Communicating your appreciation and wishes to your boss will keep your relationship strong, even after his/her retirement. Let Workspirited be your guide to finding the right words to express your feelings with these retirement wishes for your boss.
If there’s a party, present your gift and wishes to the retiree at the party. In case there isn’t going to be one, you can drop your retirement wishes in the mail, or drop by the retiree’s home and wish him/her in person.
A simple ‘we’ll miss you’ or ‘best wishes’ cannot be a satisfactory goodbye to a boss who has been more than a mentor to you. It may be uncomfortable for some people to truly speak what’s in their hearts. But at times like these, the sentiments conveyed mean a lot.
In order to demonstrate your gratitude, you need the right happy retirement wishes for your boss. So, invest a little time with us to know what to say to the one person who has inspired you to do better, everyday.
