time? A day or two before your last day, when you’ve completed the majority of your duties, is a fitting time to send out a parting email. Then, when your fellow workers bid you farewell, you’ll have a chance to spend a few moments with each one on a personal basis.

The Perfect Words

What should you say in a farewell message? It will set the tone for your entire departure, so it’s essential to get it right. Of course, you’re excited about your future, but harping on how prestigious or lucrative your next position is may create jealousy. However, if you sound bummed about leaving, you will give the impression that your next job is (or will be) a dud. Aim for balance. Tell your workmates where you’re heading, but make the focus of the letter about them. You might express gratitude for individuals who helped to train you, reflect on some of your team’s greatest achievements, and make everyone laugh with an amusing anecdote. Close with a few words of fun advice, such as a quote from a respected expert in your field.

Don’t Forget

For networking purposes, include several ways to contact you. For example, you can include a link to your LinkedIn page, a phone number, and an email address. (You’ll probably lose access to work emails and phone numbers, so personal contact information is best.) If you don’t have your next position lined up already, ask some key players if you can use them as references.

Keep It Short and Sweet

How long should a farewell letter or email be? Do you groan when an extremely long work email shows up in your inbox? Have some empathy! A brief, friendly note will bring feelings of appreciation rather than disgruntled sighs. However, you do want to say enough that your message doesn’t sound flippant. In other words, “See ya!” isn’t thoughtful enough to create the positive vibes you’re aiming for.

An Example Farewell

Whether you send individual or group goodbyes, you can follow the same basic template.

What To Do After Your Letter Is Sent

Don’t forget that actions speak louder than words. Besides writing a nice letter, you want to leave a positive impression with the coworkers you’ll be leaving and the new one who will replace you. Why not spend a moment on your last day to reflect on your work space? How should it look for the next person? After all, your working area says a lot about you and your feelings for the company. Make sure your desk is tidy. Remove all personal items from your work computer and the work space. If you want to go the extra mile, leave a note for your successor to welcome them and give helpful hints so they can jump right into the swing of things.

Leaving a favorable impression when you leave a job is an important loose end to tie. Give high priority to writing a brief, upbeat farewell letter for your colleagues. If you let your colleagues know about your departure gracefully, your transition will be smooth.

50 Sincere Goodbye Messages to Write in a Farewell Card

last day wishes to colleagues

Since the last post on Saying Goodbye to coworkers, there have been quite a few requests on providing some sample goodbye letters to co-workers and manager. So here is a compilation of some recommended ones, and one ‘on the lighter side’ – the ‘one’ that has traveled around the world through Emails.

Some Important Tips before you say Goodbye to work:

  • When to send the goodbye Email?
    Once you are done with wrapping up all your tasks. Preferably, on the last day at work or the day before. Once this Email goes out, quite possibly many of your colleagues would be coming over to say a personal adieu and you might also want some time to chat with them. Make sure you are done with all your tasks at hand before sending out the mass email.
  • Make it personal.
    Add a few lines on how someone (refer to names of those who you wish to endorse) had helped you during your tenure in the organization and graciously thank all, even though there could be some you would not want to. And take the “personal” to another level, if you have time before you have to pack your belongings and leave the office, go and meet your co-workers before you leave, some of them might find it awkward (and some times a strange guilt trancends those who witness a layoff) and they might not have the courage to come say bye to you. Give your adieu a personal touch. You may even add a few stories of your (good) experience with the team, the company or the culture.. a subtle humor would work as well.
  • Make it easy for your colleagues to contact you.
    Always add your personal contact numbers and/ email address to stay in touch here after.
  • CC yourself on the goodbye letter (on your personal Email ID so those who want to respond back find it easier to do so) and more so for your personal records.
  • Strengthen your network.
    If you have already not done so, invite your co-workers and those you would want to stay in touch to LinkedIn.

Sample Farewell Email from Employee to Manager

 

Hi John,

As I informed you in our meeting last week, my last working day at ABC is next Friday, Sept. 29th. I want to take a few minutes today to convey my thoughts in being part of your team for the last 2 years.

I have been extremely satisfied with my work at ABC, working under your guidance has been a learning and an enjoyable experience. I thank you for your support and encouragement during these two years.

However, I feel that it is time for me to move on to new opportunities. This decision was not an easy one and it took a lot of consideration.

On the Lighter Side

This is a classic one – though not recommended in any way (this email has made its way through the email chain letters all across the world).
It is always recommended to depart on good terms and not get in the name calling or accusations when writing your farewell email. But some people have an amazing knack to coat a venomous email in slick sugar which eventually brings smiles to all and becomes a classic. Enjoy… but do not copy and paste for your own farewell email!

Keep in mind the tips shared before onSaying Goodbye to Work – The Right Way

Dear Co-Workers and Managers,

As many of you probably know, today is my last day. But before I leave, I wanted to take this opportunity to let you know what a great and distinct pleasure it has been to type “Today is my last day.”

For nearly as long as I’ve worked here, I’ve hoped that I might one day leave this company. And now that this dream has become a reality, please know that I could not have reached this goal without your unending lack of support. Words cannot express my gratitude for the words of gratitude you did not express.

