What to Write in a Retirement Card for Your Boss

Everyone eventually hits retirement age and will find themselves transitioning into a slower pace in life. To celebrate this new era for your boss, here are some great examples of what to write in a retirement card for your boss that will communicate to him or her some of your biggest well wishes and happy thoughts.

All these years you may have been the boss, but now all that goes out for a toss. Retirement marks the end of your reigning thunder, because without your job title you’re no more than a mere commoner. Farewell.

Best wishes for an awesome retirement. Keep working hard, but be your own boss.

Boss… as you prepare to pack up and retire today, we confess that we enjoyed annoying you in every possible way.

Boss… retirement is a sweet vacation. Don’t set yourself targets at home too. Farewell.

Congratulations for retiring. Life has officially given you the permission to splurge, enjoy and relax.

Congratulations on your retirement! If you get bored, you know you can call and hang out with us.

Dear boss… please remember that no matter how much everyone wishes you well for your retirement, deep down inside they’re just happy that you’re leaving. Farewell.

Dear boss… retirement is life’s way of telling you that you’ve spent too much time giving orders and getting others to do things for you. Now it’s time to do something on your own.

Don’t forget to spend a little of your extra time with us. We’re so happy for you!

Enjoy your new status as a retiree! It’s the last time you’ll need to start a new job.

I am happy to see you retire at just the perfect time. Actually, any time is the perfect time to retire.

I have to be honest with you. I’m a little jealous.

I think you will love retirement. You never took day-offs from work… and there are no day-offs in retirement either. Happy retirement boss.

If you found happiness or fulfillment in the workforce, then it’s likely you’ll do the same now that even more possibilities are open to you.

In terms of profit and loss, your retirement is a loss for your colleagues and a profit for your family. Farewell.

It always hurts to lose that one best person, who leads the pack at work and gets everything done. The person who moves ahead and takes everyone else along, who builds a winning team by making everyone strong. Farewell, boss.

It’s great to see someone retire who is as deserving as you. Make sure you work just as hard at relaxing as you have in your long career.

Just as your work has been long and satisfying, we wish you a long and satisfying retirement.

Retirement is life’s greatest tease. You have more free time than a thirteen year old but your energy levels are worse than a fifty year old.

Retirement is life’s way of telling you that it is time you put your friends and family before your work. Happy retirement.

Retirement is the sweet reward for all the bitter battles fought in the boardroom. Congratulations.

Retirement is the working person’s wish come true. Here’s to finally getting your wishes granted!

Retirement marks the time when your dress code officially changes from shirts and suits to flannels and jammies. Enjoy!

The first week of retirement will feel like the first taste of freedom. The second week of retirement will feel like a vacation. The third week of retirement will feel like the beginning of lifelong captivity at home. Happy retirement boss.

This is the beginning of the rest of your life and the rest of your life. Congratulations on your retirement.

Throughout your career you have been someone’s boss. Retirement is your chance to be your own. Congratulations.

Time to relax and do whatever you want! Congratulations!

To stay balanced in life, work like you’re retired and retire like it’s your job.

Until now you may have thought that life’s biggest battles are fought in the boardroom… but now as you retire and spend more time at home, you’ll realize that they’re actually fought in the kitchen. Good luck.

We will be happy if we can be even half as efficient, half as creative and half as amazing as a team as compared to what we were when you were the boss. Farewell.

We wish your birthdays never came, we wish you never grew old. We wish that as the years flew by, you’d gotten young and bold. We wish time had gone in reverse, making you younger by the day. Boss… you’ll be missed, is what we want to say. Goodbye.

We’ll miss you. You are one of a kind and not easily replaced.

We’re glad that you are retiring, and we are looking forward to spending more time with you. Best wishes.

You are one of the hardest workers I have ever known. You deserve a great retirement, but I know you will still keep yourself busy.

You can be taken out of the workforce, but the work force can never be taken out of you. I am confident you’ll never stop working on things you love to do.

You may be given retirement because you are growing old. But it is a pity the company doesn’t realize that it is letting go of an asset more precious than gold. Happy retirement boss.

You were a good boss because more than instructions, you gave us direction and inspiration. Happy retirement.

You will remembered for the things that you did here. Thanks for your years of hard work and dedication. Congratulations on your retirement.

Your career has earned you money over the years, but now you get to cash in on all the time you’ve earned. Spend it well.

Your career’s biggest souvenirs are your colleagues’ good wishes. Happy retirement.

Your retirement is a just an illusion. Your spouse will become your new boss and your grandchildren become your full time colleagues. Happy retirement.
