Farewell Messages to Say Goodbye

A farewell is not just about saying goodbye to your loved ones. Rather, it is about encouraging and giving your best wishes to someone on his/her new journey. We bring to you the best and unique farewell messages that you can share with your family, friends and colleagues.

I will always remember the good times we spend together.
Those precious moments were the best times of my life.
Farewell my friend;
hope to see you soon.

This is such an great opportunity for you, but I still can’t believe you’re leaving. Please keep in touch!

I’ll miss you and think of you. Thank you for the good times and sweet memories that we shared together.

I hate the feeling when you have to say goodbye to someone you want to spend every minute with.

Though miles may lie between us, we are never far apart,
for friendship doesn't count miles, it's measured by the heart.

Saying goodbye is the most painful way of solving a problem.

May your journey be a pleasant one. Farewell and hope to see you soon.

Goodbye my friend
I hope our path will cross again.

Today as we part I am forced to say goodbye. But, I know, that we would meet again very soon.

You are not only a great teacher but also a great human being. There are so many things that we have learned from you! you deserve the best farewell!

Goodbye without reasons is the most painful one.
Love without reason is the most beautiful one.

Saying goodbye to a true friend is really tough.
But I bid you goodbye with the hope that we would meet again one day.

Your decision-making skills are an asset that have always inspired me to be like you.
I appreciate all your words of encouragement and everything I have learned from you.
Farewell, sir!

You’ve been an inspiration to all of us, and we've enjoyed working with you.
We wish you success wherever you go.
Farewell, boss!

Good friends never say goodbye
They simply say "See you soon"

Goodbyes are never easy
Pictures never carry your warmth
memories will always pierce the heart
No words can say it all.
I'll Miss you.

Just a note to say..
As you move into a new venture...
May luck and success always be with you!

You decided to move to greener pastures, but your departure will leave our grounds barren and dry.
Farewell

Monthly targets and performance appraisals will come and go,
but the memories of working with a colleague like you will stay in my heart forever.

Because we are in the office
I may not let tears out of my eyes
But I want you to know that
My heart will silently weep and cry.
Farewell & Goodbye

It's difficult to bid you farewell
As you leave though my mind says you have a brighter future in store & a better life ahead...
the heart can never outgrow,
the pleasant experience of having you near,
Wherever you may go, here's wishing you all the best.

Fell very lucky to know someone who is so hard for me to say goodbye.

Some people come into our lives and quickly go.
Others stay awhile, make footprints on our hearts and we are never, ever the same.

It may be hard to say goodbye but the good with it is a promise of something better.

Wishing you much joy & happiness as you begin a new chapter in your life.

You were the best colleague that I have ever worked with.

Thanks for all those times when you helped me in the tasks I wasn't able to do on time.
It will be difficult to fill the void created by your absence.
I am really going to miss you.
Best of luck!

But here I was lucky.
Hope we retain this friendship even after you have moved on.

This goodbye might be painful
but it is not the end.
My heart knows, that we will meet again...

Morning classes, bunking college, midnight studies, late night drives, we have seen a wonderful time together.
But now it's time to part. But its not the final goodbye, see you soon

The tiring office hours seemed much more relaxed when you were around.
You will be missed with each passing day.

You have always let your Work speak for you. Let your honesty answer all criticism.
We know you are leaving a very proud man!

We will miss you!

I had come to rely on your "random wisdom".
Would miss that terribly.
Do well!

Bitter for the present separation and sweet for the future longing.
Hope this farewell is for a short period.

As you embark upon a new path, let us wish you many moments of happiness success and achievements.
May you live your dreams in each moment.

The coffee breaks, the canteen chats, office gossips and long hours schedule,

Good bye and take care.

As you choose a new path to walk, may you discover new treasures of life to unlock.
Wait a while and count my wishes, I am sending you lots of good bye kisses.

The truest feelings for someone are known when you are bidding adieu to them.

Now and always I will love you, but it's time that we part and say goodbye.

Even when you are saying goodbye make a promise to say hello again.

Gone with the wind yet so close to my heart.
Maybe we have bid goodbye but it is only a new start.

Sometimes you realize how important people are in your life when you bid goodbye to them.

Parting at the end of a journey isn't the most important part.
It's the journey that fills the hearts.

If you dare to say goodbye
life will always give you a new hello.

It is sometimes difficult to let go of but it is a wonderful feeling to know you are leaving us for a better future.
May you excel in every field of your life.

I will always cherish the happy times I have spent with you.
Whenever I need to smile I know I can look back to them.
Hoping to see you soon. Good Bye!

My good bye should not make you sad as you are going to pursue something better.
Hope God bestows you with success as you take a new path.

We wish you lots of success on your way.
Sadly, we will not go this way together.

When everything is said and done it is best to bid farewell to each other.

