Every day offers plenty of reasons to express our thanks to those around us, and the workplace is no exception. Some appropriate reasons to write a thank you note to your boss I'm so grateful to work for a company that shows its appreciation so . Don't leave that graciousness at the workplace doorstep.

The Farewell Thank You Note

When you're leaving a company, you may want to write a farewell letter to say goodbye and thank your co-workers. It lets people know some important information.

Farewell Note DO's:

  • Do let people know when your last day is, your contact info, and maybe your reason for leaving (retirement, new position, new career).
  • Use your best judgment when deciding who should receive your goodbye letter. Maybe just your boss, maybe your immediate group, maybe the whole company-- but only if it's a small one.
  • Let people know who to direct questions to in your absence.

Farewell Note DON'Ts:

  • Don't burn bridges.  This is not a chance to tell someone off. 
  • Don't be mushy or wax philosophical on life.  Keep it professional; say farewell, thank you, and best of luck.
  • Don't brag about your new position.

Greetings,

I wanted to let everyone know that Candace Cane will be moving on from the company this Friday.

Her strong work ethic, attention to detail, and persistence will be sorely missed.

Please all join me in thanking Candy for her invaluable efforts these past 2 years and wish her the best of luck in her future endeavors.

How to Write a Thank-You Letter to Your Ex-boss After Leaving Your Job

sample thank you letter to boss after leaving company

Sample resignation letter

Ready to leave your job? Learn how to write a resignation letter that keeps you in good standing with your employer. This sample letter of resignation can help you find the right words.

A resignation letter can smooth any wrinkles in your exit.

Great news! You found a new job on Monster and are super-thrilled—way to go! There's one order of business you need to take care of before you start mentally decorating your new desk. You need to write a resignation letter telling your current boss that you're leaving.

Whether or not you’re leaving on good terms, it’s proper protocol to submit a letter of resignation. Keep your cool. You might be tempted to quickly write a simple resignation letter and move on, but this formal good-bye is worth further consideration.

While the purpose of the resignation letter is to inform your employer that you’re quitting, you can use it as an opportunity to build relationships and leave on a positive note (no pun intended). 

What is a resignation?

A resignation is the act of leaving your job. A resignation letter expresses your intention to leave the company you currently work for.

Should you write a resignation letter?

You should write a resignation letter because it's the professional thing to do, whether you work at a hospital or a coffee shop. A resignation letter officially gives notice to your boss that you're leaving the job and someone else will need to be hired to replace you and take on your responsibilities. 

What is a two weeks' notice letter?

A two weeks' notice letter is essentially the same thing as a resignation letter. (It's more professional-sounding than "quit letter" and "job leaving letter," don't you think?) This letter announces your intent to depart from the company and says you will remain in your position for another two weeks before leaving. Two weeks is the standard amount of time from when you announce you're leaving to your last day at your job.

What to write in a resignation letter?

A resignation letter should include the following:

  • a statement of intent that you will be leaving your job
  • the name of your official staff position
  • the date of your last day on the job
  • gratitude to your employer for hiring you
  • a highlight of your time there (optional)
  • an offer to train your replacement
  • well wishes for the future of the company
  • your contact info

[Date]

Ms. Joyce Michaels
CEO
ABC Company
15 Main St.
Sometown, MA 55555

Dear Joyce,

Please accept this letter as notice of my resignation from my position as staff accountant. My last day of employment will be [date].

I received an offer to serve as senior accountant of a Fortune 500 company, and after careful consideration, I realize that this opportunity is too exciting for me to decline.

It has been a pleasure working with you and your team over the last three years. One of the highlights of my career was collaborating with you to automate ABC Company’s accounting, financial and balance systems and setting up your accounting infrastructure. Your company is poised for continued growth and I wish you much success with your upcoming acquisition of XYZ Company.

I would like to help with the transition of my accounting duties so that systems continue to function smoothly after my departure. I am available to help recruit and train my replacement, and I will make certain that all reporting and records are updated before my last day of work.

Joyce, thank you again for the opportunity to work for ABC Company. I wish you and your staff all the best and I look forward to staying in touch with you. You can email me anytime at [email protected] or call me at 555-555-5555.

Sincerely,

 

Roberta Jones

Further things to consider when writing resignation letters to colleagues

Resignation Letters

Resignation letters are letters written to employers to announce the intent to leave a currently held position. While the main objective of a resignation letter is to inform your employer that you are leaving, you can use it to maintain a positive relationship with the recipient by leaving with a positive final impression. Though you may feel as if this is a great opportunity to say how much you hated the company, it's always in your best interest to be polite so that your professional future remains secure. A resignation letter should be sent well in advance or as required by the contract to give the recipient enough time to fill your position.

Resignation letters are formal letters, and therefore, the writing tone must be professional. State your intention to resign clearly. If appropriate, give your reasons for the same. Thank the recipient for the experience and state how this position has positively influenced your profession. While at it, resist the temptation to make negative comments unless you want the recipient to remember you as an ungrateful employee. Wrap it up with a kind note and mention that you are willing to offer any assistance needed during the transition.

Letters to Colleagues

Letters to colleagues are, simply, letters written to coworkers. These letters are written in a business or professional setting for different purposes. Maybe you want to thank a coworker for doing you a favor - write a thank-you letter. You want to congratulate him/her for a promotion - write a congratulation letter. Perhaps you want to apologize for doing something wrong - write an apology letter, or may be you have found a new job, and it's time to say goodbye - write a farewell letter. Although some colleagues may find writing letters a tedious process, it is a great way to maintain a strong working relationship.

Most letters to colleagues are informal. You really don't need to use all that formal jargon to people you know pretty well ? do you? Begin your letter with a warm and friendly salutation and the proper name of the recipient. Clearly state the purpose of your letter. Be specific and know exactly what you are talking about. Use clear language which the recipient can easily understand. Maintain a friendly and pleasant tone. Close the letter positively and with a note of anticipation that the recipient will take the necessary action.
