Sometimes we have to bid farewell to someone in our lives. Farewell is not 1) It sounds like an exciting opportunity for you, but I still can't believe you are leaving! 15) Remembering you and the impact you've made to our company. We all.

Farewell Messages: For any person, saying goodbye to a loved one is the hardest thing to do but acknowledging the fact that we have something that makes saying goodbye so hard makes it a bit easier. One should cheerish the best times spend with the loved ones and pray for their success. A person should not cry because it's all over but rather should appreciate the new beginning. Saying farewell to a co-worker who has been your support for years could be really painful but showing your love and respect towards him/her is much more important. To encourage your co-worker, or your friend you can simply write a farewell wish which is not only going to provide him a new energy but also will also boost his confidence. Do not fret if you are unaware of what to write or how to write farewell message as we are here to help you out. We have an amazing collection of messages, quotes and wishes which you can send to your loved ones and wish them good luck and farewell for the future. You can simply share these messages on twitter, facebook and whatsapp as they are absolutely free of cost. So, wish your co-workers now!
When it is the last day of your friend in office one should think of making it the most memorable. It should become the day which he/she truly remembers forever after leaving the office. Bring a smile on the face of your friends, colleagues or co-workers by sending them the most humorous messages which are full of wit. Send them the messages and shower your care and love on them.
Saying goodbye to your mentor who has guided you, supported you and also taught you becomes really difficult. It becomes an extremely heart-wrenching moment for all as it appears like a huge loss. But, one should bid farewell to a boss with great respect and feeling of gratitude. Make him feel great on the last day of the office. Send him the best farewell messages and make him feel found for everything he has done for you.
Saying goodbye to a colleague who is also your companion could be really difficult. But, at that time it becomes necessary to support and encourage your colleague as he/she is leaving the company. Send the best farewell messages to your colleagues and motivate them. Your support is really important to them.
Whatever you decide to do now and wherever life takes you, I wish you all the best on that journey. . Now that you're leaving, we can't help but be sad for the great friend Goodbye for now and good luck on your new job.”.
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.
I want to bid farewell to you all and inform you that I am leaving my position at . Tomorrow is my last day at work.

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. I think this decision is in the best interests towards fulfilling my career goals. I want to do my best in completing my existing responsibilities and then ensuring a smooth transition.
Also, I would like to thank you again, Amy, Andrew, and all others for the help and guidance during all these years of my employment, and would like to extend my best wishes to the entire group.

Please feel free to contact me even later on in case you need help with the transition of my responsibilties to another employee.
As I informed you all in the last meeting, I am moving on to a new challenging position in another company next week. My last working day is Friday, January 25th.
Today I want to take the opportunity to thank you all for being a great team to work with all these years.
It has been an amazing working with you all these last three years and I will miss your enthusiasm, perseverance, and the ‘never say die’ spirit and of course the talent that you brought to our group. I thank you for all your support throughout and hope you continue to extend your cooperation to the current leadership teams and the succeeding manager. I wish you all, my fellow partners and everyone in the larger XYZ family, all the very best.
Do not hesitate to contact me at: [email protected].
With best wishes,
Chethak from India is the fearless hero who planned his escape from the cubicle in a creative style. I guess many colleagues would remember this creative example for long. Thanks to Chethak for this contribution. (Click the image below to view larger).
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.
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:

Here are some other tips that might help you in planning on the next steps on your job search.
Goodbye messages to coworkers can often be the most difficult ones to write. After all, how does one even begin to sum up the weeks, months or years that you’ve worked together, and the myriad of emotions they’ve inspired in you over all this time, or all the memories that you’ve shared?
Saying goodbye in person is hard enough, but having to write these goodbye messages in a farewell card to coworkers can be a daunting task indeed. It’s a bit easier to write goodbye messages to coworkers that you had a good relationship with, but, what if you weren’t particularly fond of the person? Or didn’t know them nearly enough to form an opinion?
None of that seems to matter when those farewell cards start to circulate in the office and you’re expected to write flattering and thoughtful goodbye messages to coworkers that you may not even have really known. Whatever your predicament, we’ve got you covered.
Here’s a list of goodbye messages to coworkers that you can use to appropriately express your sadness, mixed emotions, or even low-key indifference as a colleague retires or leaves to greener career pastures:
P.S. Stan is our fictional colleague in these goodbye messages so be sure to change this to your actual colleague’s name before writing in a farewell card. The last thing you want to do is to screw up your colleague’s name on his last day!
Goodbye messages to coworkers in a farewell card do not need to be long. As long as you speak from the heart, anything you write in your goodbye messages will be well received.
Today the company loses one of its greatest assets and it is with true sadness You came to this office as our boss, but you leave as a friend.
Composing a goodbye or farewell email to your colleagues on your last day in the office can be a daunting task. To help, here’s a sample email that you can refer to.
Subject: Bidding Everyone Adieu
Today is my last day at work here, and I would like to thank you all for the great times that we shared. I will treasure all the sweet memories that I have of working here with you.
I have enjoyed working with you all, and I see myself as one of the few lucky employees at [insert name of company] because I got to work with such a great team of like-minded individuals. It’s hard for me to bid you all adieu because of how we worked together tirelessly to promote this company so that it would meet the present and future needs of clients and staff members.
Building a successful team means more than just finding people who can work together. It means finding a team that's committed to each other, has a deep sense of trust with one another and cares about each other. During my 10+ years as a full-time staff member here, I've worked in three different departments. Despite how tough things were, every team I had the privilege to work with was able to meet, surpass, and sustain the goals that we were tasked with.
I remember when the company's success was plummeting, I was part of the team that was commissioned by the board to find a lasting solution to the challenges the company was facing at that difficult time. Under the supervision of Mr. /Mrs. _____, we researched and drafted the [paper/project] that helped restore the company.
While this has been one of the most satisfying, rewarding, and all-around wonderful jobs I've ever had, I feel that it's time for me to explore new challenges and diversify my experience. I will definitely miss you all, and at the same time, I look forward to these new career opportunities.
At this juncture, I wish you all the very best here at [insert name of company]. Once again, thank you for the inspiration and for bringing out the best in me. To keep in touch with me from time to time, my contact information is below.
