How to Write a Personalized Retirement Message

Want to write a personalized message that will make them smile and feel good about themselves? It's easier than it sounds. Just mix one or more of these four ingredients...

1. Accomplishment

Acknowledge the person's contribution and hard work over their career, thanking them for their commitment and the work that they have done, and to celebrate how much they have accomplished over their career. E.g.

"Thanks for all your hard work these years, fielding all the phone calls and making sure our office runs like clockwork. I don't know what we're going to do without you!"

2. What you'll miss about them

Tell them what you'll miss about them, from their encouragement or guidance on projects, to their conversation at coffee time. Tell them how it's been a pleasure to work with them, and thank them for all they have done. E.g.

"I'm going to miss having you around - your good mood was so contagious. Also, don't think we'll ever find someone who bakes as nice birthday cakes as you!"

3. Things they won't miss

Remind them all the things about work that they might NOT miss in retirement, like stressful end-of-year deadlines, bad coffee, or very long Monday morning staff meetings! E.g.

"Congratulations on your final escape from our Monday morning staff meetings!"

4. What they've got to look forward to

Mention things the person can look forward to in their retirement, from more time to spend on their hobbies to more time with their family, or time to go travelling, read a good book, etc. And finally, don't forget to wish them a long, happy, healthy retirement! E.g.

"We hope you have a long and happy retirement - enjoy all your travel and time with the grandkids!"

50+ Retirement Wishes

sentiments for retirement wishes

Retirement is something everyone must experience in life someday, retirements are worth celebrating same way we celebrate other events. Most times retirements come with double feeling, first there is this bad feeling that you’re about to leave the job you have been doing for long and also the good feeling that at least you have to rest from the day to day struggles. One of the things that retirees will always cherish are the good will messages from family and friends.

You’ll agree with me that even with great intentions and all the efforts in the world, retirement messages can sometimes be difficult to write for a co-worker. If you have to remain in the workplace yourself and someone you were working with is now moving on, you might realise that sometimes there’s this feeling of envy that occurs when someone retires. Don’t let that ugly feeling of envy prevent you from wishing a retiree a happy retirement. Keep in mind all the time they invested at work to achieve this goal. It’s now time for them to move on, one day, it’ll be your time. The question now is “How do you wish your co-worker a wonderful retirement and let him or her know how much they will be missed”?

In this article, We have brought together a collection of best retirement messages to send to someone you know.
