Bored Panda has collected the most creative good-bye cakes and work memes ever. Jake Is Leaving For A New Job, We Tried To Get Creative With The Cake.

It can be tricky knowing exactly what to write in a leaving card.

All too often there are the attempts to be funny that are just plain rude or far too many offerings of ‘all the best [insert name here]’ or ‘best wishes’.

Sometimes writing a quote or poem can be a unique touch, here are several ideas that might work well or help inspire your own personal message.

Four funny comments that aren’t too awkwardly insulting

1) It’s sad to see you go, but you did have the best desk and I’ll look after it well

2) I’ve worked with many, many people in my career and I can honestly say that you’ve been one of them

3) This is not goodbye.  I will still be watching you outside office hours.

4) Don’t worry – I won’t tell anyone it was you

Six thoughtful messages to put in a card

1) Sorry you’re leaving, may your future be bright and your life full of good things

2) I’ve learned a lot working with you these past years. I know you’ll be successful in your new position. Thank you and farewell

3) I’m seriously going to miss you here. Best of luck in your new endeavor. See you soon

4) I’ve really enjoyed working with you. Good luck at your new job.

5) Wishing you the best in this next phase of your career. Congratulations, and best of luck

6) You can definitely look forward to new opportunities on the path ahead.

11 quotes to write in a leaving card

1) Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do – Pele

2) A dream doesn’t become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work – Colin Powell

3) That’s been one of my mantras – focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains – Steve Jobs

4) Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work – Thomas A. Edison

5) Let the beauty of what you love be what you do – Rumi

6) Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life – Confucius

7) We are all born ignorant, but one must work hard to remain stupid – Benjamin Franklin

8) Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work – Aristotle

9) I know of no single formula for success. But over the years I have observed that some attributes of leadership are universal and are often about finding ways of encouraging people to combine their efforts, their talents, their insights, their enthusiasm and their inspiration to work together – Queen Elizabeth II

10) All life demands struggle. Those who have everything given to them become lazy, selfish, and insensitive to the real values of life. The very striving and hard work that we so constantly try to avoid is the major building block in the person we are today – Pope Paul VI

11) Thinking is the hardest work there is, which is probably the reason why so few engage in it – Henry Ford

Three poems that work

1) May the road rise up to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the sun shine warm upon your face
May the rain fall soft upon your field
And until we meet again
May God hold you in the palm of his hand

2) A (colleague/co-worker) yes..but also a friend
I’ll miss you very much
My email address is [insert]
Please, please let’s keep in touch

3) You leave, oh well, I’ll say farewell
No matter where you are, Au Revoir
‘Til we meet again, Auf Wiedersehn

100 Farewell Message to Colleagues After Resignation

best wishes employee leaving company

What Is Retirement—Really?

Retirement is the point in time when an employee chooses to leave his or her employment permanently. Retirement generally coincides with the employee's eligibility to collect retirement resources such as Social Security, a company pension, or distributions from a 401(k) or another retirement plan.

Eligibility for public and private retirement resources varies from country to country as does the retirement age.

An employee may choose retirement for reasons other than the wish to stop working. Employees may suffer ill health or debilitating physical problems that require retirement. Family problems and responsibilities may require retirement.

An employer may require employees to take early retirement in order to cut costs and preserve the business. Whatever the reason, retirement from employment marks the start of the next chapter of an employee's life.

Employees choose diverse methods of retirement. They may leave employment completely or start a second career or part-time work. They may semi-retire or pursue phased retirement during which they gradually decrease the number of hours worked. Some employees retire and then return to work for their same employer in a part-time, temporary, or consulting role.

Fortunately for retiring employees, many options exist to meet their financial, emotional, and social needs in retirement. With sufficient financial resources, the employee may decide to pursue interests other than work and career in retirement.

What Happens When a Coworker Retires?

When a coworker retires, coworkers generally sign the retirement card, participate in the scheduled festivities, and send personal greetings and gifts to honor the retirement occasion. Traditionally, when the momentous occasion of an employee retirement occurs, it is marked as a life passage into the next chapter for the employee.

The employer and the employee's colleagues use the retirement event as one last opportunity to express care and appreciation for a valued coworker. As a consequence, employers and coworkers, who know not what the future brings, want to wish the retiring employee a happy retirement. This is greatly appreciated by the employee who has decided to retire.

