Dear Mr./Ms. Last Name:

The purpose of this letter is to announce my resignation from Company Name, effective two weeks from this date.

This was not an easy decision to make, on my part. The past ten years have been very rewarding. I’ve enjoyed working for you, observing how our production operations have expanded, and managing a very successful team dedicated to a quality manufactured product delivered on time.

I have accepted a position as VP, Manufacturing for Land Lubber Industries in Watertown, West Virginia. This opportunity gives me the chance to grow professionally and will allow us to relocate just a few miles from our families.

I wish you and the company all the best. I do hope our paths cross again in the future.

Resignation Letter – Relocation

Sub: My Resignation

Dear Mr./Mrs. {Recipient’s Name},

Please accept this letter as a formal notification of my resignation from the position of {Your Position} at {Your Company}. I am required to relocate to {Name of your Place-City/Country} due to {give your reason in brief}. I have already got a job there and my joining date is on {Date: Day/Month/Year}. Thus, I’m requesting you to consider my last working day with {Company Name} to be on {Date: Day/Month/Year}.

The decision of leaving {Your company name} is difficult, both for my family and myself. I have spent a total of {number of years spent} years here and the attachment I have formed is inexpressible. {Your Company} seemed just like a second home to me and all the employees here were no less than family members. I started here as an HR assistant manager and soon progressed to become a Manager in just {total years spent} years. With your help Sir/Ma’am, I consecutively won the best employee award as well. It was only through your abiding faith and encouragement that I have been able to achieve this in such a short period of time. I will thoroughly miss working here and will always remember the support I have got from the co-workers and management.

Apart from all the departments, I will really miss the training & development team the most. Their enthusiasm and fervour towards work, matches no one. I am grateful for the great opportunities I received during my tenure and all these memories will help me progress in my future endeavours.

I assure you that during the next few weeks {write total number of weeks in your notice period} I will complete all the assigned tasks in my bucket, especially {mention the important ongoing projects, reports, and tasks}. I have already done the performance appraisal for all the departments. I have informed my team members about my departure. I am also more than willing to assist in choosing or training a replacement for my position. Please let me know if I can be of assistance during the transition or inform me if there is anything specific that you would like me to do.

Thank you very much for your attention in this matter. It has been a pleasure working with {Company Name} and I wish everyone success in the future.

Best Regards,
{Your Name}

Resignation Letter – Changes within the Company

Sub: Resignation

Dear Mr./Mrs. {Recipient’s Name},

I am writing this letter to resign from my position of {Your Position}. I sincerely regret the fact that I have to leave {Your Company}. However, due to the recent changes made in the company pertaining to {Write a change here, for example the introduction of a policy which outlines the deduction of 5% from an employee’s salary due to late coming}. Hence, I believe it is in my best interest to do so.

While I appreciate this initiative, which will surely ensure punctuality in the workplace, it would have been better had the total working hours and productivity of each employee being taken into account first. I always stayed back beyond my office hours, in order to ensure that my tasks for the day were complete. As a result, almost daily I clocked more than 8:30 hours.

For me functioning under this new policy has become difficult and hence I believe it is better for me to leave. I will miss being associated with {Your Company}. Working for {Your Company}, under {your manager/boss’s name} guidance has enlightened me in every aspect and has also given me the insights and hands on experience on how business in this industry operates. I learned from Mr. Shrirang {HR head} how to communicate with the union leaders and manage their demands. My colleagues and team members were very supportive and we developed a feeling of camaraderie. Thank you for making my tenure here an unforgettable one.

I will ensure that all the tasks currently assigned to me such as the {list your tasks, reports, projects: e.g., Safety inspection for Chakan Plant for this month}, before my official departure. I would also like to help in the transition of my duties so that my department will not face any inconvenience. Please do not hesitate to tell me anything I can help with.

Kindly accept this letter as my official notice of resignation. It has been a pleasure working with {Your Company}. Wishing everyone success in their future endeavours.

Resignation Letter – Rude

Sub: Resignation

Dear Mr./Mrs. {Recipient’s Name},

I wish to resign from my position of {Your Position} at {Your Company}. I believe I have wasted a year of my life while working with {Your Company}. The HR manager Priya does not give the compensation and claims that were promised. I have done over time twenty times and I am yet to receive my payment. Your managers are terrible and very sluggish.

Also, my team manager is good for nothing. I know much more than him, half of the time I was asked to resolve the connectivity issues. Technically I should be receiving his salary. The work stress here is too much. There is no proper employee grievance redressal system.

The only good part here was the companionship of my colleagues. I wish them good future which they will attain only after leaving this Company. I wish them success and hope this Company at least returns their unpaid claims.

Thank you for nothing.

Yours Insincerely
