How to Write a Farewell Letter to an Employee

As an employer, you will have seen many employees come and go throughout your years in business. While some may be better forgotten, it is the good ones who have helped you build your business into what it is today. Considering this, when the time comes to say farewell to an employee, it is an appropriate gesture to write a farewell letter on behalf of the company. A farewell letter should acknowledge the contributions of the employee to the company, and wish him/her all the best in the future.

Whatever you write in your farewell letter, it is your spelling and grammar that will make all the difference between a so-so letter and a great one. Your company image and the respect of your employees depend on it, so it is worth putting some extra effort into your English writing. WhiteSmoke is the perfect tool for giving your letter a final proofread. As an all-in-one solution, WhiteSmoke features a grammar checker, a spell checker, a thesaurus and dictionary combined with a special enrichment feature to make your marketing communications stand out.
