Dear (Co-workers, Colleagues),
In your opening paragraph, announce to your co-worker(s) that you are set to leave the company and the date on which you will be leaving. Express your sorrow at leaving, and how you have found the time you have spent with the company rewarding.
The body of your goodbye letter should briefly describe how the recipient(s) have been an inspiration to you. Describe how you have learned from those you have worked with, even enjoyed the jokes and time spent working together. Tell the recipient(s) how you feel that you are taking life- long friendships with you as you go toward a new future.
Wish your co-worker(s) a prosperous and happy future and rewarding career. If you wish, let them know that you will remain friends and stay in contact. Include your telephone number or email address so that co-workers can stay in touch with you once you have left the company.
Sign your name above the typed version. When writing a goodbye letter, you can post it on a bulletin board if writing to a group of colleagues, or deliver it to each individual. Using the guidelines above, you will find that writing a goodbye letter is not such a daunting task.
