Ways to Say Goodbye to Coworkers- Examples

Farewell can be an emotional time for both the one who’s leaving and those left behind. Especially when you’ve worked in an organization for a large amount of time, your colleagues and coworkers become an extended family to you.

Our coworkers and colleagues often become our best friends who support us through the thick and thin of our lives.

You should keep it cheerful, polite, and fun instead of pointing out that you’re about to get separated.

Ways to Say Goodbye to Coworkers 

To help you with your goodbye speeches on your last working day, here are few ways in which you can say the final goodbye to your fellow employees who are soon going to be your ex-employees: 

  • Working with you never felt like working. You were an extended family to me. I still remember my first day when I joined as a shy boy/girl who knew nothing about the job, but you all helped me to learn, know and grow. I will miss our lunches at the dine-in, miss our regular coffee breaks, miss the crazy workload during the closing, and miss us thinking of excuses not to attend the weekly meetings. I will miss you all very much. Hoping to always keep in touch with every one of you.

  • From now on, I won’t call you my colleagues, but I will always remember you as my friends. Thank you for giving me some of the most beautiful days of my life. Thank you for supporting me and rooting for me in times of crisis. There has never been a team as helpful and as loyal as you. A team like you would be hard to find anywhere else. Thank you for always having my back. Yes, it is a difficult time. But let’s not get weary. Change is the very essence of life. Although I am no longer a part of this company, I will still be just one call away, as always. Feel free to reach me anytime you need and oblige me by letting me assist you in any way I can.

  • So, finally, the day has come. This is my last day working with you all. I see some of you crying and most of you with a glum face. I urge you not to be sad. We’ll surely keep in touch. This is just a new beginning for me as well as you all. You were more like friends to me than just my colleagues. Thank you for being a source of constant support and strength. Friends like you are hard to find, and I will miss every day of my job here. I wish every one of you all the very best for all your future endeavors. I hope our paths keep crossing time and again. Stay in touch!

  • We come to a close to an eventful and enriching journey. Thank you for making every day of my tenure extremely productive and valuable. You were always there to push me to bring the best out of me. I am glad to call you people my friends whom I once used to call my colleagues. This was not just a workplace for me but more like my home. You are why I am finding it so difficult to leave the job today, but circumstances need me to. Wishing you all the very best for your future possibilities and hope that we keep in touch.

  • It is time that we bid goodbye. It is time that we part. But we must not be weary. I had the best time working with all of you, and I want to end it on a good note. There were days filled with the happiest of feelings that I could muster. There were also days when the workload would get to us, and we would have to meet a short deadline. We have seen it all. Whether the day was bright or dark, we went through it all and came out stronger. Thank you for being the reason for my confidence and my belief in myself. This journey wouldn’t have been possible if it weren’t for your constant support and encouragement towards me. 

  • This has been an amazing ride. We did it all together, from meetings to deadlines, and today, I stand before you all, asking for leave. Tomorrow will be the same old day in this building with just the difference that you won’t see me at my desk, you won’t eat with me at lunch, you won’t walk with me to the cafeteria, and I won’t be there working with you. All things would be the same. But for me, nothing would ever be the same again because I will not be having my friends around me anymore. I hope we keep in touch and keep crossing each other’s paths time and again. 

  • It is hard even to imagine that tomorrow I won’t be seeing your faces. In the coming day, we will all start afresh. Though it does sound exciting, it comes with the incomparable sorrow of losing some of the best colleagues in the world. My time with you all has been utter bliss. I will miss every day that I worked here. Thank you for making each day of mine such a success. Thank you for always sending me back home smiling. You were a gem of people, and I will always cherish you in my heart. May all of you do your very best in the future.

  • Although I am leaving today, I know I am leaving this place in good hands. I am honored and privileged to have worked with such fantastic and diligent co-workers. Kudos to you on everything you have achieved as a team and bring this company to a greater height. May you all keep flourishing and prospering the same way for the great of your lives. Hoping to come across you someday somewhere. I will always keep in touch. You all will always be cherished in my sweetest memories.

  • That cabin will have a new owner tomorrow. That chair will have a new person to sit in. This place will have a new person to work with you towards achieving your daily goals. But for me, some people will always remain stagnant in my heart. Some people will always be there no matter what comes and goes. You, my dear friends, hold a special place in my heart. I may be leaving the office, but you will always be there with me. The experience I gained while working with you is unparalleled to any other experience in this world. 

  • We have come a long way, seen a lot of things. It’s time to bid adieu now. I know this farewell won’t be taken well by many of us, but we must part with smiling faces and not sad ones because this is a new beginning, and we must accept it wholeheartedly. I know you will all do very well in your lives. I hope I was as fruitful and helpful to you as you all were in my life. I made a new family here, and a family always finds a way to stick together. I will always stick to you in the times to come. Good luck with your future. 

  • Thank you for making me a better person every passing day. Thank you for offering me such an extraordinary adieu. Today, I am a confident and a grown man, and it wouldn’t have been possible if it weren’t for you. I have learned some of the most valuable lessons of life while working with you all. The kind of dedication, teamwork, diligence, and assiduousness that you all showcased was something incredible to experience and learn from. Thank you for helping me build from my mistakes and become a better person each day. 

  • From my very first day to today, it has been a roller coaster ride. We have seen the highs, and we have seen the lows, and we all took it with a smiling face and resolute determination. We worked together like a marvelous team for whom nothing was ever impossible. No matter what came our way, we tackled it the best possible way. I will miss all of you in my coming life. It is not going to be easy to work without such talented minds like you. May you all do your very best in the future, and we meet again soon. 

  • Our weekly lunches to our Friday night movies, I’m gonna miss it all very much. Life is taking a new turn for all of us. We all will have to adjust to the new changes. But, I urge you all to do it with a smile. Don’t bid me goodbye with dry and sad faces. This is a new beginning, and we’ll meet again. You were the best team I have ever worked with. You were the reason why I could look forward to work each day. Thank you for giving me a memory to always cherish in my heart. You all will always hold a very special place in my heart.

Unfortunately, not everyone gets a chance to work with such diligent and hard-working coworkers who make each task so easy and much fun. Thank you for such an amazing time.
