Retiring Boss Farewell Letter

[Mention sender name]


Dear (recipient name)

Boss, we have something to tell you since you are retiring now. On this day we want to take the opportunity to express our gratitude for your endless support and sacrifices. All these words are understated expressions.

You are worth more than these to us.  We are sad that you are going to leave us but at the same time, we are happy about your achievement in life. Retirement is the ultimate reward for our hard work or more like winning the battles we fight in the boardroom. Retirement is equal to freedom.

We were lucky to have a seasoned mindset that showed us the right path to success. You were more of a mentor and guide to us than a boss. You have always praised us to think and be innovative and you have inspired us to think always out of the box.

You are a great mentor, you made such an influence on many of us with your hard work and dedication.

Lastly, we all will miss you boss. You are one of a kind. 

Many congratulations on your retirement to the perfect boss.

Heartfelt Goodbye Letter to Boss


Respected sir/ma’am

It breaks my heart every time I think about you not being my boss. As I always used to say and I will say this forever, you are the best boss someone could ever have. Getting a boss like you is like achieving something great in life.

I still remember the first time when I entered the office and I was late, instead of scolding me you said that it is okay to be late but it should never become a habit. You were the coolest thing I ever had. From training me so well to giving me a promotion to the [mention a post] level now it’s time to say goodbye to you. The way you handled things around here was fabulous.

I personally don’t think anyone else can ever handle the office as you did. You were more like a leader than a boss. You understood every employee from their point of view and always gave them a chance to prove their worth.

When I got the news that you will be leaving this company, the first thing that came into my mind was with whom will I share all my problems, happiness and discuss what is going on in our lives, like who will motivate me every time I lose motivation in myself. You are the one who taught me so many valuable lessons and without you, I wouldn’t have been here where I am standing today. I feel so blessed under your guidance and motivation. 

I never thought of working under someone who is not you. It is so heartbreaking to say goodbye to you, but don’t ever think that just because you are leaving the company doesn’t mean that your friendship also ends here. You were the best and you will always remain the best boss. Please keep supporting me like you always do and try to keep in touch. I will miss you a lot sir/ma’am. And best of luck for your future.

Yours truly,

[Sender’s name]

Emotional Goodbye Letter to Boss


Respected sir/ma’am,

It has been such an honor working with you for this company under your guidance and support. It won’t be easy for me to work under someone else who is not you. Every company needs a boss like you but only a few get the chance to have one just like you.

To be honest it is very rare to find a boss like you who doesn’t only support all of the clients but also respects them equally. You never compared any employee with other employees and that is really great. Many of my friends say that their boss doesn’t appreciate everyone’s hard work, and only talks to the employees when he needs something in return. I feel so blessed when I remember that my boss is totally different from all the other bosses.

You are the one who made me realize my worth and taught me that hard work always pays off. You were like the glue of this office that united all of us together. You are friendly when needed and at the same time, you are strict according to the situation. I must admit that the company that you are joining now is so lucky to have you as one of their office members.

The way you used to encourage everyone with your small pep talk would be a major miss now. You always used to say that before doing anything we should keep calm and always remember any happy memory of ours as it helps to calm us down. 

I wish you good luck and a very happy journey sir/ma’am. I hope you will like your new workplace. It has been such a pleasure working for you, I will try my best to keep in touch with you and you should always keep this in mind if you ever need any help I am always there for you. This company and I will miss you so much.

Yours sincerely,

[Name of sender]

Farewell Letter to Boss


Respected sir/ma’am

It breaks my heart into a million pieces to say goodbye. You cannot even imagine how thankful and grateful I am to you for giving me the opportunity to work for this company.

I remember when I walked into the office for the first time, and I was just about to miss the lift but you held it for me so that I don’t have to wait for the lift again. You are so humble and polite to everyone. The way you motivate and encourage everyone is so amazing. 

The way you handle all the situations and give such amazing advice to everyone is just unbelievable. I thank you so much for believing in me and giving me the chance to prove my capability, not every single person gets the chance to prove themselves.

Seeing you leave this company feels like the moon is leaving the sky. It is so hard to get a boss like you who is so down to earth and gives everyone equal opportunities. I will be there by your side forever and you should keep that in mind. 

From planning your surprise birthday parties to planning your farewell party, our journey together in the office has come to an end. I must say you are the best boss someone can ever have and I am lucky enough to work under your guidance and support for such a long period of time.

Now that I have to say goodbye to you, I really feel so sad just by thinking about the fact that we have to give you a farewell party now, we won’t be able to celebrate your birthday party in the office anymore. Hope you have a great future ahead of you and may god bless you and your family with good health and happiness. We will miss you a lot. Take care of yourself and your family. Best regards.

Yours faithfully,

[Sender’s name]
