Letter Announcing an Employee’s Retirement

Businesses have to say goodbye to their employees at some point when their term of work is completed or they reach the time of retirement. Since employees who retire have been serving businesses for long, this is a very important time to recognize their services to the fullest before they leave.

Usually, an announcement letter contains not only the announcement of an employee’s retirement but also a brief note of compliment for him. Most businesses arrange a farewell party to honor the retiring employee. If such an event is planned, it is usually mentioned in the retirement announcement letter. These are business norms and they should be practiced in order to make the business place a professional sphere.
