There comes a time in our professional lives when we have to say goodbye to our co-workers. Moving on from one company to the next is a natural part of our career growth. These transitions, however, also have a human element to them. Leaving our workplace can be an emotional experience, which sometimes makes it hard to say goodbye.

In these instances, the best course of action is to keep your goodbyes short, sweet, and professional. You may feel the urge to pour your heart out in a lengthy letter, but that could also give you more room for error. The less said, the better. We never know when we will encounter our colleagues again so make sure to be polite concise.

You can still be honest and sincere but you can do so while maintaining a certain level of professionalism. Here are four email templates you can use when writing a goodbye letter to your co-workers.
