Employees grow deeply attached to their company. But there does come a time to bid goodbye to their colleagues and the company; it is a very emotional day that bring a rush of memories to their mind. Students are often assigned to write a speech to be delivered on the last day at the farewell ceremony arranged for the departing employee, where he/she recalls all the good things about the management and the peers and the time spent together. Here we are providing you four speeches on the occasion of farewell in office. You can choose any of them as per your requirement.
OFFICE FAREWELL SPEECH
FAREWELL SPEECH IN OFFICE – 1
Warm greetings respected managers and my dear Friends!
Though it’s been 10 years since my association with this company, but it seems my joining in this company was a yesterday affair. And today I am standing in front of you all to deliver my farewell speech. However, there is a big difference between then and now, i.e., the time I joined in here and today when I am leaving. Needless to say, I am bidding goodbye to this company after having gained a wealth of knowledge, which I will treasure forever.
I am thankful to the company for giving me multiple opportunities and work exposure to hone my skills and gain expertise in my domain. In fact, I went beyond my IT department and interacted with people working in other areas, such as Research and Development, Marketing, Analytics, Finance, etc. Getting to work in this prestigious company has been a remarkable learning experience and I am thankful from the bottom of my heart to all my team members and other colleagues for always being on the cooperative front. Whatever I have achieved so far wouldn’t have been possible without the support of my respected manager, Mr. ——— and my team members. It feels as if being here every single day with you all makes my day fulfilling and helps me in becoming a well-rounded individual.
Here, I have learned to do multi-tasking, such as team management, strategy building, real-time plan execution, etc. Earlier, I was short-tempered and fickle-minded, but after taking on the role of a senior, there was no other way for me, but to expand my horizon and embrace other people’s opinion, to value them and listen to them with patience. This has helped me to accomplish my work goals without hurting anyone’s sentiments, I believe!
As a matter of fact, I can apply all these behavioural skills to my personal life as well and easily overcome any dissension or discord in the family so much so that on coming to know that my better half has been given a great working opportunity abroad for which we both will have to relocate, I decided to support her. A team works through team efforts and it’s not just about sharing credits. Similarly, realizing that my marriage is also founded on team effort, I decided to take this call; howsoever tough it was for me.
By citing this instance, I want to emphasize the point that sometimes we should not think about ourselves, but people associated with us. This is the key to maintain relations – be it personal or professional. So when you will be given the team to handle, I know you all will prove to be the good managers. My wish for you all present here is the unending success, prosperity and wealth. May you get what you deserve and earn fulfilling results in all your future projects!
Thank you once again for everything and organizing such an amazing farewell party for me to take back home some fond memories of my last day. I am looking forward to hear more success stories of the company and you all.
FAREWELL SPEECH IN OFFICE – 2
Good Evening Respected Managers and my dear Colleagues!
I never thought this moment would arrive in my life when I would stand amidst you all and prepare to deliver my farewell speech. But, that’s true! Yes, I am leaving the company as I would now be supporting my father’s business. Life gives everyone several opportunities and it’s up to us to grab or leave that. My father is in his old age now and since he needed my support, I had to take this difficult decision to leave this organisation and join my father’s business.
But I would use this platform to thank everyone for your kind support and trust, the company has shown in me. I am leaving with a wealth of knowledge that I’ll always treasure. Working with this organisation has been an incredible learning expedition and I am thankful to everyone I met in this journey as each one of you have played a very important role in my life.
Needless to say, I learnt various skills being associated with this organisation. I was not very good at time-management and decision-making abilities, but having associated with the company and the projects I was assigned, I became confident and a good decision-maker. I manage my time well and have always met my deliverables on time. I am certain that these skills would help me in my future endeavors too.
I’ve also learned to take and give feedback with open-mindedness, to respect other’s opinions and to value other ideas too.
I joined this company as a Fresher; full of theoretical knowledge and energy made me somewhat over-confident. Thankfully, my job role threw enormous challenges at me that not only taught me practical lessons of work and life but also made me compassionate and grounded. I am thankful to my respected manager who gave me several projects because of which I acquired vast knowledge and experience.
I’ve also realized that being a team member is much more than just sharing the credit, it also require your dedication, hard-work and compromise at various occasions. Team-work makes you a leader, follower and a good person too.
It gives me all the more reasons to believe that a successful family life is also the result of good team-work. Thus, when my father needed me in his harsh days, I couldn’t deny. I am all set to accept the new and unforeseen challenges of my new life now.