Your tear-stained face is the most painful memory of the time we parted.

As it is your last day with us, we'd like to thank you for being a great manager, mentor and guide.
May you shine always.

Wishing you all the success for your upcoming future.
Good bye and good luck.

May this goodbye only be momentary.
Hope to meet you again. May the coming days make you a better person personally and professionally.

Your resignation is the biggest loss that our company has suffered this fiscal.
We all bid farewell to the employee who was a profit-driving machine.

A goodbye is most painful when you can't explain it in words...

You didn't let any of your team members fall behind. Cheers!

One of the most difficult words to say is 'goodbye'.

You were an asset and we were all set with you :) Enjoy!

I know you can only do wondrous things and make friends at workplace.
Will miss you.

I want to hunt down the head hunter who hunted you and tell him that he has managed the best ever hunt.
Farewell.

It will be difficult to find a friend like you.
But let not that hold me from wishing you all the success for the future.

Though it's the time to part I want you to know that you have always been special to me for all the great moments we have shared together.

You will be leaving us but your teachings, morals, ethics and advice will always stay with us. Thanks for being such an inspirational co-worker.

You are leaving behind a legacy that will show young ones the right path to take in the future.

Hope this farewell gives us another opportunity to meet in the future.

The thought of you going away makes me think about all the times when I could have said how much I love you, but I didn't

We wish this farewell is temporary and takes you a step closer to a new beginning

Be in touch. Your touch is spiritual.

Dear friends, we studied together all these years and shared our feelings and emotions in this institution.
Today, we move on to different parts of the world.
Though, physically we depart, we are there in each others heart.
Thank you friends..

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.

9) I know that you are going to get an awesome salary in your new job but there is no guarantee that you will get awesome colleagues like us too. Do you still want to go? Farewell.

 

10) Having you as a partner at work was one of the best professional experiences in my career. Farewell.

11) Your resignation is a cruel reminder that all good things in life must come to an end. You may have stopped being a colleague, but you’ll always remain my friend. Farewell.

 

12) Now that you are leaving, miscellaneous expenses of the company will decrease, productivity will increase, deadlines will be met and efficiency will spike. On a serious note, the exact opposite will happen. Farewell.

 

13) I will now have to make an addition to the family pictures on my office desk – YOU, because you have always been more like family and less like a co-worker. Farewell.

 

14) You were my best critic, honest friend, reliable teammate and dependable colleague. Farewell and keep in touch.

17) Farewell, to the man whose word we trusted more than operating procedures, checklists and manuals. Your knowledge and experience was always beyond par.

20) Your resignation is the biggest loss that our company has suffered this fiscal. We all wish farewell to the employee who was a profit driving machine and a friend so special.

21) As a colleague, you are a shield that protects us from the boss’ rants and a weapon that helps us in our war with monthly targets. Farewell.

 

22) Without a fun-loving co-worker like you, our after work drinks will turn sober, quiet and slightly more sophisticated. Farewell buddy, we will miss you.

 

23) Coming to work every day and not seeing your chirpy face will be a painful anguish. But the fun memories we’ve shared at work will never diminish. Farewell.

 

24) I know that quitting this job has been one of the BEST decisions of your life but just so you know, it will have the WORST impact on your colleagues. While you are set to GAIN a better position, we are set to LOSE a terrific comrade. Farewell.

 

25) On the outside, I may be smiling while I wish you farewell. But on the inside, I am desperately praying that you will quit your new job and come back to work with us again. Farewell.

33) Instead of saying farewell to you, I wish I could say fare-bad so that you come back and continue working with us. But I won’t… because I always wish the best for you. Farewell.

 

34) If I knew that you would turn out to be such an extraordinary employee, I would have asked you to sign a 10 year contract so that you would never leave me. Farewell.

 

35) We have planned a grand department party next week which you won’t be able to attend because it seems that life has grander plans for you. Farewell and we will miss you.

50 Sincere Goodbye Messages to Write in a Farewell Card

wishes for colleague leaving company

“Congratulations on your new job, we wish you all the best,” You will likely have to utter these words more than once, and this can also be tough to say to an employee who is leaving your organization.  It’s never easy watching someone go, especially long-time employees that have commanded much respect and admiration during the course of their time at your company. Employees resign and move on for many different reasons. Specific long-time employees may be heading for retirement. Or perhaps their husband, wife, or partner has accepted a position in a different city and they must go with them. Some employees are faced with resigning to deal with the illness of a loved one, whether a sick parent or sick partner. Certain employee resignations are due to their own illnesses. While other employee resignations come because they are unhappy with the current state of their career. And then there are employees who simply know it is just time to move onto the next stage of their life – whatever that may be. In any case, you need to be prepared for the proper ways to handle employee resignations and the etiquette behind extending them goodbye wishes, wherever they are headed.

