101 Best Employer Farewell Message to Employee

Whether your employee is leaving the company for retirement, to another job position elsewhere, or for other reasons, here is a look at some great employer farewell message to employees that can be given in a card, in an email, or even to start off a letter.

#1 Just like a blue whale migrating across the world, it’s your time to move on. I know you will only continue to learn and grow on your journey. I hope you migrate back to us again one day. Farewell and best of luck.

#2 Whenever an employee like you leaves, I feel like a parent who just sent their kid off to college. Equal parts sad and proud. While we may miss you, I know that you’ll go on to do great things and accomplish any goal you set out to conquer. Even though you don’t need it, best of luck!

#3 Like a Formula One driver, your career path will take unexpected twists and turns. But after seeing your work here, I know you are poised to adapt. I wish you luck in the challenges you will encounter in your race ahead!

#4 You have set the bar high for everyone else. All the other employees have tried to follow your lead. Whether you realize it or not, you inspire those around you. We are all going to suffer by not having you around anymore, but you have earned the right to thrive in a new environment. Farewell and good luck!

#5 Not everyone makes a lasting mark in their workplace. You have. A hole will be left in the team, and I doubt we will find someone as talented as you to fill it. But I know you are moving on to do more incredible work. Good luck.

#6 Few people are as reliable, hard-working, and creative as you are. Your absence will be hard to overcome, but I know it’s the best decision for you. Just know that you will be missed here.

#7 I don’t say this to very many people, but you have truly been a pillar of this team. It is going to be very challenging to find someone to fill your role. But I’m excited for your road ahead. If you ever need help along the way, I’ll be here to support you. Farewell, and please keep in touch.

#8 Much like the birds that fly south for the winter, it’s time for you to move on. I wish you nothing but success and hope that, like those birds, you return to us again in the future. Best of luck in your endeavors.

#9 This is a tough goodbye, but I know how driven you are and it’s time for your next challenge. It was a pleasure having you work here, and I hope you reach your future aspirations. If you ever need any guidance along the way, please keep me in mind. I’ll always be happy to help. Farewell for now.

#10 You’ve been nothing but diligent, dedicated, and dependable. It’s going to take a while for us to adapt to you leaving us, as your influence on the team was immense. As you move onto the next stage of your career, remember that you can achieve any goal you set in for yourself. Best of luck.

#11 I try to think of our team as a bundle of sticks. Alone we can easily be snapped, but together we are strong. Thank you for being an important part of this team. I started to feel a bit blue about you leaving, but I am actually happy for you because I know there is incredible greatness in your future. Go kick a** and take no prisoners.

#12 You are a boss’s dream employee. I always knew you would complete your work to the highest standard with minimal supervision. I’m not going to miss you making me look good. Your new manager is lucky. I know you will be their all-star employee. Farewell.

#13 I was hoping the day I had to say goodbye was not going to come. You’ve been working with us for so long that you’ve become an institution. We will never be able to fill your shoes. I wish you only the best in the future. Goodbye and best of luck.

#14 Your constant professionalism and can-do attitude will be sorely missed. If every employee was like you, I would be out of a job. The next part of your career is going to have new obstacles for you to overcome. I’m positive you’ll succeed. We’ll miss you. Goodbye.

#15 Your drive and passion are like a hurricane. They are so powerful they too can be seen from space. You’ve been an integral part of our success, and it’s hard to see it come to an end. But I know you have greatness in your future. Farewell and good luck on the journey!

#16 Just like in a relay race, you sometimes have to leave others behind in order to advance. We are more than happy to have passed you the baton, but now it’s time for you to run ahead to your next chapter. I hope you look back on your time with us as positively as we do. Best of luck with your future goals.

#17 Through your ingenuity and passion, you have changed the way we do work. We are forever in your debt. It’s now time for you to leave your mark on another company. The team is going to miss seeing you every day. Goodbye and best wishes.

#18 The impact you’ve had on this company cannot be understated. You have made all of our jobs easier, and it was a great experience to work with you. Your new colleagues are going to be in for a treat. Good luck!

#19 I have watched you blossom from a new hire into an absolute workhorse. Your new job will be an excellent opportunity to continue your professional growth. Somebody with your drive is guaranteed to find prosperity. I want to wish you all the best in your new opportunity.

#20 Few people can elevate those around them to reach their potential. You are one of those people. You have brought our team to new heights, and I will always be thankful for the work you’ve done. Now it is time to raise up another team. I’m going to miss working with you. Goodbye and best of luck. You’re going to do great.

#21 Success seems to follow you around like a lost puppy. No matter what you do or where you decide to go, you find a way to achieve everything you set out to do and more. My biggest regret is that I can’t keep you here for longer. Farewell and best of luck in all your ventures.