My aspiration for you all is to continue with the team-work, stay dedicated and focused to taste the fruit of success. This is a highly promising company and it gives equal growth opportunity to everyone irrespective of your background and knowledge.
It’s been a wonderful experience working here and I am going to miss you all very much. I am taking along with me fond memories and I request all of you to stay connected with me.
Thank you once again for this wonderful party and wish you all the very best for future!
FAREWELL SPEECH IN OFFICE – 3
Good evening management, colleagues and my dear friends.
It feels great to see you all here. During my tenure in this company, I have witnessed how loaded you people stay with your work, thank you so much for taking out time for me.
It is a situation of mixed feelings for me. We have worked together for so long but now the time to bid goodbye has arrived. Though one never consciously works for this day, but there does come a time when one has to move on. Standing here, I feel that I have lost something much concrete today; my world where you all were involved is going to diminish.
From this company, there are many brilliant takeaways for me. From here I’ve learnt how to take direction, criticism, and compliments in a positive way for my good. I have become an open minded person. These are a few things I wasn’t so great at taking before, and now I feel as though I can apply those in different situations of my future life.
All thanks to the close interventions of my boss for upgrading my skills and knowledge in every field. Dear boss, your moral support and helping attitude enhanced my working skills. It may sound flattering to many but I have been blessed with the best boss in this company.
My friends and teammates, I will surely miss the moments which I have spent with all of you. The fun during lunch time, birthday celebrations, and small get-togethers are some of the best moments which I will never forget. Being part of a team has taught me skills that I can use in more than just the professional area of my life.
I am really glad that I met all of you and trust me I have thoroughly enjoyed each and every moment I have spent in this company, the time spent here will be one of the most memorable ones in my life. I would definitely miss being a part of it. You people will continue to occupy a special part in my life.
This farewell is just a physical goodbye for me. We will stay connected and share this beautiful bond of ours throughout the life. It has been a beautiful memorable journey in this company along with you people.
I fall short of words to express my gratitude for you people. It has truly been a pleasure working here and I cannot express how badly I will miss it. The fun times and learning times have been so well balanced during this tenure of mine in this company that I feel confused on which part should I thank you all more, The fun-filled one or the learning ones. Just kidding! Every moment spent with you all has got a special value for me.
I take with me fond memories, valuable skills, and I hope to one day leave an impression on others similar to the one you have left on me.
Thank you everyone for being here. Thank you! Miss you all! Stay connected.
FAREWELL SPEECH IN OFFICE – 4
Good morning everyone. Hope you all are doing great!
Thanks for being present here. This is the most difficult day I have faced in this company. Imagine, leaving your home for office and knowing that this is the last one.
I know that this decision is mine but the situations and feelings have been such that leaving this company makes me so nostalgic. There are numerous memories that I have in this company. I still remember the day when I first sat at my desk and was allotted the work after my formal induction and introduction. It is a great memory to cherish. And, today is yet another day that is giving me indescribable feelings.
It is really hard to say “goodbye”, but the time has come to say so. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for the support I received here in this company and to let you all know that I have truly rejoiced the friendly and encouraging atmosphere in which I have worked here. Thanks to the board of directors, my boss and all other people of this company. I have found working here to be so inspiring. I have learned to try to think bigger and involve others outside of my trade or group when it comes to problem-solving, and have had fun with the resulting creative energy here.
The journey here has been a complete roller coaster. Happy-sad moments, lonely and overcrowded days. Everything, literally everything faced here has been incredible. During this phase, I have been working with an extraordinary boss and enthusiastic teammates.
Sir, you are one of those personalities who spreads sunshine in the lives of others. Words have not yet been created to express what I owe to you. Your love, affection, care and knowledge transfer has built strengths within me.
During my tenure in this company, I really gained many important and essential personal characteristics and professional skills. You know your efforts have been worth when you get to learn new things every day, so have been my three years here. From taking trainings to giving trainings, from witnessing the knowledge transfer to executing the knowledge transfer, everything has been unique in its own way.
Thank you for this farewell party and I look forward to hearing of your future successes. It is finally the time to hug each other and say goodbye. This goodbye is not forever, it just marks a brief pause in our daily meetings and lunches together. We are going to stay connected always. Many birthday treats and promotion parties are to be accompanied together, no matter my company will be different now but still our happy and sad moments are to witness our friendship in future endeavours as well.
It has been a pleasure working with you all. Memories will be cherished by me always. Our coffee time chats and those deep target planning. Everything to cherish forever. We will stay connected no matter where we are.
Thank you for your presence here and also throughout my journey in this company.
