Farewell Letter Colleagues, Sample & Format

Farewell Letter Colleagues


When a person is all set to leave his/her job, he/she decides to write a letter of greeting farewell to all his/her colleagues, since it is not possible to go around bidding the same to everyone personally, and also, saying goodbye to colleagues can be hard. A Farewell Letter to Colleagues is written to bid adieu to one’s colleagues and friends in a company. The employee who is leaving the job uses this letter to inform his/her colleagues that he/she will be moving to the new organization. The employee expresses his/her gratitude to his/her colleagues and friends for all their assistance during his/her working period in the group. Being connected with the colleagues of the former organization is always a good idea and may be beneficial for future purposes as well.

In a Farewell Letter to Colleagues, the writer expresses his/her good wishes for everyone in the organization. The letter should be segmented into three parts. The introductory part of the letter should begin with warmly wishing farewell to the colleagues.  The main body of the letter should include the reason for farewell, since there can be several other reasons for leaving the organization, such as pursuing further studies, familial problems, etc. It may also include certain personal memories while maintaining the professional boundaries at the same time. The letter should be concluded by wishing the best to all the colleagues in the organization and promising to be in touch always.

Subject: Wishing Farewell to All of You

Dear Colleagues,

Today would be my last day at work at Faraday Products and Services. It has been an incredible duration of nine years to work with all of you at this organization. I am grateful to be a part of the team in the Accounts Department. We rocked always!

You all will be glad to know that I shall be joining as the senior accountant at J and S Pvt. Ltd. I will remember and cherish everything that you all have done for me and each of your efforts during my term of work here; we have gone through many long nights to settle the accounts, but we were always successful! We have worked together so well, but now, resentfully, we must part. I am thankful to all of you for all your support and cooperation during my tenure here. I hope to find colleagues as cooperative as you all in the new organization as well.

Lastly, it is my kind request to all of you to kindly forgive me if I have been harsh on any of you. I wholeheartedly wish each of you the best in your future endeavors. May you all be successful always. Look me up when you are free and be in touch always.

Thanking You

Yours Sincerely,

Jeremiah O’Leary

Senior Accountant
