“Dear friends and colleagues.
As some of you might know, I will be leaving (COMPANY NAME) on (DATE).
I have had some time to reflect on the decision that has been made, and one thing remains for sure, and that is, that I’m going to miss every single one of you, when I’m not working here anymore.
You have made my time here unforgettable, and I couldn’t think of a better place and better colleagues, to have spent the last(TIME AT THE COMPANY) with.
I hope you all take care of yourselves and i wish you the best of luck in the future, with the hope that our paths might cross again some time in the future.
(YOUR FULL NAME)
Leaving with a last good impression is really important, because who knows, maybe you can benefit from your time at the company, or the network you have developed at the company, later on in the future.
You dont necessarily have to get into details with why you are leaving the company, or what your plans are next, the important thing is just to say a proper farewell. 👋