Congratulations on your new job

One of the most common reasons an employee will leave is to take a higher career path. And if you have a good relationship with them, no matter how much you are disappointed that they are leaving, a “congratulations on your new job” is in order. While you may wonder what you could have done to keep them there, don’t, the time has passed, don’t try to renegotiate if they have already accepted the new position because in their mind they have already moved on. What you can do is show them how much they were appreciated.

After you and your employee have documented their resignation with a signed and dated resignation letter, agree upon how you will announce it to the rest of the team. A companywide email or words of congrats at your next office meeting are two good ways to let the rest of the team know. See if the employee who is leaving wants to include personal contact information in an email so others can keep in touch. You may also want to decide if the name of the new company they will be joining will be included. If this is an employee you trust and value you will likely be delighted to have them wrap up loose ends, upon providing their two weeks’ notice. Maybe you will not require the full two weeks, but this time allows them to organize their work into a concise package for their replacement. The time allows you to either locate a proper replacement and train that replacement or for the employee to help train someone internally, it additionally gives you the opportunity to plan a proper ‘congratulations on your new job’ party. First off, pick out the perfect congratulations card and have the entire office sign it. You can customize your congratulations card with personalized text and even include photographs of you and your employees. You can choose to include your own verse in the congratulations card or pick from congratulations card verses that are expertly crafted. Here are some suggestions:

  1. Congratulations on your new job. Wishing you all the best.
  2. Congratulations on a job well done.
  3. Warmest congratulations to you, and best wishes for the future.
  4. You deserve nothing but the best.
  5. We will remember you with warm thoughts and memories. Best wishes to you in the future!
  6. We wish you the best of luck in all your future endeavors.
  7. Your years of service to this organization are much appreciated. Congratulations on your new job, they are lucky to have you.
  8. Your career takes you down many different paths. We are all thankful that for a time that path was ours. Congratulations on your new job.
  9. To your new and exciting career path – congratulations!
  10. Any company would be lucky to have you. We sure were. To your new position – may it bring you all the prosperity and happiness that you deserve.

A ‘congratulations on your new job’ party can be organized at the office or an outside venue. You can send another companywide email to notify the guests or create personalized congratulations party invitations. While an event outside the office can sometimes be nice, a catered lunch during the workday and a few kind words can also be a good way for you and your employees to bid farewell. You may even want to give a gift like a personalized plaque, a bottle of wine, an engraved pen, a gift basket filled with candy, snacks, or coffee products, or even something a bit more personal if you are in-tune with what they like.

Congratulations on your retirement

Another common reason a long-time employee will leave your organization is retirement. You can follow a very similar format for those leaving for this reason. A retirement card, a companywide announcement, and a retirement party with corresponding retirement invitations are all classy ways to celebrate an employee’s departure. Retirement gifts are also nice, along with an included message of appreciation. Here are some retirement card messages you can try:

  1. Your years of dedication have improved our company in so many ways. You will be greatly missed. Enjoy this exciting new chapter in your life. Congratulations on your retirement!
  2. We wish you all the best for your retirement.
  3. You have brought many great years to this company. Enjoy your retirement.
  4. To the golden years! Congrats on your retirement.
  5. Take the time now to enjoy some of life’s most special gifts. (You can even list some of these ‘special gifts’ like their wife or husband, children, and grandchildren, their hobbies, dreams, and aspirations.)

Even the ‘congratulations on your new job’ verses from above can be interchanged with retirement card verbiage.

Congratulations on your new baby

A new baby may be another reason an employee is resigning. For a jovial time like this, you can follow many of the same practices above; using baby congratulations cards, a companywide announcement, and even hosting an office baby shower. You can send out invitations, bring gifts for the upcoming child, have the in or out-of-office event catered, and enjoy the celebration with friendly coworkers. If you are including a card, here are some suggested verses:

  1. Congrats on the new baby!

Sympathetic Farewells

If someone is facing hard times with a family situation or is in some way affected by a long-term illness, this will require a bit more finesse. A sympathy card or ‘get well’ card (depending on the situation) may be appropriate. Your employee may want to keep this situation private, so consult with them before telling other coworkers and see how they would like to handle it. A party will likely not be appropriate in this situation, but a low-key luncheon may be okay. If you are providing a sympathy card or ‘get well’ card here are some suggested verses:

  1. In this tough time, we understand why you must go, but know that we are here for you.
  2. We wish you brighter days ahead. You will always be in our thoughts.
  3. We appreciate your time with us and are sorry for your recent troubles. Let us know if you need anything.
  4. As you head away from here, know that the sun shines upon the horizon.
  5. We value all that you have done for our company. Let us know if there is anything we can do. If you decide to return, know that there is always an open spot waiting for you.
