This lighthearted resignation letter is also a chance for a soon-to-be-former employee to thank a company supervisor for a retirement or goodbye party thrown on their behalf.
Whoa! What a way to go out! I was really touched that the XYZ Company crew came together to wish me a fond farewell. I have to admit, a couple of the speeches had me near tears. I hope someone got video!
It feels strange to be moving on after so many years, but it’s nice to know that we are parting on good terms.
I’ve sent along my formal resignation letter to HR for the files. Please feel free to reach out to me if you need anything else. There was talk about getting the Widget Department together for a bite to eat sometime soon, and I’d love to see you there.