But, the employer and coworkers are often more hesitant about how to deliver their retirement wishes effectively and successfully. They frequently use standard gifts that will remind the employee of their workplace in the coming years. Engraved watches, plaques, and desk clocks are examples of a reminder retirement gift.

Retirement Wishes

Here are sample retirement wishes that you can customize for your own use when you have the opportunity to wish a treasured colleague all of the best in retirement. These retirement words wish the coworker the very best thoughts for the future. 

Read through these sample retirement words and wishes to find sentiments that echo your own feelings about a coworker.

  • We're really going to miss you! Hope you'll enjoy every minute of your retirement. Best wishes!
  • I hope you have a wonderful retirement! You will be missed, but never forgotten. You've done so much for all of us.
  • Best wishes for a very happy retirement. Thank you for everything you've done for me directly and indirectly; it's much appreciated and I shall miss working with you. And, of course, if you decide retirement means you've time to follow some artistic dreams, go for them...
  • Your guidance and encouragement have helped me and so many other coworkers thrive in a very competitive environment, and we've been so fortunate to have your expertise to rely on. You'll be missed, but I know your retirement is the right thing at this time. May the next phase of your life bring you all that you seek and more.
  • Recently I wished you congratulations on your retirement. But, I also want you to know what a blessing it's been to work with you over these past few years, and how much I will miss you. Then you responded to my note, and wouldn't you know it, your uplifting words encouraged me more than you could imagine. That's the special kind of person you are! 
  • You helped me so much and your thoughts were always well thought out and to the point. I truly appreciate everything you did for me over the years. You will be missed. I hope that you have something wonderful planned!
  • We'll miss you. But, the time is right for you. I sincerely hope that retirement is wonderful and I wish you lots of joyous time with your family.
  • Just wanted to say that I found so many of your ideas inspiring. It's hard to imagine our workplace without you! I hope retirement brings you the chance to do whatever it is that you always wanted to do but didn't get to. All the best!
  • To say you will be missed seems like such an understatement. You are one of those rare people who instantly became a friend instead of "just" a coworker. There are no words to truly reflect how much we will miss working with you. Not to worry, though, I'll stalk you on FaceBook. Now, get out there and show the world just how much fun you can make possible in retirement.
  • You have made such a difference with your constant optimism, enthusiasm and willingness to answer questions, no matter how stupid. Somehow, you were able to make what seemed complicated into something we could all be excited about and get behind. I know we'll all really miss you. Thank you for everything you've done and please enjoy yourself!
  • It has been a joy to work with someone so passionate, calm and professional all at the same time. While I've only had the chance to work with you briefly, it's clear that your dedication to our customers has made a huge positive impact on our company. I hope retirement brings you wonderful things. You will be greatly missed.
  • You have been so wonderful to work with—so many brilliant and creative ideas and suggestions that I've lost track - and you will be sorely missed. It has been an honor and a privilege to work with you. You're also a wonderful friend and I appreciate your friendship and caring more than I can say. Our friendship, which is near and dear to my heart, will continue, I know.
  • Working with you was such a pleasure. I always appreciated your thoughtful, steady approach to solving any problem large or small. You proved that it doesn't take a loud voice to accomplish tremendous things. Best of luck, and enjoy your retirement!
  • It was great working with you—your work truly made a lasting impact, and one that has changed the company for the better in so many ways. I always appreciated how you were readily available to lend an ear and help solve any problem. We will miss you very much, but I wish you the best in retirement! Thanks for everything!
  • I just want to say, "Thank You." You always listened, you always had something constructive to say, and you always offered support and encouragement with an unflagging spirit. I've learned so much from you, and I will miss working with you. Keep in touch, please. Now go... go on, get the skis out, find the canoe, get started on the "to be read" pile. Enjoy! You deserve it.
  • Working with you has been an immense pleasure for the past couple of years. Your graciousness about the people with whom you work, your delight in and your acknowledgment of their successes, and your ability to make them the heroes, has always impressed me. Your work brought a huge, new capacity to my work that is helping me to live out my own personal and professional mission. And, my audience benefits from your contributions every day. On a personal level, I have enjoyed our friendship and will delight in continuing it into your retirement, even when we no longer work together regularly.
  • While your lovely presence will be missed in the office, the great work you did here ensures that you will not be forgotten anytime soon. What you achieved at this company made quite an impact, and that’s not so easy to do these days. Thank you for being a tireless professional, a helpful coworker, and a good friend. Now go and relax!