I would especially like to thank all of my managers both past and present but with the exception of the wonderful Mr. ABC: in an age where miscommunication is all too common, you consistently impressed and inspired me with the sheer magnitude of your misinformation, ignorance and intolerance for true talent. It takes a strong man to admit his mistake – it takes a stronger man to attribute his mistake to me.

Over the past seven years, you have taught me more than I could ever ask for and, in most cases, ever did ask for. I have been fortunate enough to work with some absolutely interchangeable supervisors on a wide variety of seemingly identical projects – an invaluable lesson in overcoming daily tedium in overcoming daily tedium in overcoming daily tedium.

And to most of my peers: even though we barely acknowledged each other within these office walls, I hope that in the future, should we pass on the street, you will regard me the same way as I regard you: sans eye contact.

But to those few souls with whom I’ve actually interacted, here are my personalized notes of farewell:

To [ ], I will not miss hearing you cry over absolutely nothing while laying blame on me and my coworkers. Your racial comments about [ ] were truly offensive and I hope that one day you might gain the strength to apologize to him.

To [ ] whom is long gone, I hope you find a manager that treats you as poorly as you have treated us. I worked harder for you then any manager in my career and I regret every ounce of it. Watching you take credit for my work was truly demoralizing.

To [ ], you should learn how to keep your mouth shut sweet heart. Bad mouthing the innocent is a negative thing, especially when you’re talking about someone who knows your disgusting secrets.

To [ ], well, I wish you had more of a back bone. You threw me to the wolves with that witch B and I learned all too much from it. I still can’t believe that after following your instructions, I ended up getting written up, wow. Thanks for the experience buddy, lesson learned.

[ ], I’m happy that you were let go in the same manner that you have handed down to my dedicated coworkers. Hearing you on the phone last year brag about how great bonuses were going to be for you fellas in upper management because all of the lay offs made me nearly vomit. I never expected to see management benefit financially from the suffering of scores of people but then again, with this company’s rooted history in the slave trade it only makes sense.

To all of the executives of this company, [ ] and such. Despite working through countless managers that practiced unethical behavior, racism, sexism, jealousy and cronyism, I have benefited tremendously by working here and I truly thank you for that. There was once a time where hard work was rewarded and acknowledged, it’s a pity that all of our positive output now falls on deaf ears and passes blind eyes. My advice for you is to place yourself closer to the pulse of this company and enjoy the effort and dedication of us “faceless little people” more. There are many great people that are being over worked and mistreated but yet are still loyal not to those who abuse them but to the greater mission of providing excellent customer support. Find them and embrace them as they will help battle the cancerous plague that is ravishing the moral of this company.

So, in parting, if I could pass on any word of advice to the lower salary recipient (“because it’s good for the company”) in India or Tampa who will soon be filling my position, it would be to cherish this experience because a job opportunity like this comes along only once in a lifetime.

Meaning: if I had to work here again in this lifetime, I would sooner kill myself.

To those who I have held a great relationship with, I will miss being your co-worker and will cherish our history together.

Please don’t bother responding as at this very moment I am most likely in my car doing 85 with the windows down.

One!

Your demands were high and your patience short, but I take great solace knowing that my work was, as stated on my annual review, “meets expectation.” That is the type of praise that sends a man home happy after a 10 hour day, smiling his way through half a bottle of meets-expectation-scotch with a meets-expectation-cigar. Thanks [ ]!

 

And then, there are some:

A video that went viral, Shifrin quits her job from a Taiwanese company that produces news videos with a video showing the reasons for her quitting: (oh well, decide for yourself if at all this is worth it, would you?)

Here are some other tips that might help you in planning on the next steps on your job search.

Farewell Thank You Messages to Colleagues, Sample Farewell Thank You With a grateful heart I share the feelings with you on this last day of my work today.

Goodbye Messages for a Colleague That’s Leaving the Company

last day wishes to colleagues

Farewell Messages for Colleagues: Colleagues, team members and bosses who are more friends rather than mere co-workers deserve a special send off. A touching message, heartfelt goodbye quotes, plethora of funny jokes, inspirational farewell speeches, and greeting cards that celebrate their achievements in the office – there are just some of the things that are the order of the day when close colleagues leave. Whether it is resignation or retirement, make sure you let your colleagues know that their departure will be a big loss to you not just on a professional level in the office but also on a personal too. Make sure that their farewell party is rife with funny banter, smiles and laughter so that they leave with nothing but memories they’ll hold close to their hearts.

 

1) I like the feeling of finding it difficult to say goodbye to someone because it only means that I have found a true friend. Farewell.

 

2) It is hard to say goodbye to a colleague who has been less of a co-worker and more of a friend. I will miss you and I am sad that the joyride of working with you has to come to an end. Farewell.

 

3) The cold meeting room walls will now feel colder without the warmth of a helpful and considerate colleague like you. Farewell.

 

4) NEVER in my life have I EVER thought that I would want to work with a colleague FOREVER – until I started working with YOU. Farewell, I will miss you.
