Farewell Letters

A farewell letter is always a valuable tool to saygoodbye and show your respect and gratitude to your former employer and co-workers.

This type of letter is not formal, on the opposite, because of its friendly motif, it is casual. Use a farewell letter to let people know that you are resigning your position or moving to a new one.

Things to factor in when writing a farewell letter are:

  • Who you are going to send the letter to? make a list.
  • Include the last day you are working, so people have the chance to say good bye in person.
  • Wish them the best for the future.
  • Make it brief but nice.
  • DO NOT FORGET to include your contact info so people can keep in touch with you.

The format of a farewell letter changes when an employee that works for you is leaving and you want to letco-workers know.

Make a letter that other employees will read, letting them know that someone is leaving a position, wishing him the best and asking everybody to join you in your wishes. Include the same details listed above, but do not include the contact information of the employee: he may not want to publicly share it.

Dear Johana.

I want to take a brief moment to tell you that I am resigning my position in the company, for familial reasons. I am moving back to my home town and I would start a new job there.

The time in this company was pretty amazing, at the beginning I was afraid of meeting new people but with the time I meet you and the other guys and it was great, the time that I had expended in the company was also great, the boss was a little tight at the beginning but with the time he was also pretty good.

I want to thank you and the rest of the guys for the time that we spend, for the thing that you have learn and for each conversation in the office we had.

I hope we can keep in touch, so share my phone and e-mail: 555-321-9876 and Joha@gmail.com

Farewell my friends.

Best Regards
