It may so happen that you have landed a better job and have plans of resigning from your current job. Or it may be that you have lost your job and need to leave the organization. In such a case, it becomes your moral responsibility to say goodbye to your boss and co-workers.

You may be resigning from your current job on a happy or strained note. In spite of the situation, you should write a farewell message to your boss, that let him/her know you are leaving. You should send the message to your boss even before you resign. This is because you do not want your boss to hear about it through the office grapevine. You should keep in mind, whatever may be situation, you should part on a healthy note from your boss.

The next important step is writing a farewell message to a colleague. You need to let your colleagues and co-workers know that you are moving to a new job, position, or even retiring from your post. You should send the message to co-workers via email and include all your contact details if you wish to stay in touch. The following samples will prove to be useful for your use.

Dear Boss,

As you may already know, I will be leaving today, and would wish to convey my gladness in having been here and working under your diligent supervision. I am truly grateful that I have received so much help and support from you.

In particular, Amy Master from Human Resource team guided me through the training program. Her coaching style is unique and I will always remember what she taught me.

In my years having learned and watched the great team you head, I depart feeling confident of my abilities in this challenging industry. My cell phone number remains the same. Please call me any time you may need to.
